Love Is Lost – The Words

“Oh, what have you done?”

Continuing our posting of the lyrics for The Next Day, here are the words for Love Is Lost.

Stay tuned for more lyrics and further glimpses of Jonathan Barnbrook‘s album artwork, both here on DavidBowie.com and on the David Bowie (Official) Facebook page.


Love Is Lost (David Bowie)

It’s the darkest hour, you’re twenty two
The voice of youth, the hour of dread
The darkest hour and your voice is new
Love is lost, lost is love

Your country's new
Your friends are new
Your house and even your eyes are new
Your maid is new and your accent too
But your fear is as old as the world

Say goodbye to the thrills of life
Where love was good, no love was bad
Wave goodbye to the life without pain
Say hello
You’re a beautiful girl

Say hello to the lunatic men
Tell them your secrets
They’re like the grave
Oh, what have you done?
Oh, what have you done?
Love is lost, lost is love

You know so much, it’s making you cry
You refuse to talk but you think like mad
You’ve cut out your soul and the face of thought
Oh, what have you done?
Oh, what have you done?

Valentine’s Day - The words

“He’s got something to say...”

We‘re on to track #6 from The Next Day and so here we have the lyrics for the delightful and deliciously uplifting Valentine’s Day.

Obviously we'll be posting more lyrics but it won‘t be long before you‘ve had your own glimpses of Jonathan Barnbrook‘s complete album artwork one way or another, particularly with the album being released in the following territories tomorrow.

March 8:
Australia/New Zealand
Germany
Switzerland
Austria
Belgium
Czech Republic
Finland
Netherlands
Ireland
Sweden
Turkey Digital (physical one week later)

Some of you will already have your hands on a copy, including the downunders from the future, which is lucky for you as your iTunes stream will be turned off sometime around now. http://smarturl.it/DBsplash

And so, on to the matter in hand, the words to Valentine’s Day


Valentine’s Day (David Bowie)

Valentine told me who’s to go
Feelings he’s treasured most of all
The teachers and the football star
It’s in his tiny face
It’s in his scrawny hand
Valentine told me so
He’s got something to say
It’s Valentine’s Day

The rhythm of the crowd
Teddy and Judy down
Valentine sees it all
He’s got something to say
It’s Valentine’s Day

Valentine told me how he’d feel
If all the world were under his heel
Or stumbling through the mall
It’s in his tiny face
It’s in his scrawny hand
Valentine knows it all
He’s got something to say
It’s Valentine’s Day

Valentine Valentine
Valentine Valentine

It’s in his scrawny hand
It’s in his icy heart
It’s happening today
Valentine Valentine

If You Can See Me words plus V&A footwear

“I could wear your new blue shoes...”

With this track we’re half way through The Next Day and on to the words for If You Can See Me.

Though many of you have them all now, we'll continue posting more lyrics for now.

Pretty much all of Jonathan Barnbrook‘s album cover artwork has been revealed one way or another, not least of all on his blog. http://smarturl.it/jbTNDblog

So we decided we would try and post some vaguely-relevant-to-the-lyrics images from the upcoming David Bowie is Exhibition at The V&A. http://smarturl.it/vamDBis

Pictured today are the blue, blue, ’lectric blue boots that Bowie wore for Mick Rock’s Pin-Ups album cover session.

I guess we all presumed they were shoes actually, but you can view them here for the first time in all their unhidden glory. And so, the words...


If You Can See Me (David Bowie)

If you can see me I can see you

I could wear your new blue shoes
I should wear your old red dress
And walk to the crossroads
So take this knife
And meet me across the river

Just shoots and ladders and this is the kiss
American anna fantasticalsation
From nowhere to nothing
And I go way back

Children swarm like thousands of bugs
Towards the lights the beacons above the hill
The stars to the West, the South, the North
And to the East

Now you could say I’ve got a gift of sorts
A fear of rear windows and swinging doors
A love of violence a dread of sighs
If you can see me I can see you
If you can see me I can see you

I have seen these bairns wave their fists at God
Swear to destroy the beasts stamping the ground
In their excitement for tomorrow

I could wear your new blue shoes
I should wear your old red dress
And walk to the crossroads
So take this knife
And meet me across the river

I will take your lands and all that lays beneath
The dust of cold flowers prison of dark ashes
I will slaughter your kind who descend from belief
I am the spirit of greed a lord of theft
I’ll burn all your books and the problems they make
If you can see me I can see you
If you can see me

David Bowie (Official)

I’d Rather Be High - The Words

“I’m seventeen my looks can prove it”

Actually, the teenage David Jones is only sixteen in this picture, a promotional shot taken in 1963 during a Kon-rads’ photo session with Roy Ainsworth.

