Stephanie Says Lyrics

by Velvet Underground

Stephanie says that she wants to know
Why she's given half her life to people she hates now?
Stephanie says when answering the phone
What country shall I say is calling from across the world?

But she's not afraid to die, the people all call her Alaska
Between worlds, so the people ask her
'Cause it's all in her mind, it's all in her mind

Stephanie says that she wants to know
Why it is though she's the door she can't be the room?
Stephanie says but doesn't hang up the phone
What sea shell she is calling from across the world?

But she's not afraid to die, the people all call her Alaska
Between worlds, so the people ask her
'Cause it's all in her mind, it's all in her mind

Then asking, "Is it good or bad?"
It's such an icy feeling, it's so cold in Alaska
It's so cold in Alaska, it's so cold in Alaska
