Songs for Drella

Synopsis: Lou Reed and John Cale perform their album "Songs for Drella" a tribute to Andy Worhol
Genre: Music
Director(s): Edward Lachman
55 min

We're all improvising

five movies in a week

If Hollywood doesn't call us

we'll be sick

Starlight open wide

Do to movies what you did to art

Can you see beauty in ugliness

or is it playing in the dirt

There are stars out on the New York streets

We want to capture them on film

But if no one wants to see them

We'll make another and another

Starlight let us in that magic room

We've all dreamt of Hollywood

it can't happen too soon

Won't you give us a

million dollars the rent is due

Andy will give you 2 movies and a painting

Starlight open wide!


Faces and names

I wish they were the same

Faces and names only

cause trouble for me

Faces and names

If we all looked the same

and we all had the same name

I wouldn't be jealous of you

or you jealous of me

Faces and names

I always fall in love

with someone who looks

the way I wish that I could be

I'm always staring

at someone who hurts

And the one they hurt is me

Faces and names,

to me they're all the same

If I looked like you

and you looked like me

There'd be less trouble you see

I'd disappear into that wall

and never talk

Faces and names

I wish I was a robot or a machine

Without a feeling or a thought

People who want to meet

the name I have

Are always disappointed

when they meet me

Faces and names,

I wish they were the same

Faces and names only

cause problems for me

Faces and names

I'd rather be a hole in the wall

looking out on the other side

I'd rather look and listen

listen and not talk

To faces and names

I had a breakdown when I was a kid

I lost my hair when I was young

If you dress older when you're not

as your really age you look the same

If we all looked the same

we wouldn't play these games

Me dressing for you and

you dressing for me
