Rock N Roll Suicide

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  you're a rock'n roll suicide
      You're too old to lose it  too young to choose it
And the clock waits so patiently on your song
   You walk past a cafe but you don't eat when you 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 floats ride your mind                 EADGBE
F D9 G7 (D9 = xx4210)
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 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 to lacerate your brain
I've had my share  I'll help you with the pain  you're not alone
                  Just turn on me  you're
 not alone          let's turn on me and be
you're not alone gimme your hands
you're wonderful gimme your hands
you're wonderful gimme your hands
