Wishful Beginnings Lyrics

by David Bowie

Cruising around me
The flames burn my body
Wishful beginnings
Does this remind them again and again

You're a sorry little girl, you're a sorry little girl
Please hide for the pain must feel like snow
You're a sorry little girl
Sorry little girl

Please hide from the kiss and the bite
Shame burns
Breathing in, breathing out
Breathing in, only doubt

The pain must feel like snow
I'm no longer your golden boy
Sorry, little girl
I'm sorry, little girl

The pain must feel like snow
There you go, cover me, cover me
We flew on the wings
We were deep in the dead air
And this one will never go down

We had such wishful beginnings
But we lived unbearable lives
I'm sorry, little girl, sorry, little girl
So, so sorry, little girl

The pain must feel like snow
There you go
There you go
