Because You're Young
David Bowie Lyrics


Psychodelicate girl
Come out to play
Little metal faced-boy
Don't stay away
They're so war-torn and resigned
She can't talk anymore
What are they trying to prove?
What would they like to find?

It's love back to front and no sides (like I say)
These pieces are broken (like I say)
These pieces are broken (oh, no, no, no, no, no)

Because you're young
You'll meet a stranger some night
Because you're young
What could be nicer for you?
And it makes me sad
So I'll dance my life away
A million dreams, a million scars

He punishes hard
Was loving her such a crime?
She took back everything she said
Left him nearly out of his mind
They're people I know, people I love
They seem so unhappy
Dead or alive

It's love back to front and no sides (like I say)
These pieces are broken (like I say)
These pieces are broken (oh, no, no, no)

Because you're young
You'll meet a stranger some night
Because you're young
What could be nicer for you?
And it'll makes me sad
So I'll dance my life away
A million dreams, a million scars

A million dreams
A million scars
A million
A million dreams
A million dreams
A million
A million
A million
A million

I loved the singles Fashion and Ashes to Ashes when they came out, but it took many more years to appreciate the brilliance of the Scary Monsters album. Better late than never.

stephen fermoyle

it is interesting how so many BOWIE SONGS that never got released are true gems.

Was in the same undecided boat on its arrival.
Not sure of the music when I first heard it except for the singles..

Its sounding much better today.

i like to think Bowie was a little ahead in time , song i found weird during the 90s sounds great to day

E. Gündoğan

Most people only know about Life on Mars and starman etc... Very underappreciated his other brilliant stuff.

Kris Scanlon

Indeed this is either the end of an era or the beginning of the next one for Bowie...lots of new sounds here.

Franck Gérard

Exactly, from the famous album Scary Monsters 🖤
