The Stars (Are Out Tonight) Lyrics

by David Bowie

Stars are never sleeping
Dead ones and the living

We live closer to the earth
Never to the heavens
The stars are never far away
Stars are out tonight

They watch us from behind their shades
Brigitte, Jack, Kate and Brad
From behind their tinted window stretch
Gleaming like blackened sunshine

Stars are never sleeping
Dead ones and the living

Waiting for the first move
Satyrs and their child wives
Waiting for the last move
Soaking up our primitive world

Stars are never sleeping
Dead ones and the living

Their jealousys spilling down
The stars must stick together
We will never be rid of these stars
But I hope they live forever

And they know just what we do
That we toss and turn at night
Theyre waiting to make their moves
But the stars are out tonight

Here they are upon the stairs
Sexless and not aware
They are stars, theyre dying for you
But I hope they live forever

They burn you with their radiant smiles
Trap you with their beautiful eyes
Theyre broke and shamed or drunk or scared
But I hope they live forever

Their jealousys spilling down
The stars must stick together
We will never be rid of these stars
But I hope they live forever

And they know just what we do
That we toss and turn at night
Theyre waiting to make their moves on us
But the stars are out tonight

The stars are out tonight
The stars are out tonight
