Shining Star (Makin' My Love)

This song is by David Bowie and appears on the album Never Let Me Down (1987).

Eddie boy lit like paraffin spending two weeks in a crack house
Burns on his brain like Chernobyl
Dean was seen with a two bag purchase
He was lying dead on his mother's bed
Someone to pray for-till I met you

Life is like a broken arrow
Memory a swingin' door
I could be your great misfortune
I can make you happy every day of your life

Making my love like a shining star
Takin' my love just a touch too far

Tessie turns tricks with a soul like ice cause love left holes
And four swell kids breaking her heart
I've got windows, I've seen much vice, I've touched down with vermin,
Cowardice, lice,
And I say

Nobody cares what you do
Please be yourself to death
I could be your great misfortune
But you'll never find a
Bet you'll never find a better man.

Making my love like a shining star
Taking my love just a touch too far

Peter met Frank formed a dummy run gang
Worked heist or hit for 10 g's flat
Blew heads outta shape for the name of Trotsky,
Sinn-Fein, Hitler cashdown
No hope heroes cover this page with depts in hell
And fingers in blood
Poor little bodies all covered in scabs
Threw it all away

Have a life in the grave
Have a life in the grave

Life is like a broken arrow
Memory a swingin' door
I could be your great misfortune
Well I could make you happy every goddamn single day of your life

Making my love like a shining star
Like a shining star
Babe that's what you are
Like a shining star

Making my love like a shining star
Taking my love
Just a touch too far

Making my love like a shining star
Taking my love
Just a touch too far

Making my love like a shining star
Taking my love
Just a touch too far

Making my love like a shining star
Taking my love
