Tight toy night, streets were so bright
The world looked so thin and between my bones and skin
There stood another person who was a little surprised
To be face to face with a world so alive
I fell.

Did you feel low?
No
Huh?

I fell right into the Arms of Venus de Milo
I stood up, walked out of the Arms of Venus de Milo
You know it's all like some new kind of drug
My senses are sharp and my hands are like gloves
Broadway looked so medieval
It seemed to flap, like little pages
I fell sideways laughing with a friend from many stages
How l felt

Did you feel low?
Not at all!
Huh?

I fell right into the Arms of Venus de Milo.

[instrumental bridge]

Suddenly my eyes went so soft and shaky
I knew there was pain but pain is not aching
Then Richie, Richie said:
"Hey man let's dress up like cops
Think of what we could do!"
But something, something said "you better not"
And I fell

Did you feel low?
Not at all!
Huh?

I stood up, walked out of the Arms of Venus de Milo

    General Commentthis song is about Richard Hell and Tom Verlaine hanging out as kids. They were childhood friends and came to New York together..The irony of this song is it's beauty - " I fell right into the arms of Venus de Milo" - have you seen the statue? notice what she is missing??? So I guess he fell into nothing...
