This song is stunningly simple! All the way through it's just
the same four chords repeated. Each repetition is one round.
The key is Eb major, and everything from there is improvisation :D

  The round:
 | Eb | Bb | Cm | Ab |



 Song Structure:

   Lou Reed intro     2 rounds

   Verse              7

   Chorus             4

   Verse              2

   Chorus             ad.lib.



All the way through Lou Reed is playing some simple bar chords on a clean
electric guitar. There's no pattern to it or any notable parts, so I didn't
see any point in transcribing any it. At the end he does some basic Hendrixy
solo stuff, which isn't anything special either.
However, in the Choruses he plays a nice guitar layer. It's a heavily
distorted guitar, almost sounding like a saxophone, playing one note at
a time. These are the four rounds of the first Chorus.
Below [x] means to do a pinch harmonic one octave above.

 LYRICS
**********
I was lying in my bed last night
Staring at a ceiling full of stars
When it suddenly hit me
I just have to let you know how I feel

We live together in a photograph of time
I look into your eyes
And the seas open up to me
I tell you I love you
And I always will
I know that you can't tell me
I know that you can't tell me
So I'm left to pick up the hints, the little symbols of your devotion
So I'm left to pick up the hints, the little symbols of your devotion

I feel your fists
And I know it's out of love
I feel the whip
And I know it's out of love
I feel your burning eyes
Burning holes straight through my heart
It's out of love

I accept and I collect upon my body
The memories of your devotion

Give me a little fistful of love
