Blackstar (Bowie David)

In the villa of Ormen, in the villa of Ormen Stands a solitary candle, ah-ah, ah-ah In the centre of it all, in the centre of it all Your eyes ​ On the day of execution, on the day of execution Only women kneel and smile, ah-ah, ah-ah At the centre of it all, at the centre of it all Your eyes, your eyes ​ Ah-ah-ah Ah-ah-ah ​ In the villa of Ormen, in the villa of Ormen Stands a solitary candle, ah-ah, ah-ah In the centre of it all, in the centre of it all Your eyes Ah-ah-ah ​ Something happened on the day he died Spirit rose a metre and stepped aside Somebody else took his place, and bravely cried (I’m a blackstar, I’m a blackstar) ​ How many times does an angel fall? How many people lie instead of talking tall? He trod on sacred ground, he cried loud into the crowd (I’m a blackstar, I’m a blackstar, I’m not a gangster) ​ I can’t answer why (I’m a blackstar) Just go with me (I’m not a filmstar) I’m-a take you home (I’m a blackstar) Take your passport and shoes (I’m not a popstar) And your sedatives, boo (I’m a blackstar) You’re a flash in the pan (I’m not a marvel star) I’m the great I am (I’m a blackstar) ​ I’m a blackstar, way up, oh honey, I’ve got game I see right so white, so open-heart it’s pain I want eagles in my daydreams, diamonds in my eyes (I’m a blackstar, I’m a blackstar) ​ Something happened on the day he died Spirit rose a metre and stepped aside Somebody else took his place, and bravely cried (I’m a blackstar, I’m a star star, I’m a blackstar) ​ I can’t answer why (I’m not a gangster) But I can tell you how (I’m not a flam star) We were born upside-down (I’m a star star) Born the wrong way ‘round (I’m not a white star) (I’m a blackstar, I’m not a gangster I’m a blackstar, I’m a blackstar I’m not a pornstar, I’m not a wandering star I’m a blackstar, I’m a blackstar) ​ In the villa of Ormen stands a solitary candle Ah-ah, ah-ah At the centre of it all, your eyes On the day of execution, only women kneel and smile Ah-ah, ah-ah At the centre of it all, your eyes, your eyes Ah-ah-ah
