I love to listen to songs and read the lyrics at the same time, sometimes I even write them down and try to see if I had got them right. This makes me often wonder what the person who wrote the song were thinking at the time and what he is trying to say by the song and the lyric. I often think that songs has a dobble meaning. 

Read this lyric as long as you listen to the song and see how it makes you feel. First time I heard it, I thougt it was just a great song, then I read the lyric and I fell in love with it. It made me think how lucky I am and the fact that there are people in this world that doesn't have anyone nearby and just want to escape from this little earth that we share. 

 

Life on Mars, by David Bowie

It's a god-awful small affair
To the girl with the mousy hair
But her mummy is yelling "No"
And her daddy has told her to go
But her friend is nowhere to be seen
Now she walks through her sunken dream
To the seat with the clearest view
And she's hooked to the silver screen
But the film is a saddening bore
Though she's lived it ten times or more
She could spit in the eyes of fools
As they ask her to focus on

Sailors fighting in the dance hall
Oh man! Look at those cavemen go
It's the freakiest show
Take a look at the Lawman
Beating up the wrong guy
Oh man! Wonder if he'll ever know
He's in the best selling show
Is there life on Mars?

It's on America's tortured brow
That Mickey Mouse has grown up a cow
Now the workers have struck for fame
'Cause Lennon's on sale again
See the mice in their million hordes
From Ibiza to the Norfolk Broads
Rule Britannia is out of bounds
To my mother, my dog, and clowns
But the film is a saddening bore
'Cause I wrote it ten times or more
It's about to be writ again
As I ask you to focus on

Sailors fighting in the dance hall
Oh man! Look at those cavemen go
It's the freakiest show
Take a look at the Lawman
Beating up the wrong guy
Oh man! Wonder if he'll ever know
He's in the best selling show
Is there life on Mars?
