“Didn't know what time it was, the lights were low I leaned back on my radio Some cat was layin' down some rock 'n' roll, "Lotta soul," he said, Then the loud sound did seem to fade Came back like a slow voice on a wave of phase, That weren't no DJ, that was hazy cosmic jive"
"There's a starman waiting in the sky He'd like to come and meet us But he thinks he'd blow our minds There's a starman waiting in the sky He's told us not to blow it 'Cause he knows it's all worthwhile
He told me Let the children lose it Let the children use it Let all the children boogie"
"I had to phone someone, so I picked on you Hey, that's far out, so you heard him, too Switch on the TV, we may pick him up on Channel Two Look out your window, I can see his light If we can sparkle, he may land tonight Don't tell your papa or he'll get us locked up in fright"
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 Ohhh how how how, youre a rock n roll suicide
Youre too old to lose it, too young to choose it And the clocks waits so patiently on your song You walk past a cafe but you dont eat when youve lived too long Oh, no, no, no, youre a rock n roll suicide
Chev brakes are snarling as you stumble across the road But the day breaks instead so you hurry home Dont let the sun blast your shadow Dont let the milk float ride your mind Youre so natural - religiously unkind
Oh no love! youre not alone Youre watching yourself but youre too unfair You got your head all tangled up but if I could only Make you care Oh no love! youre not alone No matter what or who youve been No matter when or where youve seen All the knives seem to lacerate your brain Ive had my share, Ill help you with the pain Youre not alone
Just turn on with me and youre not alone Lets turn on with me and youre not alone (wonderful) Lets turn on and be not alone (wonderful) Gimme your hands cause youre wonderful (wonderful) Gimme your hands cause youre wonderful (wonderful) Oh gimme your hands.
