Song Lyric Sunday: Changes : David Bowie

Helen Espinosa  has been  busy  for  a  while  moving  house! Well we  all know  how  difficult  that  can  be. Yet  every  week  she has  come up  with our  Song Lyric  Sunday challenge. Well  this  week is  the  last  week  that  the  challenge  will come  from her old  residence ! So  I  think  Helen  deserves a  huge cheer

So  this  week  Helen said  :” I’ve decided that our theme for Song Lyric Sunday is to post a song about change.”

Wishing  you  all  the best  with  the  move  Helen, may  you  and  your  family  be  very  happy  in  your  new  home. May  all your  changes  be  good.

Rules and Pingback  here 

Well I  am going  to  go  for  the obvious  because  I  love  it  so  much! I  am  posting  two  versions  of  the  same song  because  one is  an  advert  and  just  so  beautifully  remixed  and it  also  tell it’s  story  so  well  …the  story is  always  key  for me.  the second  is  the  full version of  the  song.

Well of course  it has  to be  David  Bowie  and  Cha cha cha  changes!

and

 

Lyrics Changes  By David Bowie

I still don’t know what I was waiting for
And my time was running wild
A million dead-end streets
And every time I thought I’d got it made
It seemed the taste was not so sweet
So I turned myself to face me
But I’ve never caught a glimpse
Of how the others must see the faker
I’m much too fast to take that test

Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes
(Turn and face the strange)
Ch-ch-changes
Don’t want to be a richer man
Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes
(Turn and face the strange)
Ch-ch-changes
Just gonna have to be a different man
Time may change me
But I can’t trace time

I watch the ripples change their size
But never leave the stream
Of warm impermanence and
So the days float through my eyes
But still the days seem the same
And these children that you spit on
As they try to change their worlds
Are immune to your consultations
They’re quite aware of what they’re going through

Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes
(Turn and face the strange)
Ch-ch-changes
Don’t tell them to grow up and out of it
Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes
(Turn and face the strange)
Ch-ch-changes
Where’s your shame
You’ve left us up to our necks in it
Time may change me
But you can’t trace time

Strange fascination, fascinating me
Changes are taking the pace
I’m going through

Ch-ch-ch-ch-Changes
(Turn and face the strange)
Ch-ch-changes
Oh, look out you rock ‘n rollers
Ch-ch-ch-ch-changes
(Turn and face the strange)
Ch-ch-changes
Pretty soon now you’re gonna get older
Time may change me
But I can’t trace time
I said that time may change me
But I can’t trace time

      It is so easy to do !! My pleasure! I always thought that Super Trouper from ABBA Line” I was sick and tired of everything when I called last night from Glasgow” was “I was sick and tired of everything when I called last night from Tescos ” ( a supermarket chain here in the UK! so we are all guilty! x
