John Cale – I Believe lyrics

Words and music: lou reed & john cale

Valerie solanis took the elevator got off at the 4th floor
Valerie solanis took the elevator got off at the 4th floor
She pointed the gun at andy saying you cannot control me anymore

And I believe there's got to be some retribution
I believe an eye for an eye is elemental
And I believe that something's wrong if she's alive right now

Valerie solanis took three steps pointing at the floor
Valerie solanis waved her gun pointing at the floor
From inside her idiot madness spoke and bang
Andy fell onto the floor

And I believe life's serious enough for retribution
I believe being sick is no excuse and
I believe I would've pulled the switch on her myself

When they got him to the hospital his pulse was gone
They thought that he was dead
His guts were pouring from his wounds onto the floor
They thought that he was dead
Not until years later would the hospital do to him what she could not
Andy said, "where were you, you didn't come to see me"
Andy said, "i think I died, why didn't you come to see me"
Andy said, ""t hurt so much, they took blood from my hand"

I believe there's got to be some retribution
I believe there's got to be some retribution
I believe we are all the poorer for it now


Visit me, why didn't you visit me
Visit me, why didn't you visit me
