Sunday
David Bowie Lyrics


Jump to: Overall Meaning ↴  Line by Line Meaning ↴

Nothing remains
We could run
When the rain slows
Look for the cars or signs of life
Where the heat goes
Look for the drifters
We should crawl under the bracken
Look for the shafts of light on the road
Where the heat goes

Everything has changed
For in truth, it's the beginning of nothing
And nothing has changed
Everything has changed
For in truth, it's the beginning of an end
And nothing has changed
And everything has changed

In your fear
Of what we have become
Take to the fire
Now we must burn
All that we are
Rise together
Through these clouds
As on wings

In your fear, seek only peace
In you fear, seek only love
In your fear, seek only peace
In you fear, seek only love
In your fear, in your fear
As on wings
This is the trip
And this is the business we take
This is our number
All my trials, Lord
Will be remembered
Everything has changed

Overall Meaning

The lyrics to David Bowie's song "Sunday" are quite complex and open to interpretation. One way to read them is to view the song as a reflection on the uncertainty and transience of life. The repeated phrase "nothing has changed" suggests a feeling of stagnation or lack of progress, while the talk of "shafts of light on the road" and "rising together" hints at a desire for something more.


The image of running through the rain and looking for signs of life suggests a feeling of restlessness or searching for something more in life. The line "where the heat goes" could be seen as a metaphor for passion or energy, which the singer seems to be seeking.


There is also an element of fear in the lyrics, with the repeated injunction to "seek only peace" and "seek only love" suggesting a desire to escape from anxiety or turmoil. The final lines about trials being remembered could be seen as a reminder that even in difficult times, there is the potential for growth and change.


Overall, the lyrics to "Sunday" suggest a sense of longing and searching for meaning, combined with a fear of the unknown and a desire for stability and security.