OK, so we’re on to [i]I’d Rather Be High[i], track number eight from The Next Day and the story of a young man who’d prefer to be in the shoes of the teenager pictured here than the ones he’s in.

As we said yesterday, we’ve decided to try and illustrate each set of lyrics with images from the upcoming David Bowie is Exhibition at The V&A.


I’d Rather Be High (David Bowie)

Nabokov is sun-licked now
Upon the beach at Grunewald
Brilliant and naked just
The way that authors look

Clare and Lady Manners drink
Until the other cows go home
Gossip till their lips are bleeding
Politics and all

I’d rather be high
I’d rather be flying
I’d rather be dead
Or out of my head
Than training these guns on those men in the sand
I’d rather be high

The Thames was black, the tower dark
I flew to Cairo, find my regiment
City’s full of generals
And generals full of shit

I stumble to the graveyard and I
Lay down by my parents, whisper
Just remember duckies
Everybody gets got

I’d rather be high
I’d rather be flying
I’d rather be dead
Or out of my head
Than training these guns on those men in the sand
I’d rather be high

I’m seventeen my looks can prove it
I’m so afraid that I will lose it
I’d rather smoke and phone my ex
Be pleading for some teenage sex,
Yeah

I’d rather be high
I’d rather be flying
I’d rather be dead
Or out of my head
Than training these guns on the men in the sand
I’d rather be high

Boss Of Me - The Words

I look to the stars”

And you though we posted a young picture of David Jones yesterday. In this detail from a contact sheet of 48 different images, the baby Bowie is pictured at just ten months old.

The wee nipper is undeniably looking to the stars in the selected frames (well, 1947 was the year of the Roswell incident), and that’s our tenuous link to today’s lyric, Boss Of Me, track number nine from The Next Day.

As we’ve suggested previously, we will endeavour to provide a daily marriage of lyrics from The Next Day to images from the upcoming David Bowie is Exhibition at The V&A.


Boss Of Me (David Bowie/Gerry Leonard)

Tell me when you’re sad
I wanna make it cool again
I know you’re feeling bad
Tell me when you’re cool again

Who’d have ever thought of it
Who’d have ever dreamed
That a small town girl like you
Would be the boss of me

We fly through the night
The tears on your lips
Life has your mind and soul
It spins on your hips

Who’d have ever thought of it
Who’d have ever dreamed

Who’d have ever thought of it
Who’d have ever dreamed
That a small town girl like you
Would be the boss of me
Would be the boss of me
Would be the boss of me

You look at me and you weep
For the free blue sky
I look to the stars
As they flicker and float in your eyes
And under these wings of steel
The small town dies

Who’d have ever thought of it
Who’d have ever dreamed

Who’d have ever thought of it
Who’d have ever dreamed
That a small town girl like you
Would be the boss of me

Who’d have ever thought of it
Who’d have ever dreamed
That a small town girl like you
Would be the boss of me
Would be the boss of me
Would be the boss of me

“Dancing Out In Space”

Today’s lyrics are track number ten from The Next Day, Dancing Out In Space.

As you’ve no doubt noticed by now, we’ve illustrated each set of words with vaguely connected images from the upcoming David Bowie is Exhibition at The V&A.

Today is a detail from the 1979 jumpsuit designed by Willie Brown with a graphic pattern inspired by Le Corbusier.

The outfit was worn by Bowie for his 'future nostalgic' performance of Space Oddity in December 1979 on NBC's Dick Clark’s Salute to the Seventies.

Stills from the performance were used for various picture sleeve releases for Alabama Song/Space Oddity in February 1980.


