One Inch Thoughts

Why don't we do the sophisticated thing and all sleep together?

Don't forget to keep your head warm

Made for a real world, all things must pass

And the shadow man is close at hand

Don't stay in a sad place, where they don't care how you are

Wipe it on your dress and send it to me

This really isn't bad you know

Ain't there one damn song that can make me break down and cry?

All is God and God is just a word

And the street overflows with folk who understand

And there's nothing to be desired

Andy where's my fifteen minutes?

Are those porcupines on your breasts?

Are you in a cult or something?

As I said before, I never repeat myself

Boy, you're really hooked on water, aren't you?

Fashion comes and goes... style doesn't

Did David ever play in a club called 'The Webb'?

Did Jimmy end up getting a sex change operation?

Down in space it's always Nineteen Eighty Two

He was never quite sure but really sane

He's from his own universe. The Bowie Universe

How I wonder where you are

I don't sit and wait, I don't give a damn

I had to phone someone, so I picked on you

I look at my watch it says 9:25 and I think...

I think I'm clean now, if you could pass me a towel I'll be on my way

I will show you such things my boy that will change the entire philosophy of your life

I wish I'd sent a Valentine

I'm interested in what Bowie does because I care about what he does

I'm not nearly as think as you drunk I am

I'm sorry, I can't leave it with you. It's not that I don't trust you

If I lived in Sweden, you'd really know about it.

If the money is lousy you can always come home

In nine hours and twenty three minutes you'll be mine

In order to change the world you have to change yourself first

In your fear seek only peace

One tequila, two tequila, three tequila, floor

Open up your heart to me and I would be your slave

Never wear a new pair of shoes in front of him

Please make sure we get tomorrow

Please tell me if you don't get this message

Put down my sun visor and boy I really felt blue

So bloody your hands on the cactus tree

This is your bottle, keep it clean and tidy, bring it back on Friday

Turn back, Sarah. Turn back, before it's too late

Waiting for something, looking for someone

You go through stages where you wonder whether you are Christ, or just looking for him

You should call and see who answers

He sings a lovely counterpoint

David always likes to get in dresses if possible

Sussex. I don't know why, but I'll never remember that name

I live in my own little world, but it's ok, everyone knows me here

Have you ever wondered what Dandelion wine tastes like?

God is on top of it all

Did you guess that we've been done wrong?

Do you remember, the bills you have to pay?

Sometimes I think my head is so big because it's so full of dreams

Hands up who knew Major Tom was a junkie?

Somewhere she glows divine. Somewhere she wakes alone

He has one of the most outstanding faces of the 20th Century

How many damn songs can make you break down and cry?

Would you like to put a record on, Mr. Newton? Music doesn't disturb me

I thank God David is English

A nice gin and tonic, with four cubes of ice and a slice of lime. How's that sound, mister?

Tomorrow's rewards bloody skies of today

I think she might be ready to talk now

Should I believe that I've been stricken?

Ain't there a child I can hold without judging?

Satori must be something just the same

Time flies when you're having fun

Prayers... they hide the saddest view

I saw your film two and half times

Find a job you love and you'll never have to work a day in your life

Go back to your room, play with your toys and your costumes

Oh God, I could do better than that

Good God! Was it really yesterday?

How badly did David burn his hand during the Loving The Alien video?

There are two sides to every divorce: Yours and Shithead's

Screw Up Your Brother or He'll Get You In the End

How many one dollar secrets do you know?

Our mission: To boldly stay home and listen to David Bowie

Read? I have other people to do that for me. Taking notes

My, that sure is a fancy looking pen you got there

Cyclops?... Yes that's the one I'd get

What the hell is a near miss? If you nearly miss something, don't you hit it?

Oh yes, Mr. Sussex, we've been expecting you. Room 505, please

Why are there 3 dots after 'hours...'?

If you had a can of spray paint in your hand, what would you write on the wall right now?

Search through their one inch thoughts, then decide it couldn't be done

Please don't tell us were the sun goes

Look for the cause or signs of life

Watching all the world worn torn

We were done but you were fun boy

Just wishing that I had just something you wore

Get out of my mind, all of you! Go back where you belong!

I may be a gigolo... but I'm not a whore!

Open up your heart to me, show me who you are

I'm an instant star; just add water

Breaking up is hard, but keeping dark is hateful

Can you remember what your father said?

I wonder if Sailor ever did fight in a dance hall?

Can you remember what your brother said?

C'mon and get a good idea, c'mon and get it soon

Can you remember what your mother said?

Don't you wonder sometimes about sound and vision

Don't let the milk float ride your mind

Did Arthur slow down and stick to thirty?

Don't let the sun blast your shadow

Don't forget the Motor City

Did the world just explode? Don't recognise anyone

Do you hear what I hear? Do you see what I see?

