She’ll Drive the Big Car – David Bowie

She waited by the moon
She was sick with fear and cold
She felt too old for all of this
Of course she never showed
She lugged her suitcase to the bus
Melted home through the snow
North along riverside

She slips beneath the sheets
A husbands quiet devoted wife
But strangers sad and nervous
By the dawns early light
Loves lies like a dead cloud
On a shabby, yellow lawn
Up on riverside

She’ll drive the big car
He’ll sit behind
She’ll keep an eye on Jessica
South along the Hudson

She’ll turn the radio high
Find a station playing sad, sad soul
Just a little bit louder now
South along the Hudson yea

Just a little bit faster now
Just a little bit louder now
Just a little bit angry now
South along the Hudson, yea

And she’ll drive the big car
And talk herself insane
Just a little bit louder now
Just a little bit angry now

Way back when Millennium
Meant racing to the light
He promised her a dream-life
He’d take her back to street-life

Away from violent water
With its Cormorants and leaves
Up on riverside

She’ll drive the big car
But he’ll sit behind
Bursting her bubbles of Ludlow and Grand
South along the Hudson
She’ll turn the radio way up high
Find a station playing sad, sad soul

Just a little bit louder now
South along the Hudson

Just a little bit faster now
Just a little bit louder now
Just a little bit angry now
South along the Hudson, yea

Just a little bit faster now
Just a little bit louder now
Just a little bit angry now
South along the Hudson, yea

Star – David Bowie

Tony went to fight in Belfast
Rudi stayed at home to starve
I could make it all worthwhile
as a rock & roll star
Bevan tried to change the nation
Sonny wants to turn the world, well he can tell you that
he tried
I could make a transformation as a rock & roll star

[CHORUS (x2)]
So inviting – so enticing to play the part
I could play the wild mutation
as a rock & roll star
I could do with the money
I’m so wiped out with things as they are
I’d send my photograph to my honey – and I’d c’mon like
a regular superstar

I could fall asleep at night
as a rock & roll star
I could fall in love all right
as a rock & roll star

You’ve Been Around – David Bowie

Where’s the pain in the violent night?
I’m depressed by the grin
I stay over many years
I should have thought of that
For the love of the money
Like a black-hearted violin
It’s the nature of being

It’s too many lonely nights
I can’t tell bad from wrong
I can’t pass you by
Too exchanging
You’ve been around
But you’ve changed me

Where the flesh meets the spirit world
Where the traffic is thin
I slip from a vacant view
I should have thought of that
And the sound of tomorrow
Like a black-hearted vile thing
Like the silence of tension
It’s too many lonely nights
I can’t tell good from bad
I can’t pass you by
Too exchanging
You’ve been around
But you’ve changed me
You’ve been around
Can’t pass you by
You’ve been around
But you’ve changed me
Ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-change!
Too exchanging
You’ve been around
but you’ve changed me
You’ve been around
can’t pass you by