Dancing Out In Space

Cutting through the water
Hands upon the ghost
To the city of solid iron
Through the kingdom of the ghost
Send your friend away now
Let him sail back home tonight

Something like religion
Dancing face to face
Something like a drowning
Dancing out in space

No-one here can see you
Dancing face to face
No-one here can beat you
Dancing out in space

Silent as Georges Rodenbach
Mist and silhouette
Girl, you move like water
You’ve got stars upon your head
You’ve got my name and number
You’ve got to take the floor

Something like religion
Dancing face to face
Something like a drowning
Dancing out in space

No-one here can see you
Dancing face to face
No-one here can beat you
Dancing out in space

Dancing face to face
Dancing out in space

Dancing face to face
Dancing out in space

Dancing face to face
Dancing out in space

ESSAI DE TRADUCTION - THE DIRTY BOYS


Les salopards 




Un beau foutoir est présent sur une route déserte 
Je vais te tirer de là
Nous irons à Finchley Fair ( NDT : un carnaval qui se déroule dans un parc à Londres   )


Je vais t'acheter un chapeau à plumes
Je vais voler une batte de cricket
Eclater quelques fenêtres, faire du bruit
Nous nous casserons avec les salopards


Quand le soleil se couche
Que le soleil se couche et que les dés sont jetés
Quand les dés sont jetés et que tu n'as plus le choix
Nous nous casserons avec les salopards


Nous devenons tous fous et nous te voulons tous
Les mecs et moi nous avons tous soufferts (?)
Tu dois apprendre à tenir ta langue
ce n'est pas la lune c'est un soleil brûlant


Quand le soleil se couche 
Quand le soleil se couche et que les dés sont jetés
Quand les dés sont jetés et que tu n'as plus le choix
Nous nous casserons avec les salopards

Ah c'est possible, mon explication est une piste c'est pas forcément la bonne réponse.

HOW DOES THE GRASS GROW?

There's a graveyard by the station
Where the girls wear nylon skirts and
Sandals from Hungary
The boys ride their Riga 1's
Upon the little hill
Such sadness and grief
The trees die standing
That's where we made our trysts
And struggled with our guns
Would you still love me
If the clocks could go backwards
The girls would fill with blood and
The grass would be green again
Remember the dead
They were so great
Some of them
Ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya
Ya ya ya ya ya ya
How does the grass grow
Blood blood blood
Ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya
Ya ya ya ya ya ya
Where do the boys lie
Mud mud mud
How does the grass grow
Blood blood blood
But I lived a blind life
A white face in prison
But you made a life out of nothing
Now I ride my black horse
I miss you more
Than you'll ever ever know
Waiting with my red eyes
And my stone heart
Ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya
Ya ya ya ya ya ya
How does the grass grow
Blood blood blood
Ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya
Ya ya ya ya ya ya
Where do the boys lie
Mud mud mud
How does the grass grow
Blood blood blood
I gaze in defeat
At the stars in the night
The light in my life burnt away
There will be no tomorrow
Then you sigh in your sleep
And meaning returns with the day
Ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya ya
Ya ya ya ya ya ya
Where do the boys lie
Mud mud mud
How does the grass grow
Blood blood blood



(YOU WILL) SET THE WORLD ON FIRE

Midnight in the Village
Seeger lights the candles
from Bitter End to Gaslight
Baez leaves the stage
Ochs takes notes
When the black girl and guitar
Burn together hot in rage
You've got what it takes
You say too much
You will set the world babe
You will set the world on fire
I can work the scene babe
I can see the magazines
I can hear the nation
I can hear the nation cry
You will set the world babe
You will set the world on fire
You will set it on fire
Kennedy would kill
For the lines that you've written
Van Ronk says to Bobby
She's the next real thing
Crouched in the half light
Screaming like a banshee
You're in the boat, babe
We're in the water
You say too much
You will set the world babe
You will set the world on fire
I can work the scene babe
I can see the magazines
I can hear the nation
I can hear the nation cry
You will set the world babe
You will set the world on fire
You will set it on fi re



YOU FEEL SO LONELY YOU COULD DIE

No-one ever saw you
Moving through the dark
Leaving slips of paper
Somewhere in the park
Hidden from your friends
Stealing all they knew
Lovers thrown in airless rooms
Then vile rewards for you
But I'm gonna tell
Yes I've gotta tell
Gotta tell the things you'Ve said
When you're talking in the dark
And I'm gonna tell the things you've done
When you're walking through the park
Some night on the thriller's street
Will come the silent gun
You've got a dangerous heart
You stole their trust, their moon, their sun
There'll come assassin's needle
On a crowded train
I'll bet you feel so lonely
You could die
Buildings crammed with people
Landscape filled with wrath
Grey concrete city
Rain has wet the street
I want to see you clearly
Before you close the door
A room of bloody history
You made sure of that
I can see you as a corpse
Hanging from a beam
I can read you like a book
I can feel you falling
I hear you moaning in your room
Oh see if I care
Oh please make it soon
Walls have got you cornered
You've got the blues my friend
And people don't like you
But you will leave without a sound, without an end
Oblivion shall own you
Death alone shall love you
I hope you feel so lonely
You could die



