    Thursday's Child (Bowie/Gabrels)

     

    All of my life I’ve tried so hard
    Doing my best with what I had
    Nothing much happened all the same
     
    Something about me stood apart
    A whisper of hope that seemed to fail
    Maybe I’m born right out of my time
    Breaking my life in two
     
    Throw me tomorrow
    Now that I’ve really got a chance
    Throw me tomorrow
    Everything’s falling into place
    Throw me tomorrow
    Seeing my past to let it go
    Throw me tomorrow
    Only for you I don’t regret
    That I was Thursday’s child
     
    Monday Tuesday Wednesday born I was
    Monday Tuesday Wednesday born I was
    Thursday’s child
     
    Sometime I cried my heart to sleep
    Shuffling days and lonesome nights
    Sometimes my courage fell to me feet
     
    Luck old sun is in my sky
    Nothing prepared me for your smile
    Lighting the darkness of my soul
    Innocence in your arms

    Something In The Air (Bowie/Gabrels)

     

    Your coat and hat are gone
    I really can't look at your little empty shelf
    A ragged teddy bear
    It feels like we never had a chance
    Don't look me in the eye
     
    We lay in each other's arms
    But the room is just an empty space
    I guess we've lived it out
    Something in the air
    We smile too fast then can't think of a thing to say
     
    Lived with the best times
    Left with worst
    Danced with you too long
    Nothing left to save
    Let's take what we can
    I know you'll hold your head up high
    We've raged for the last time
    A place of no return
     
    And there's something in the air
    Something in my eye
    I've danced with you too long
    Yea
    Something in the air
    Something in my eye
     
    Abracadoo, I lose you
    We can't avoid the clash, the big mistake
    Now we're gonna pay and pay
    Sentence of our lives
    Can't believe I'm asking you to go
     
    We used what we could
    To get the things we want
    But we lost each other on the way
    I guess you know I never wanted anyone more than you
     
    Lived all our best times
    Left with the worst
    I've danced with you too long
    Say what you will
    There's something in the air
    Raged for the last time
    But I know you'll hold your head up high
    There's nothing we have to say
    There's nothing in our eyes
     
    But there's something in air
    Something in my eye
    I've danced with you too long
    Something I have to say
    I've danced with you too long
    Danced with you too long
    Danced with you too long
    Something in the air
    Something in the air

    Survive (Bowie/Gabrels)

     

    Oh my, naked eyes
    I should have kept you
    I should have tried
    I should have been a wiser kind of guy
    I miss you
     
    Give me wings
    Give me space
    Give me money for a change of face
    Those noisy rooms
    And passion pants
    I loved you
     
    Where's the morning in my life
    Where's the sense in staying right
    Who said 'time is on my side'
    I've got ears and eyes and nothing in my life
    But I'll survive your naked eyes
    I'll survive
     
    You alone across a floor
    You and me and nothing more
    You're the great mistake I never made
    I never lied to you I hated when you lied
    And I'll survive your naked eyes
    I'll survive
     
    Beatle boys
    All snowy white
    Razzle dazzle clubs every night
    Wish I'd sent a valentine
    I love you
     
    But I'll survive
    Naked eyes
    I'll survive

    If I'm Dreaming My Life (Bowie/Gabrels)

     

    Was she never there
    Was she ever
    Was it air she breathed
    At the wrong time
     
    All the flowers so
    From the gallery
    With the hymns of night
    Singing come to me
    At the wrong time
    On the wrong day
    All the lights are fading now
    If I'm dreaming my life
     
    Just one living chance
    When the mother sighs
    When the father steps aside
    At the wrong time
     
    Was she never here
    Was she ever
    Was it air she breathed
    At the wrong time
    On the wrong day
    All the lights are fading now
    If I'm dreaming my life
    If I'm dreaming my life
     
    Was she ever
    Was she ever here
     
    If I'm dreaming my life
    If I'm dreaming my life away
     
    Dreaming my life
    Dreaming my
    Dreaming my
    Dreaming my
    Dreaming my life
    Dreaming my life away
    Oh-oh
     
    Dreaming my life
    Dreaming my
    Dreaming my life away
    Oh-oh
     
    Dreaming my life
    Dreaming my
    Dreaming my life away
    Oh-oh
     
    Dreaming my life
    Dreaming my
    Dreaming my life away

    Seven (Bowie/Gabrels)

     

    I forgot what my father said
    I forgot what he said
    I forgot what my mother said
    As we lay upon your bed
    A city full of flowers
    A city full of rain
    I got seven days to live my life
    Or seven ways to die
     
