Modern Love
by David Bowie

I know when to go out
Know when to stay in
Get things done

I catch a paper boy
But things don't really change
I'm standing in the wind
But I never wave bye-bye
But I try, I try
There's no sign of life
It's just the power to charm
I'm lying in the rain
But I never wave bye-bye
But I try, I try
Never gonna fall for

(Modern love) walks beside me
(Modern love) walks on by
(Modern love) gets me to the church on time
(Church on time) terrifies me
(Church on time) makes me party
(Church on time) puts my trust in God and man
(God and man) no confession
(God and man) no religion
(God and man) don't believe in modern love

It's not really work
It's just the power to charm
I'm still standing in the wind
But I never wave bye bye
But I try, I try
Never gonna fall for

(Modern love) walks beside me
(Modern love) walks on by
(Modern love) gets me to the church on time
(Church on time) terrifies me
(Church on time) makes me party
(Church on time) puts my trust in God and man
(God and man) no confession
(God and man) no religion
(God and man) don't believe in modern love

(Modern love) walks beside me
(Modern love) walks on by
(Modern love) gets me to the church on time
(Church on time) terrifies me
(Church on time) makes me party
(Church on time) puts my trust in God and man
(God and man) no confession
(God and man) no religion
(God and man) I don't believe in modern love

Modern love (modern love)
Modern love (modern love)
Modern love (modern love)
Modern love (modern love)
Modern love (modern love)
Modern love (modern love)
Modern love (modern love)
Modern love (modern love)
(Modern love)
(Modern love)
(Modern love)
(Modern love)
Modern love, walks beside me
(Modern love)
Modern love, walks on by
(Modern love)
Modern love, walks beside me
(Modern love)
Modern love, walks on by
(Modern love)
Never gonna fall for
(Modern love)
(Modern love)

I met him in NYC. Even though you could feel that you were around a super human, he was extremely soft spoken and kind. Rest In Peace, Starman.

HALF HUMAN, HALF MARTIAN

Cool

I use to drive a Yellow cab in NYC and picked him up twice. Yeah he is really laid back and a lot shorter than I though he would be. Well I'm 6'3" but when I got out to help him with bags he must have been around 5'9 or 5'8" I'm sure that's average height but the funny thing about celebrities is I always assume they are taller than me. Paul Simon I picked up once and holy jeezus, he looked like a midget with Paul Simons face. I use to pick up everybody. I picked up Tom Clancy the writer once and he couldn't believe I recognized him, but I recognize everybody. Lauren Hutton the one time model I recognized which shocked her but made her feel awesome. I mean seriously, how many people recognize a model from 40 - 50 years ago

Don't be sad because he's gone, be happy because he was here

Well said. A most special man...and we had him for a while. Never to be forgotten. Thank you for all of it David.

Victor Von Doom

I'm really happy I got to share 18 years of my life in the same galaxy as him <3 Even if I only knew about David's music just for 4 of those years

Btw, this was my first song by him when I still didn't know who he was, it feels really good and nostalgic everytime I come back here

He’s back in his Goblin Castle 💓