Imagine if all the sheep in the sky stopped jumping over the fence, we'd never be able to get to sleep at night now would we?

Don't be afraid of the man in the moon

Do you think that your face looks the same?

Does he fly like Mr. Superman, speak Chinese, French and Dutch?

Did you ever have a dream or two, where the hero is a guy named you?

I thought that rabbit was eating your head

Do you remember, your President Nixon?

Does my face show some kind of glow?

Do you think that your face looks the same?

Did Mr. Walloff Domburg lease the shop?

It's only forever, not long at all

Don't turn your nose up, well you can if you need to, you won't be the first or last

Electric blue. That's the colour of my room where I will live

Have you ever been to Oxford Town?

If David Jones had of been born David Smith would he of still changed his name to Bowie?

Humble pie or bitter fruit?

Have you ever woken up one day with the feeling that you'd been away?

If Mark Plati felt numb one day, would he suddenly become a precious metal?

Hey, that's far out so you heard him too?

Can you remember the good old days when groups made singles not just album tracks?

I wonder if Billy did kick it in the head when he was 25?

If you get certainty does knowledge come along free?

Don't forget to turn on the light

I looked at you and wondered if you saw things my way

I think I want for you to... marry me

I wouldn't do that if I were you

It's clear that some things never take

If you pray all your sins are hooked upon the sky

If you throw a dart in a lovers eye is it a bullseye?

Imagine what the promo video for The Bewlay Brothers would have looked like?

It could have been me, oh yeah, it could have been me

Look at this - no second glances

I'm busting up my brains for the words

If it's written on a sweater then I'd better not, you do it

It doesn't matter what you wear, just as long as you are there

I'll spin you Valentine's evenings

I've never touched you since I started to feel

If you close one eye, the people on that side can't see you

Just what IS a pink monkey bird?

Just look through your window

Just because I believe don't mean I don't think as well

Keep your head on and open up your eyes real wide

Keep your eyes on your soul, keep your hand on your heart

What is going on here?

If it's wearing a pink hat, a red nose and it plays a guitar upside down... I'll go and look at it!

Look at this - then look at us

Look at life it's no piece of cake

Look into his eyes and see your reflection

Let me take you back to when it all began...

Love's such an old fashioned word

Leave him a note saying 'Wish you was here'

Myriam! Myriam! What am I going to do?

Money goes to money heaven, bodies go to body hell

Most people hide from their fears. We call them cowards, but they tend to outlive the brave

My God you look extra nice in the cold. Almost Ukranian

Now that David is a doctor - does that mean he's now officially allowed to rub things better?

Just how wise is an Orangutan?

Now that David is a doctor I wonder if his bedside manner has improved?

Oh man I need TV when I got T. Rex... television or Tony Visconti?

Oh do cheer up. You're beginning to look like Edith Piaf

Kick Out Your Mother. Cut Up Your Friend

Paddy will you carry me, I think I've lost my way

Play at maximum volume!!!

Tomorrow belongs to those who can hear it coming

One small move can mean a lot

Let the children lose it, let the children use it, let all the children boogie

Pour me out another phone

Listen to tracks by Sam Therapy and King Dice

Pretty soon you're gonna get a little older

Pull the curtains on yesterday, and it seems so much later

Bowie's gone on a singing tour of South Korea. Seoul? No, R'n'B

Can I leave now? I've got some cleaning to do. I'll come back in a little while, okay?

Mr. Newton, this kind of money buys more than ten hours even of my time. What exactly do you want?

I am a nobody, nobody is perfect, and therefore I am perfect

Revelation comes in the strangest way

Repetition Repetition Repetition

So you'd rather not take a shower for twenty years right?

Shall I meet you in the pump room Sir?

Will you stay or leave me and when the sun goes

For in truth, it's the beginning of nothing

But who are we, so small in times such as these

So much trouble over such a little thing, but not for long

She's a dodo, no no, didn't hear it from me

Silhouettes and shadows watch the revolution

Stay away from the future, back away from the light

This dot . marks your location

The first sign of maturity is the discovery that the volume knob also turns to the left

Those are absurdly tiny gloves

There's old wave and there's new wave. And there's David Bowie

The lips part like silence set for alarm

The whole world is a stage and one man in his time plays many parts

Where there's trouble there's poetry

Hope the weather's good and it's not too hot

Is this trench 17A154?

Is there no reason, have I stayed too long

Make your dress all wet and send it to me

There is no hell. There is no shame

The search for passion, feeling, love: it'll get you every time

This ain't rock 'n' roll. This is genocide!

Have you ever wondered what those little blue square pieces of card placed on the chair on the Ashes To Ashes video are for?