HEAT

Then we saw Mishima's dog
Trapped between the rocks
Blocking the waterfall
The songs of dust
The world would end
The night was always falling
The peacock in the snow
And I tell myself
I don't know who I am
And I tell myself
I don't know who I am
My father ran the prison
My father ran the prison
I can only love you
By hating him more
That's not the truth
It's too big a word
He believed
That love is theft
Love and whores
The theft of love
And l tell myself
I don't know who I am
And l tell myself
I don't know who I am
My father ran the prison
My father ran the prison
But I am a seer
I am a liar
I am a seer
And I am a liar
My father ran the prison
My father ran the prison



SO SHE

For the priceless man
Who suffers gloom
So slow
Eyes were stolen
For her
A sleeping sky
Takes the moon
So slow
I would slide away
Further out to sea
Further out to sea
So she
She saw me smile
Feeling like
I'd never been
She saw me smile
Feeling like l'd never been
In love
Feeling like I'd never been
The only one and all alone
The only one and all alone



PLAN

Instrumental



I'LL TAKE YOU THERE

Today, today is the 1st of May
Everything around us
Everything a lie
Your hearts beating fast
As we race through the dark
Past the really good people
Who do what they're told
What will be my name
In the USA?
Hold my hand and
I'll take you there
Who will I become
In the USA?
Hold my hand and
I'll take you there
Sophie and Lev are running away
These are the days
The days of gloom
Lev can't smile and Sophie can't sing
A mile to the future
Where tomorrow is king
What will be my name
In the USA?
Hold my hand and
I'll take you there
Who will I become
In the USA?
Hold my hand and
I'll take you there
I don't need to know
Know where you are
Only that you are
Safe in this world
Then I'll be content
Get on with my life
Eat, drink and steep
Look up at the stars
What will be my name
In the USA?
Hold my hand and
I'll take you there
Who will I become
In the USA?
Hold my hand and
I'll take you there



GOD BLESS THE GIRL

Jackie loves her work
And her work is loved
For there is no other

She says God has given me a job
Jackie loves her work
There is no other

Jackie's aiming for the stars
But landed on the clouds
There is no other

Sitting in her corner
Too afraid to run away
Like a slave without chains
Wonder turns to danger
Spring turns to winter
God bless the girl
But I will treasure, treasure every single moment
God bless the girl

Fire turns to water
Light becomes darkness
God bless the girl
And
*I don't want to hurt you
Just wanna have some fun
God bless the girl*

God bless the girl
Yeah
*~* Repeat

You don't need another friend
You just need a reason
There is no other

Jackie loves her work
And her work is loved
For there is no other

Wonder turns to danger
Spring turns to winter
God bless the girl
But I will always treasure, treasure every single mome
God bless the girl

Fire turns to water
And light becomes darkness
God bless the girl
*~* Repeat
God bless the girl

God bless the girl (God bless the girl)
*~* Repeat
(God bless the girl)
Years pass so swiftly

God bless the girl (God bless the girt)
Years pass so swiftly

God bless the girl (God bless the girl) ...

Une piste très intéressante pour ce mystérieux "Tobacco road" de "Dirty boys".


Dans la série "Les Soprano" ( élue meilleure série de tous les temps par les scénaristes d'Hollywood, si vous ne connaissez pas encore, précipitez-vous, c'est du Scorsese sur 80 épisodes ),
dans la saison 1, la mère de Tony Soprano se rend au cimetière de Newark ( New-Jersey ).
Là elle déblaye la tombe de son défunt époux où traîne différents objets et énervée elle a cette réflexion :
"It's something like Tobacco Road !"


Ce que les traducteurs français ont traduit par : "C'est le chantier ici !"


Comme Newark se trouve près de New-york , peut-être que c'est une expression typiquement new-yorkaise.




Dans ce cas-là le début de Dirty Boys se traduirait par quelquechose comme :


"Il y a un beau foutoir sur une route déserte,
Je vais te tirer de là"

Breizh a semble-t-il trouvé la bonne réponse.
"Tobacco road" ferait référence à un film de John Ford et désignerait dans le langage courant un bled paumé
