The stars look very different today
Now a star is gone
Lives now in a different way
As light rays carry on.

There’s a Starman in the sky
He’d like to say hello
Blackstar said goodbye
Knowing we could not let it go.

A musician, a magician
A poet and a friend
This musician had a beginning
To which I can see no end.

So China Girl, Let’s Dance
Through Changes and Sorrow
As now we must advance
With more strings, one less Bow.

There’s a Starman in the sky
He came to blow our minds
In so doing he can never die
Through so many lives still shines.

Could not give everything away
Yet gave so many things to us
Ashes to Ashes
Bowie to Stardust.
