      About "My Death"

      Lyrics for David Bowie - "My Death"

      My death waits like an old roué
      So confident I'll go his way
      Whistle to him and the passing time
      My death waits like a bible truth
      At the funeral of my youth
      Weep loud for that and the passing time
      My death waits like a witch at night
      As surely as our love is bright
      Let's not think about the passing time

      [Chorus:]
      But what ever lies behind the door
      There is nothing much to do
      Angel or devil, I don't care
      For in front of that door, there is you

      My death waits like a beggar blind
      Who sees the world through an unlit mind
      Throw him a dime for the passing time
      My death waits there between your thighs
      Your cool fingers will close my eyes
      Let's not think of that and the passing time
      My death waits to allow my friends
      A few good times before it ends
      So let's drink to that and the passing time

      [Chorus:]

      My death waits there among the leaves
      In magicians' mysterious sleeves
      Rabbits and dogs and the passing time
      My death waits there among the flowers
      Where the blackest shadow, blackest shadow cowers
      Let's pick lilacs for the passing time
      My death waits there in a double bed
      Sails of oblivion at my head
      So pull up the sheets against the passing time

      [Chorus:]
