The Daily Bowie #10 - "Where Are We Now?"


The Daily Bowie #10 - "Where Are We Now?"

Deep sadness today.

But "the moment you know, you know, you know..."

From 2013's The Next Day.

FROM WIKIPEDIA: The first single was the ballad "Where Are We Now?", a track which Visconti described as "the only track on the album that goes this much inward for him".[24] Visconti suggested that Bowie chose "Where Are We Now?" as the opening single because "people had to deal with the shock that he was back [after a 10-year absence]" and that the introspective nature of the song made it an appropriate choice.[10] Opening lyrics for "Where Are We Now" reflectively recall the name of a train station (plaza) and a street in west Berlin, where Bowie once lived. A video accompanying the single includes props such as a dismantled photo frame lying discarded on the floor in the opening shot, a large ear in the background, and a two-headed soft doll with the torn faces of Bowie and a voiceless counterpart "pasted" onto it in. Lyrics also include the phrase "the moment you know you know, you know."

DAVID BOWIE - "WHERE ARE WE NOW?"




"Where Are We Now?"

Had to get the train
From Potsdamer Platz
You never knew that
That I could do that
Just walking the dead

Sitting in the Dschungel
On Nürnberger Strasse
A man lost in time
Near KaDeWe
Just walking the dead

Where are we now, where are we now?
The moment you know, you know, you know

Twenty thousand people
Cross Bösebrücke
Fingers are crossed
Just in case
Walking the dead

Where are we now, where are we now?
The moment you know, you know, you know

As long as there's sun
As long as there's sun
As long as there's rain
As long as there's rain
As long as there's fire
As long as there's fire
As long as there's me
As long as there's you