Thanks for telling me. I was just about to drop my pants and make my monkey dance

The wrong words make you listen

Wake up you sleepy head

Meanwhile... I'm at The Eden

Would you buy a house on Love Me Avenue?

Would David still begin if you weren't sitting comfortably?

We're today's scrambled creatures, locked in tomorrow's double feature

What to do? What to say? What to wear on a sunny day?

The Sun machine is coming down, and we're gonna have a party

I don't want to be presented in public

Is 'hours...' ours, yours or their's?

Why is David holding a blue 'G' clamp in his hand during the Fashion video?

Were the strange ones in the dome librarians?

Why didn't I say? - Why didn't I say?

What meat did Annie eat?

What to say to people when they pick on you?

Wham bam thank you Charlie

Wham bam thank you Ma'am!

What IS that plastic thing around your wrist?

What you gonna say? What you gonna do? What you gonna be?

Wonder what would of happened if David didn't bother to of read Jack Kerouac's 'On The Road'?

Wear your wound with honour, make someone proud

Why does Low sound better now than it did in 1977?

Who to phone? Who to fight? Who to dance with on a Sunday night?

Why don't we pass it by? Just reply, you've changed your mind

What happened to all the old dudes?

Why not talk of dust and roses?

Where have all Papa's heroes gone?

Where's the pain in the violent night?

Would you buy illusions with a sack full of cheques?

Why it is so exciting? What makes me dramatic?

We all look for acceptance in this life. Some of us change to get it. Others cannot change so easily. We must be accepted as we are, warts and all

Why do the first songs you really like on an album always turn out to be the worst ones?

Who's eating the Salt and Vinegar crisps on The Dreamers?

We all look for acceptance in this life. Some of us change to get it

Wish You Could Hear

Where would David be today if the Pye singles all had been top ten hits?

You could not imagine that it could happen this way, could you?

You've gotta have a scheme, you've gotta have a plan

You don't hear a lot about Mrs. Houdini these days do you?

You know you got something, you know you got the style

Ain't you proud that you've struck our faces?

You can walk around in New York while you sleep in bed

You're too old to lose it, too young to choose it

You'll never know the real story

You should call and see who answers

You have a donkey on your door?

You'll never go down to the Gods again

Your karma just ran over my dogma

Not tonight, dear... I have a modem

Reality is for people who can't face science fiction

Caution: The stuff on here is addictive...

I think I think; therefore, I think I am

Hello Doctor Bryce. Found your feet yet?

So many messages, so little time

Don't touch that dial

You're never too old to learn something stupid

Beauty is in the eye of the beer holder...

Ain't there a pen that will write before they die?

I saw the light! It hurt my eyes

Some fears are too great to be ignored, too relentless to flee

Caution: Contents under pressure!

Nothing's gonna touch you in these golden years

For we're living in the safety zone

Unable to locate coffee - operation halted!

You make the funniest faces when you type

I don't know where I'm going from here, but I promise it won't be boring.

The truth is of course is that there is no journey. We are arriving and departing all at the same time.

Sometimes there's no option but to turn and face your fears and see what happens

What are YOU lookin at?

Are you gonna come quietly or must I use earplugs?

Wanted: Unmarried girls to pick fresh fruit and produce

Caution: Don't drive and read this website

Oh hell, I can't think of a good one just now...OK??!!!

Our mission: To boldly stay home and look at David Bowie

No matter where you go... there you are

Our mission: To boldly stay home and read about David Bowie

Death to the trees

Have you ever dined on Vulture soup?

Everything will be alright tonight

Feels like something's gonna happen this year

Feels like something's gonna happen again

Were Tony Day, Brendan O'Lear, Pat Hewitt, Marion Brent and Harry (down The Oak) all real people?

Why do red boxes represent responsibility?

Even a fool learns to love

They got a message from the action man

Morning war hero

I have no time to read

You look as if you're free tonight

He followed me home Mummy. Can I keep him?

You need time to get your bearings

Looking through windows for demons

For God's sake leave me alone

Is his nose broken?

You've been gone for quite some time you know

The men sir. They seem to be cheering. Is that usual?

Ahh you're the sixth bottle

Hope the weather's good and it's not too hot

Get out while you still have a chance

And why didn't you tell me you were leaving?

Don't ask me, the older I get the less I know

Find your own pig!

Don't look at the carpet, I drew something awful on it

I forget if it's always this way

This is definitely my room

I knew you'd come

I feel like a puppet

I've brought a pig home

Some say the view is crazy

Yes. Where IS my pig?

You're going to kill me aren't you?

Remember me? Identification mark... scar... left thigh... Winter Gardens... skating lesson... clumsy cadet. Remember me?

Well what do I think of it? It's wonderful isn't it?

Light men don't walk but they do

Comets like you always visit the stars every couple of years

Does he have to stare like that?

I have the impression my dear friend that we've met before
