Where Are We Now?
David Bowie Lyrics

Had to get the train
From Potsdamer Platz
You never knew that
That I could do that
Just walking the dead

Sitting in the Dschungel
On Nürnberger Straße
A man lost in time
Near KaDeWe
Just walking the dead

Where are we now?
Where are we now?
The moment you know
You know, you know

Twenty thousand people
Cross Bösebrücke
Fingers are crossed
Just in case
Walking the dead

Where are we now?
Where are we now?
The moment you know
You know, you know

As long as there's sun
As long as there's sun
As long as there's rain
As long as there's rain
As long as there's fire
As long as there's fire
As long as there's me
As long as there's you

Worth A Buy

Never been a Bowie fan but the day I heard this it made me cry as it suddenly dawned on me that I can no longer relate to the modern society, I was an 80's teen and I just don't belong in the screwed up world we have today, so sad, take me back 30 years please, it was so much better.

Steven Pettinga

That strange, I cry every time I hear it too. No other Bowie song has moved me so much.


Gen-X struggles the most with this weird world we live in.. We didn't like to be categorized and this hots a nerve with almost everyone i know.
Ii remember a quote i like from Under The Boardwalk IN 1988'ish
"Surf all your life just don't be a Surfer your whole life"

Totally agree with your sincere comments ... Bowie is still an inspiration and his fans are so generous with their comments on my videos ... long live the legend.

Wayne North 'Space Boy'

Totally respect that view ... David got me onto music and I find comfort in playing and singing along ... thanks you YTube for being an enabler.

Wayne North 'Space Boy'

Great So Fab ... I'm inspired by David so I tried a YT original ... Space Boy - Maggie is hurting me ... I'm so grateful.

I was a set carpenter on the Bowie video "Jump". Carthart overalls, work boots. I was talking on the soundstage pay phone in Indonesian (I spent a few years there) and Bowie passed by, stopped, and listened in. He introduced himself when I hung up. He knew some Indonesian as well, and he was genuinely curious about me. We chatted for about 15 minutes until my boss called me away. We talked about Balinese architecture, music (He had a Balinese house dismantled and re-assembled in a location in the Bahamas.) Anyway. Nice guy. Nice memory.

THANK YOU for sharing!!

@Eric Lindsey uh I don't think that that applies here though. It's not as though he "stole" anything from said culture or people, whom he paid to have some of their artwork - which is fine, since it's a mutual transaction. There is a huge difference in appreciating and buying art from a people and doing as white people do generally when they steal blues music, wear dreads or corn rolls, or do as the British museum does. Its not as though he's "taking" anything from the Balinese, as he is giving direct credit to whose art he has purchased, and not white washing it.
