    You always were the one that knew
    They sold us for the likes of you
    I always wanted new surroundings

    A room to rent while the lizards lay crying in the heat
    And trying to remember who to meet
    I would take a foxy kind of stand
    While tens of thousands found me in demand

    When you rock 'n' roll with me
    No one else I'd rather be
    Nobody here can do it for me
    I'm in tears again
    When you rock 'n' roll with me

    Gentle hearts are counted down
    The queue is out of sight and out of sounds
    Me, I'm out of breath, but not quite doubting
    I've found a door which lets me out

    When you rock 'n' roll with me
    No one else I'd rather be
    Nobody down here can do it for me
    I'm in tears again
    When you rock 'n' roll with me

    A duet with him and Bowie would have rocked my world. "Golden Years" would be a total hoot with Puddles or even "Young Americans" since that suit the sadness he can emote so well.

    The ultimate sad song from bowie for puddles to do I believe would be "Five Years" if he could see his way to doing that one that would be awesome. It would match his voice perfectly.

    What a beautiful Tribute to David Bowie!!! Great work! I find myself singing to his music also. I think his last album Dark Star was probably his best work, all when he knew he was dying. What a dedicated artist. Your song is wonderful Puddles. Keep up the GREAT WORK!
