Love For Aladdin Sane

I'll give you my hands-I'm alone all the same
Five years gone by but we all feel the shame
The lovechildren wander; their eyes are now misted
With truths Ziggy gave them when Earth still existed. 
His face was so pretty, His lips and His hair
But we are the dead, and we no longer care
We killed him. He killed us. 
You're left all alone
You run to the window, wish someone would phone
The Prettiest Star is outshined by the dawn
Who to spend the night with when everyone's gone? 
The stage is deserted
and Death took its toll
Abandoning you with your poor grinning soul
If only you knew what I'd do for your smile
If only you knew me as your rest and peace child
Still you dash away with roses
and you know not to fake it
breaking up is hard
but you know we can't make it
For I went with Him, too- now you know very well
That somehow the Pretty Things end up in Hell.
