In memory of David Bowie

Le 10 janvier 2016, offrant un ultime et exceptionnel album posthume, the Thin White Duke rejoignait le silence stellaire. Jeune homme tourmenté né dans le quartier londonien de Brixton, l'étoile du glam rock laissait une oeuvre magistrale, poétique toujours, en résonance avec l'univers, l'aliénation, la difficulté d'être. David Bowie n'était qu' élégance. Nothing prepared us for his smile

 LYRICS

All of my life I've tried so hard
Doing my best with what I had
Nothing much happened all the same

Something about me stood apart
A whisper of hope that seemed to fail
Maybe I'm born right out of my time
Breaking my life in two

    

Throw me tomorrow, oh oh

Now that I really got a chance

Throw me tomorrow, oh oh

Everything's falling into place

Throw me tomorrow, oh oh

Seeing my past to let it go

 Throw me tomorrow, oh oh

Only for you,  I don't regret

And I was Thursday's child

 

Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, born I was

Thursday's child

 

Sometimes I cry my heart to sleep
Shuffling days and lonesome nights
Sometimes my courage fell to my feet

Lucky old son is in my sky
Nothing prepared me for your smile
Lighting the darkness of my soul
Innocence in your arms

     

 Throw me tomorrow, oh oh

Now that I really got a chance    

Throw me tomorrow, oh oh

Everything's falling into place

Throw me tomorrow, oh oh
Seeing my past to let it go

Throw me tomorrow, oh oh
Only for you I don't regret
And I was Thursday's child


(Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, born I was)
Thursday's child
(Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, born I was)
Thursday's child….
