      About "Five Years"

      Lyrics for David Bowie - "Five Years"

      Pushing through the market square, so many mothers sighing
      News had just come over, we had five years left to cry in
      News guy wept and told us, earth was really dying
      Cried so much his face was wet, then I knew he was not lying
      I heard telephones, opera house, favorite melodies
      I saw boys, toys electric irons and T.V.'s
      My brain hurt like a warehouse, it had no room to spare
      I had to cram so many things to store everything in there
      And all the fat-skinny people, and all the tall-short people
      And all the nobody people, and all the somebody people
      I never thought I'd need so many people

      A girl my age went off her head, hit some tiny children
      If the black hadn't a-pulled her off, I think she would have killed them
      A soldier with a broken arm, fixed his stare to the wheels of a Cadillac
      A cop knelt and kissed the feet of a priest, and a queer
      Threw up at the sight of that
      I think I saw you in an ice-cream parlor, drinking milk shakes cold and long
      Smiling and waving and looking so fine, don't think
      You knew you were in this song
      And it was cold and it rained so I felt like an actor
      And I thought of Ma and I wanted to get back there
      Your face, your race, the way that you talk
      I kiss you, you're beautiful, I want you to walk

      We've got five years, stuck on my eyes
      We've got five years, what a surprise
      We've got five years, my brain hurts a lot
      We've got five years, that's all we've got
