Thursday's Child

Album: Hours... (1999)
Charted: 16
  • All of my life I've tried so hard
    Doing my best with what I had
    Nothing much happened all the same

    Something about me stood apart
    A whisper of hope that seemed to fail
    Maybe I'm born right out of my time
    Breaking my life in two

    Throw me tomorrow, oh oh
    Now that I really got a chance
    Throw me tomorrow, oh oh
    Everything's falling into place
    Throw me tomorrow, oh oh
    Seeing my past to let it go
    Throw me tomorrow, oh oh
    Only for you I don't regret

    And I was Thursday's child (oh oh)
    Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, born I was

    Sometimes I cry my heart to sleep
    Nothing prepared me for your smile
    Lighting the darkness of my soul
    Innocence in your arms
    Throw me down, ah

    Throw me tomorrow, oh oh
    Now that I really got a chance
    Throw me tomorrow, oh oh
    Everything's falling into place
    Throw me tomorrow, oh oh
    Seeing my past to let it go
    Throw me tomorrow, oh oh
    Only for you I don't regret
    And I was Thursday's child

    Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, born I was
    Thursday's child
    Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, born I was
    Thursday's child (ah ah ah)
    Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, born I was
    Ah ah ah, ah ah ah
    Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, born I was
    Ah ah ah ah, ah ah ah ah, ah ah ah ah, ah ah ah ah
    Monday, Tuesday, Wednesday, born I was
    Ah ah ah ah, ah ah ah ah Writer/s: DAVID BOWIE, REEVES GABRELS
