Rock 'n' Roll Suicide Lyrics

by David Bowie

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
Oh, 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

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
(Wonderful)
Let's turn on and be not alone
(Wonderful)
Gimme your hands 'cause you're wonderful
(Wonderful)
Gimme your hands 'cause you're wonderful
(Wonderful)
Oh, gimme your hands
