Bic Runga – Ashes To Ashes lyrics

(David Bowie's cover)

Do you remember a guy that's been
In such an early song
I've heard a rumour from Ground Control
Oh no, don't say it's true

They got a message from the Action Man
"I'm happy, hope you're happy too
I've loved all I've needed love
Sordid details following"

The shrieking of nothing is killing
Just pictures of Jap girls in synthesis and
I ain't got no money and I ain't got no hair
But I'm hoping to quit but this planet it's glowing, glowing, glowing, glowing,
Glowing, glowing, glowing...

Ashes to ashes, fun to funky
We know Major Tom's a junkie
Strung out in heaven's high
Hitting an all-time low

Time and again I tell myself
I'll stay clean tonight
But the little green wheels are following me
Oh no, not again
I'm stuck with a valuable friend
I'm happy, hope you're happy too
One flash of light but no smoking pistol

I've never done good things
I've never done bad things
I've never done anything out of the blue, woh oh oh...
I want an axe to break the ice
I wanna come down right now

Ashes to ashes, fun to funky
We know Major Tom's a junkie
Strung out in heaven's high
Hitting an all-time low

My mama said to get things done
You'd better not mess with Major Tom

My mama said to get things done
You'd better not mess with Major Tom

My mama said to get things done
You'd better not mess with Major Tom

My mama said to get things done
