about

David Bowie RIP *-( This song was obviously written and recorded just after Bowie's death and I've simply added it as a bonus track to my earlier album.

lyrics

The day that Bowie died
Woke crying at your side
There was no call from the action man, though he had a plan
Took strangeness in his stride

The day the Wall came down
We were dying in our room
There was no call from a higher ground,
just a changing sound
That echoed with the bloom

All the roads are clear now...
No message came in from Major Tom
But a black star on the horizon taught us everything we needed to know

Told us everything we needed to know
Everything. We needed to grow
Needed to know
Oh, we needed to know

The day that Bowie died
Woke crying at your side
If dust is all we'll ever be,
Then let that be, an end to it
You've torn it and your pride

Was there ever really a Major Tom?
A black star, with the pressure on
Showed us everything we needed to know
Taught us everything we needed to grow
Everything. We needed to show
That we did know

The day that Bowie died
Knew everything was alright
