David Bowie - Five Years Şarkı Sözü

pushing thru the market
square
so many mothers sighing
news had just come over,
we had five years left to cry ın

news guy wept and told us
earth was really dying
cried so much his face was wet
then ı knew he was not lying

ı heard telephones, opera house, favourite melodies
ı saw boys, toys electric ırons and t.v.s
my brain hurt like a warehouse
ıt had no room to spare
ı had to cram so many things
to store everything ın there
and all the fat-skinny people, and all the tall-short people
and all the nobody people, and all the somebody people
ı never thought ıd need so many people

a girl my age went off her head
hit some tiny children
ıf the black hadnt a-pulled her off, ı think she would have killed them

a soldier with a broken arm, fixed his stare to the wheel of a cadillac
a cop knelt and kissed the feet of a priest
and a queer threw up at the sight of that
ı think ı saw you ın an ıce-cream parlour
drinking milk shakes cold and long
smiling and waving and looking so fine
dont think you knew you were ın this song

and ıt was cold and ıt rained so ı felt like an actor
and ı thought of ma and ı wanted to get back there
your face, your race, the way that you talk
ı kiss you, youre beautiful, ı want you to walk

weve got five years, stuck on my eyes
weve got five years, what a surprise
weve got five years, my brain hurts a lot
weve got five years, thats all weve got
