You've Been Around

This song is by David Bowie and appears on the album Black Tie White Noise (1993).

Where's the pain in the violent night?
I'm depressed by the grin
I stay over many years
I should have thought of that
For the love of the money
Like a black-hearted violin
It's the nature of being

It's too many lonely nights
I can't tell bad from wrong
I can't pass you by
Two exchanging
You've been around
But you've changed me

Where the flesh meets the spirit world
Where the traffic is thin
I slip from a vacant view
I should have thought of that
And the sound of tomorrow
Like a black-hearted vile thing
Like the silence of tension

It's too many lonely nights
I can't tell good from bad
I can't pass you by
Too exchanging
You've been around
But you've changed me

You've been around
Can't pass you by
You've been around
But you've changed me

Ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-ch-change!

Too exchanging

You've been around
But you've changed me
You've been around
Can't pass you by
