about

One morning while we were listening to records, my son thought he heard David Bowie saying one thing when it was really another but I liked what he heard so I wrote this down. Later, when the maestro “rose a meter and stepped aside” we played this song for him. I had thought it was for some other people but then I realized none of it would have happened without him. We attended the Holy Holy wake in the spring.

lyrics

I’m driving a stolen car
You don’t know me but I know who you are
driving past in a blur
in a comet like a meteor
in search of the Goddess in this mess
swallowing hard and spitting out bitterness
I was in love with you
but I didn’t know how to be as free as you are
I’m still living the dream
You got to die and tell me why
Sometimes it makes me want to scream
when I all the thieves in your temple
lying through their teeth on the TV screen
I must remember to eat
I must remember to sleep
I must remember to breathe
Remember to make love
Remember to make time for friends
Remember to take time to be alone
Remember there’s so much that we don’t know
Remember remember
Remember what gives us life
Remember what gives us hope
Remember what gives us courage
Remember what gives our hearts joy
Remember what gives inspiration
Remember what gives us a reason
to get out of bed in the morning
to get through a day without crying
to get to the night in one piece
to remember what gives us peace
Remember to love what we cannot stand
Forget anyone that stands in the way of your plans
I’m playing a pink guitar
You don’t know them but they know who you are
Last night the light we saw
was a million years old just like you a shining star
Remember to credit the source
Go for a ride on your horse
Remember may the force be within you but of course
may you be without force
Remember what breaks
Remember what it takes to live
Remember what it takes
to remember what gives
what gives
what gives
You are an avatar
