Bowie

Hoy murió uno de los más grandes artistas de la música popular contemporánea


David Bowie murió a los 69 años, como consecuencia de un cáncer. Hace apenas tres días apareció su último disco, Blackstar, una despedida triste y hermosa para un artista inmenso.


In the villa of Ormen, in the villa of Ormen
Stands a solitary candle, ah-ah, ah-ah
In the centre of it all, in the centre of it all
Your eyes.
On the day of execution, on the day of execution
Only women kneel and smile, ah-ah, ah-ah
At the centre of it all, at the centre of it all
Your eyes, your eyes.
Ah, ah, ah...
In the villa of Ormen, in the villa of Ormen
Stands a solitary candle, ah-ah, ah-ah
In the centre of it all, in the centre of it all
Your eyes
Ah, ah, ah...
Something happened on the day he died
Spirit rose a metre and stepped aside
Somebody else took his place, and bravely cried
(I’m a blackstar, I’m a blackstar)
How many times does an angel fall?
How many people lie instead of talking tall?
He trod on sacred ground, he cried loud into the crowd
I’m a blackstar, I’m a blackstar, 
I’m not a gangstar.
I can’t answer why 
I’m a blackstar
Just go with me 
I’m not a filmstar
I’m-a take you home 
I’m a blackstar
Take your passport and shoes 
I’m not a popstar
And your sedatives, boo 
I’m a blackstar
You’re a flash in the pan 
I’m not a marvel star
I’m the Great I Am 
I’m a blackstar.
I’m a blackstar, way up, on money, I’ve got game
I see right, so wide, so open-hearted pain
I want eagles in my daydreams, diamonds in my eyes
I’m a blackstar, I’m a blackstar
Something happened on the day he died
Spirit rose a metre and stepped aside
Somebody else took his place, and bravely cried
I’m a blackstar, I’m a star's star, I’m a blackstar.
I can’t answer why .
I’m not a gangstar
But I can tell you how 
I’m not a film star.
We were born upside-down 
I’m a star's star
Born the wrong way ‘round 
I’m not a white star
I’m a blackstar, I’m not a gangstar
I’m a blackstar, I’m a blackstar
I’m not a pornstar, I’m not a wandering star
I’m a blackstar, I’m a blackstar.

In the villa of Ormen stands a solitary candle
Ah-ah, ah-ah
At the centre of it all, your eyes
On the day of execution, only women kneel and smile
Ah-ah, ah-ah
At the centre of it all, your eyes, your eyes
Ah-ah-ah...
