Velvet Underground, The - I Found A Reason Lyrics




Pa papa papa papa
Pa papa papa papa
Pa papa papa papa
Pa papa papa papa

I found a reason to keep living
Oh and the reason, dear, is you
I found a reason to keep singing
Oh and the reason, dear, is you

Oh I do believe
If you don't like things you leave
For some place you never gone before

Pa papa papa papa
Pa papa papa papa
Pa papa papa papa
Pa papa papa papa

Honey, I found a reason to keep living
And you know the reason, dear it's you
And I've walked down life's lonely highways
Hand in hand with myself
And I realized how many paths have crossed between us

Oh I do believe
You are what you perceive
What comes is better than what came before

Oh I do believe
You are what you perceive
What comes is better than what came before

Pa papa papa papa
Pa papa papa papa
Pa papa papa papa
Pa papa papa papa
And you'd better come, come come, come to me
Come come, come to me

pa papa papa pa

  7. Matt Matt

    Massive attack killed a cover of this for there opening song on tour. Best show I've been to in a long time

  8. alva boy

    this sounds so similar yet so different from the Strokes- Is This It

  9. Nick You

    Massive Attack just opened with a cover of this song on their Mezzanine XXI tour. While showing 3d graphics of a utopian community dream that never came to be. It was powerful.

    terriblelove1

    I was at one of the shows. So good. Beautiful visuals and an excellent cover. You may already know this, but the first verse of this song, when Lou sings "I found a reason [to keep living]" is sampled in Risingson.

  10. Adam Hansen

    Lou once said in an interview that his favorite album is always the last one. Now this song makes sense

  11. ziqwcwjob

  13. Cringe Captor Shrekura

    I do believe

  14. C Synch

  15. Matthew Kotarski

    The original lyrics were, "You better cum,
    cum, cum, cum for me,
    cum,cum, cum for me"
    But the record company made them change them so that they could have at least one "radio friendly" song.

    Josh B

    August Greig sweet jane, who loves the sun, and sweet nuthin are pretty radio friendly.

  27. comrade hermit

    Best version. Fuck anyone who says otherwise.

    comrade hermit
