m and m

I think I saw you in an ice-cream parlour, drinking milk shakes cold and long
Smiling and waving and looking so fine, don't think
you knew you were in this song
And it was cold and it rained so I felt like an actor
And I thought of Ma and I wanted to get back there
Your face, your race, the way that you talk
I miss you, you're beautiful, I want you to walk- from bowie's 'five years'

i don't ever need to even try figuring out bowie lyrics. as a writer he has always moved me in the right direction. his screen persona has the same affect on me. i just 'get' him. i feel the same way when i see snaps of mick and marianne faithfull. they were together for five years which can seem like a blink or forever.
