Rock 'n' Roll Suicide
David Bowie Lyrics


Time takes a cigarette, puts it in your mouth
You pull on your finger, then another finger, then your cigarette
The wall-to-wall is calling, it lingers, then you forget
Ohh how how how, you're a rock 'n' roll suicide

You're too old to lose it, too young to choose it
And the clocks waits so patiently on your song
You walk past a cafe but you don't eat when you've lived too long
Oh, no, no, no, you're a rock 'n' roll suicide
Chevy brakes are snarling as you stumble across the road
But the day breaks instead so you hurry home
Don't let the sun blast your shadow
Don't let the milk float ride your mind
You're so natural religiously unkind

Oh no love, you're not alone
You're watching yourself but you're too unfair
You got your head all tangled up but if i could only
Make you care
Oh no love, you're not alone
No matter what or who you've been
No matter when or where you've seen
All the knives seem to lacerate your brain
I've had my share, I'll help you with the pain
You're not alone

Just turn on with me and you're not alone
Let's turn on with me and you're not alone (wonderful)
Gimme your hands 'cause you're wonderful (wonderful)
Gimme your hands 'cause you're wonderful (wonderful)
Oh gimme your hands

Time takes a cigarette, puts it in your mouth
You pull on your finger, then another finger, then your
cigarette
The wall-to-wall is calling, it lingers, then you forget
Ohhh, you're a rock 'n' roll suicide

You're too old to lose it, too young to choose it

And the clock waits so patiently on your song
You walk past a cafe but you don't eat when you've lived
too long
Oh, no, no, no, you're a rock 'n' roll suciide

Chev brakes are snarling as you stumble across the road

But the day breaks instead so you hurry home
Don't let the sun blast your shadow
Don't let the milk float ride your mind
You're so natural - religiously unkind

Oh no love! you're not alone
You're watching yourself but you're too unfair
You got your head all tangled up but if I could only make you care
Oh no love! you're not alone
No matter what or who you've been
No matter when or where you've seen
All the knives seem to lacerate your brain
I've had my share, I'll help you with the pain
You're not alone

Just turn on with me and you're not alone
Let's turn on with me and you're not alone
Let's turn on and be not alone
Gimme your hands cause you're wonderful [x2]
Oh gimme your hands.

Oh no love, you're not alone
You're watching yourself but you're too unfair
You got your head all tangled up but if I could only make you care
Oh no love, you're not alone
No matter what or who you've been
No matter when or where you've seen
All the knives seem to lacerate your brain
I've had my share, I'll help you with the pain
You're not alone!

Thank you for the music, David Bowie.
Thanks for everything.

Damn everyone's making me cry


But through my childhood I loved him, but. I found him from the labyrinth (my favourite movie)
A lot of people are surprised when they find out I like David Bowie



Why? I'm a 10 year old, I got 2 of my friends to like him (not by force, one of them I showed life on mars? (because mum says its my song) and I wanted to show her it one the other friend added life on mars? To their spotify for me (I didn't ask them too) and they turned out to like it)



But when I woke up ready for school I went down stairs and the tv said "David Bowie dead after 18 month cancer fight" and I didn't have my glasses on at the time so I thought it was my sight I went up closer to find it wasn't my eyes





I was devastated. But





I send all hugs to you!

About five years ago I tried to kill myself and came close to it. I was hospitalized for a short time and once I was released I remember sitting on the floor of my room crying when my dad heard me and put on this song. I laughed through the tears as he took my hand and we danced together to it. This song means so much to me and so does Bowie. R.I.P and thank you for everything.

I know I'm late but I'm sorry to here that. I understand how tough it can be but finding things that you love to help you along the way is one of the best methods to cope. I wish you the best. ❤️

Normally I don't care just because a famous person dies. But this cat just gave so much. Thank you, David.

same here, I usually think it's corny and phony sentimentalism when people care about celebrity deaths, but with Bowie I did care so maybe I'm too harshly judging everyone else ;) but his music really helped define the teenage consciousness shaping of several generations
