Lover To The Dawn

(David Bowie)

And as the sparrow sings
Dawn chorus for
Someone else to hear
The thinker sits alone growing older
And so bitter

She gave them life
She gave them all
They drained her very soul dry... dry
Hey hey hey bitter girl
We're out to sitting here digging you
We flew done here just to figure you
It's easy
Don't be so bitter
Oh oh oh crazy girl
You gave too much and you got nothing
Too many problems and not one thing
In return
Left high and dry

And as the sunrise stream
Flickers on
She finds lavender
To fight the beckoning
