Happy Birthday, David Bowie, who would have been 74 today, had he not died five years ago on January 10, 2016. We still miss you, David.

“I Can’t Give Everything Away” was the last song on his last album, “Blackstar.”

I know something is very wrong
The post returns for prodigal songs
With blackout harks with flowered muse
With skull designs upon my shoesI can’t give everything
I can’t give everything
Away
I can’t give everything
AwaySeeing more and feeling less
Saying no but meaning yes
This is all I ever meant
That’s the message that I sentI can’t give everything
I can’t give everything
Away
I can’t give everything
AwayI can’t give everything
I can’t give everything
Away
I can’t give everything
AwayI know something is very wrong
The post returns for prodigal songs
The blackout harks with flowered muse
With skull designs upon my shoesI can’t give everything
I can’t give everything
Away
I can’t give everything
AwayI can’t give everything
I can’t give everything
Away
I can’t give everything
Away
