When the Wind Blows
David Bowie Lyrics


There's a full time reservation
Made in a bar at the railway station,
And there's a story, a kind of fable,
On a card at the corner table.
On it is a message; been there some time.
It starts of, "The coffee tasted so fine"

It says, "One day, this may find you,
These few words may remind you.
We sat here together just to pass time;
You said how the coffee tasted so fine."

It goes on to say, "I love you
If you should find this I must hear from you."
It gives a number but the name has faded away.
All that is left are just the words, "Maybe someday"

That's the story and the fable;
Never leave alone from a corner table.
Doo doo doo doo, doo doo doo doo.
Doo doo-doo doo doo-doo doo doo doo doo.

So long child, I'm on my way
And after all is done, after all is done
Don't be down, it's all in the past
Though you may be afraid

So long child, it's awful dark
And I've never felt the sun
I dread to think of when
When the wind blows
When the wind blows
When the wind blows
When the wind blows

Life burns a savage wound, angry and wrong
Trusting a twisted word, you'll run, run away
You'll take it all home
You'll spin a tall tale
But they won't believe you
No matter what you'll say

So long child, it's awful dark
I never felt the sun
I dread to think of when
When the wind blows
When the wind blows
When the wind blows
When the wind blows

Such a strangely upbeat rock song for such a sad movie. 🙁

@Cameron J. Smith, When the wind blows and threads made me anti nuclear weapons and also destroyed any want I had to survive the nuclear exchange and to see the aftermath.

I have never seen two films so soul crushingly depressing and bleak. Don’t get me wrong I love both films but threads left me haunted by what I’ve seen and when the wind blows had me in tears.

Cameron J. Smith

@German Shepherd Its my favourite film but by God is it the most depressing and harrowing thing to watch.

German Shepherd

I have this movie on Blu-ray and when people say, "nothing makes me sad or cry" I say, "have a got a movie for you".

@Veronica Piccinini they mean like the tone is like upbeat rock in terms of the music style not the lyrics.

Veronica Piccinini

JTblcksheep but not even the lyrics are that upbeat

So long child, it's awful dark
And I've never felt the sun
I dread to think of when
When the wind blows
When the wind blows
When the wind blows
When the wind blows

Life burns a savage wound, angry and wrong
Trusting a twisted word, you'll run, run away
You'll take it all home
You'll spin a tall tale
But they won't believe you
No matter what you'll say

So long child, it's awful dark
I never felt the sun
I dread to think of when
When the wind blows
When the wind blows
When the wind blows
When the wind blows
