Lou Reed lyrics : "Trade In"

I met a new me at 8 am
The other one got lost
This was not a trade in

Although I wouldn't believe the cost
I woke up crying as we said goodbye
Me an my old self

Each day he vanished more and more
As I became someone else


He actually was murdered I had taken him apart
But when I put him back together
I couldn't find his heart

It was resting underneath a chair
In a bed of bright tin foil
If I pulled back the flaps

I could still see it beat
I could still hear his voice uncoil


As I said :
I want a trade in
A 14th chance at this life

I've met a woman with a thousand faces
And I want to make her my wife


How could I have been so mistaken
How could I think that it was true
A child that is raised by an idiot

And that idiot then becomes you
How could I believe in a movie
How could I believe in a book

But most of all how could I listen to you
Such an obvious schmuck
A life spent listening to $$#holes

It's funny but it's true
So get rid of them I said to myself
But first I'm getting rid of you


I want a trade in
A 14th chance at this life

I've met a woman with a thousand faces
And I want to make her my wife


Take me over to the window
My heart said to my head
Please set me on fine

So we can start again
I was so wrong that it's funny
And I can't apologize/ but instead,

You can be everything that I'm not
The second that I die


I want a trade in
The second chance at this life
I've met a woman with a thousand faces

And I want to make her my wife
