temptation inside your heart lyrics – velvet underground

somebody shut the door
i know where temptation lies
inside of your heart
(you can talk during this)

i know where the evil lies inside of your heart
well, get out of here
if you’re gonna try to make it right, you’re surely gonna end up wrong
(wrong, wrong, wrong, wrong)

oh, shut the door
(ah!)
that’s the only chord i know

i know where the mirror’s edge is inside of your heart
bet she didn’t pay a dollar for it
i know where the razor’s edge is inside of your heart
(motown!)
it’s not even five feet

well, if you’re gonna make it right, you’re surely gonna end up wrong
(you don’t look like martha and the vandellas)
oh, she’s just gonna start it all over again, somebody get her out of here
electricity comes from other planets
(ooh!)
(it’s not that a bad solo
four times – oh – is pretty together)
(you can’t say that)
(yes i can, i can talk to myself this way)
(i’ll lock the door this time)

i know where temptation lies inside of your heart
yes, she’s ready
i know where the evil lies inside of your heart
she ready?
well, if you’re gonna try to make it right, you’re surely gonna end up wrong

oh, hold it, start again
well, new york buildings are very high
and not at all offensive
lock the door
gonna carry on at infinite length, my dear
the pope in the silver castle

was that awful?
hey, that’s fine, that’s it
