Rock ‘n’ Roll Suicide

by

David Bowie

        Time takes a cigarette, puts it in your mouth 
        You pull on your finger, then another finger, then your cigarette 
        The wall-to-wall is calling, it lingers, then you forget 
        Ohhh how how how, you're a rock n roll suicide 
         
        You're too old to lose it, too young to choose it 
        And the clocks waits so patiently on your song 
        You walk past a cafe but you don't eat when you've lived too long 
        Oh, no, no, no, you're a rock n roll suicide 
        
        Chev brakes are snarling as you stumble across the road 
        But the day breaks instead so you hurry home 
        Don't let the sun blast your shadow 
        Don't let the milk float ride your mind 
        You're so natural - religiously unkind 
         
        Oh no love! you're not alone 
        You're watching yourself but you're too unfair 
        You got your head all tangled up but if I could only 
        Make you care 
        Oh no love! you're not alone 
        No matter what or who you've been 
        No matter when or where you've seen 
        All the knives seem to lacerate your brain 
        I've had my share, I'll help you with the pain 
        You're not alone 
         
        Just turn on with me and you're not alone 
        Let's turn on with me and you're not alone (wonderful) 
        Let's turn on and be not alone (wonderful) 
        Gimme your hands cause you're wonderful (wonderful) 
        Gimme your hands cause you're wonderful (wonderful) 
        Oh gimme your hands.
