Pretty, pretty STAR

[BC Solo]

Yes, this is the most Bowiesque title imaginable and that's the point. It was my way of winking and saying that I know what's going on here and I'm not going to pretend I'm not going there. I know David halfway decently, and I've always been open about my love for his work. Then having played with Mike Garson who was the Aladdin Sane pianist and all that stuff, my heart is close to that feeling. (BC, SheKnows.com interview Aug. 2005)

 

Lyrics

wind a spire survey the hours i'm secrets, secrets
spilling on the floor
find a love a just because i need you, so much
begging till i'm poor
wanting so much more this hurts kid
strangers find the eyes, just the same

every time i start
reaching out to find you
loneliness abounds
pretty, pretty star
only you remind me
that only you can find me, in you
in all i choose

wait rewind my life is mine so many travelers
carry past the word
flowers jake the sun afraid i'm blinking softly
wishing on your name
wondering who to blame next, low this
crawling towards the door, just the same

every time i start
reaching out to find you
loneliness abounds
pretty, pretty star
only you remind me
that only love can blind
every time i start
emptiness confounds me
loneliness astounds me
pretty, pretty star
it's me and you
in all i choose

show me, there's no other
tell me, i'm your lover
make me, wonder who you are to stay

finish, what you started
vanquish, your departed
others, wilting in the shade

can i ask where you are tonight?
do you know where i am right now?

pretty, pretty star
emptiness surrounds me
loneliness confounds
pretty, pretty star
only you remind me
that only love can find, me
