Title: Afraid
Artist: Nico
Album: Desertshore

“Cease to know or to tell or to see or to be your own. Cease to know or to tell or to see or to be your own. Have someone else’s will as your own. Have someone else’s will as your own. You are beautiful and you are alone. You are beautiful and you are alone.”

youtube

And at the edge of 46 I’m still one fucked up little kid
Who has my fears and has my doubts
Who has my challenges and bouts
And though I moved out here I know I’m still that kid from Ohio
Still has hopes, still has dreams, still has not learned a fucking thing
And though I moved out here I know I’m still that kid from Ohio
Who’s living in a world that I’m still getting to know

Nico - “Afraid”

You are beautiful, and you are alone.

Janitor of LunacyNico (Desertshore, 1970)

Janitor of lunacy 
Paralyze my infancy 
Petrify the empty cradle 
Bring hope to them and me

Janitor of tyranny 
Testify my vanity 
Mortalize my memory 
Deceive the Devil’s deed 

Tolerate my jealousy 
Recognize the desperate need 

Janitor of lunacy 
Identify my destiny 
Revive the living dream 
Forgive their begging scream 

Seal the giving of their seed 
Disease the breathing grief
