David Bowie – Soul Love

Another underrated gem from David. I learned of this from the Soviet compilation vinyl.

Notes by JazzDays

David Bowie is awesome and Soul Love is an underrated song but it’s one of my favorites!
Artist: David Bowie
Song: Soul Love
Album: The Rise and Fall of Ziggy Stardust and the Spiders from Mars (1972)
Info: A video i made late one night when i couldn’t sleep. I used clips from a few mvs and concerts. I also tried lip-syncing some parts but failed. lol

Lyrics

Stone love – she kneels before the grave
A brave son – who gave his life to see the slogan
That hovers between the headstone and her eyes
For they penetrate her grieving

New love – a boy and girl they talking
New words – that only they can share in
New words – a love so strong it tears their hearts
To sleep – through the fleeting hours of morning
Love is careless in its choosing – sweeping over cross a baby
Love descends on those defenseless
Idiot love will spark the fusion
Inspirations have I none – just to touch the flaming dove
All I have is my love of love – and love is not loving

Soul love – the priest that tastes the word and
Told of love – and how my God on high is
All love – though reaching up my loneliness evolves
By the blindness that surrounds him

Love is careless in its choosing – sweeping over cross a baby
Love descends on those defenseless
Idiot love will spark the fusion
Inspirations have I none – just to touch the flaming dove
All I have is my love of love – and love is not loving

Lai lai la-la la-la la-la la lai lai
La-lai la-lai la-lai lai lai lai
La-la la-la la-la la-la-la la la la-la la la-la la la