    I forgot what my brother said
    I forgot what he said
    I don't regret anything at all
    I remember how we wept
    On a bridge of violent people
    I was small enough to cry
    I got seven days to live my life
    Or seven ways to die
     
    Hold my face before you
    Still my trembling heart
    Seven days to live my life
    Or seven ways to die
     
    The gods forget they made me
    So I forgot them too
    I listen to their shadows
    I play among their graves
    My heart was never broken
    My patience never tried
    I got seven days to live my life
    Or seven ways to die
    Seven days to live my life
    Or seven ways to die
     
    Seven seven seven
    Seven seven seven
    Seven seven seven

    What's Really Happening (Bowie/Gabrels/Grant)

     

    What's Really Happening
     
    Grown inside a plastic box
    Micro thoughts and safety locks
    Hearts become outdated clocks
     
    Ticking in your mind
    Now it's time to close our eyes
    Now it's tme to say goodbye
    Now it's time to face the lie
    That we'd never cry
     
    All the clouds are made of glass
    And they're slowly sinking
    Falling like the shattered past
    Were we built to last?

    The Pretty Things Are Going To Hell (Bowie/Gabrels)

     

    What to wear
    What to say
    What to do on a sunny day
    Who to phone
    Who to fight
    Who to dance with on a Sunday night
     
    I'm reaching the very edge y'know
    Reaching the very edge
    Going to the other side this time
    Reaching the very edge
     
    You're still breathing but you don't know why
    Life's a bit and sometimes you die
    You're still breathing but you just can't tell
    Don't hold your breath but the pretty things are going to hell
     
    I am a drug I am a dragon
    I am the best jazz you've ever seen
    I am a dragon I am the sky
    I am the blood at the corner of your eye
    I found the secrets I found gold
    I find you out before you grow old
    I find you out before you grow old
     
    What is eternal
    What is damned
    What is clay
    And what is sand
    Who to dis
    And who to truss
    Who to listen to
    And who to suss
     
    I'm reaching the very edge y'know
    Reaching the very edge
    Going to the other side this time
    Reaching the very edge
     
    You're still breathing but you don't know why
    Life's a bit and sometimes you die
    You're still breathing but you just can't tell
    Don't hold your breath but the pretty things are going to hell
     
    I am a dragon I am a drug
    I am the best jazz you've ever heard
    I am a dragon I am the sky
    I am the blood at the corner of your eye
    I found the secrets I found gold
    I find you out before you grow old
    I find you out before you grow old
     
    The pretty things are going to hell
    They wore it out but they wore it well
     
    The pretty things are going to hell
    They wore it out but they wore it well
     
    The pretty things are going to hell
    They wore it out but they wore it well
     
    The pretty things are going to hell
    They wore it out but they wore it well
     
    You're still breathing but you don't know why
    Life's a bit and sometimes you die
    You're still breathing but you just can't tell
    Don't hold your breath but the pretty things are going to hell
    Still breathing but you don't know why
    Life's a bit and sometimes you die
    Still breathing but you just can't tell
    Don't hold your breath but the pretty things are going to hell

    New Angels Of Promise (Bowie/Gabrels)

     

    New angels of promise
    We despair
    We are the dead dreams
    We take the blame
    Take us to the edge of time
    Take us to the edge of time
    We are the fabulous lovers
    I am a blind man, she is my eyes
     
    Omikron
    You didn't feel us coming
    In this lonely crowd
    It's always time
     
    New angels of promise
    We despise
    Don't fall apart now
    We are the silent ones
    Take us to the edge of time
    Take us to the edge of time
    We are the tabular lovers
    We listen to the storm
     
    Omikron
    You didn't feel us coming
    In this lonely crowd
    It's always time

    The Dreamers (Bowie/Gabrels)

     

    Black eyed ravens
    They spiral down
    They tilt his head back
    To the flame filled sunset
    Raise their guns high
    As the darken falls
    These are the days boys
     
    Shallow man
    Shallow man...and they
    Eats in the doorway
    With his head inclined
    And he's always in decline
    No-one heals anymore
    So he shrinks as they ride
    Under vermilion sky
     
    So it goes
    Just a searcher
    A lonely soul
    The last of the dreamers
     
    Shallow man
    Shallow man
    Speaks to the shadows
    Moves his trembling hands
    And he's always a little late
    For the dawning of the day
     
    So it goes
    Just a searcher
    Lonely soul
    The last of the dreamers
