Born in a UFO

Album: The Next Day Extra (2013)
  • Born in a UFO
    She was born in a UFO

    I come to the glade and watch the saucer land
    She glided through the mist in an a-line skirt
    Booted her shoes like hooves in the dirt
    Her clutch bag reflected the sun and steel
    The 50's movie, so many squealed
    There's no direction home she pleads
    She cornered me against the trees
    I was home I thought, my life could start

    She was (not like the other girls)
    (I was) born under a stone
    (We were) born with a single voice
    She was born in a UFO
    Born in a UFO

    My friends sit around at the end of town
    With their heads in their hands in the cool twilight air
    I can see by their eyes that they're bitching sore
    I'd rather be dead than fool around here anymore
    She was all courage, geometric face
    Electric skin, plastic and lace
    Silver hair, trapezoid flanks
    I was so in love with her lavender vest

    She was (not like the other girls)
    (I was) born under a stone
    (We were) born with a single voice
    She was born in a UFO
    Like in outer space

    Born in a UFO
    She was born in a UFO
    Born in a UFO
    (She was) born in a UFOWriter/s: DAVID BOWIE
