The Needle And The Damage Done

The Needle And The Damage Done

By Neil Young

“Needle And The Damage Done”

I caught you knockin’
at my cellar door
I love you, baby,
can I have some more
Ooh, ooh, the damage done.  I hit the city and
I lost my band
I watched the needle                                                            Personification
take another man
Gone, gone, the damage done.I sing the song
because I love the man
I know that some
of you don’t understand
to keep from running out.I’ve seen the needle
and the damage done
A little part of it in everyone
But every junkie’s                                                                  Simile
like a settin’ sun.
