In this age of grand illusion you walked into my life out of my dreams

       B                             E                  
Just because I believe don't mean I don't think as well

         F              F7              A               A7
And I'm trying hard to fit among your scheme of things

And I don't stand in my own light
G     D                             A         G    D

Sweet name, you're born once again for me
         B                       E                     
just as long as I can see, I'll never stop this vision flowing

I look twice and you're still flowing

Sweet name, you're born once again for me

"Ashes to Ashes" is a single by David Bowie, released in 1980. It made #1 in the UK and was the first cut from the Scary Monsters (and Super Creeps) album, also a #1 hit. As well as its musical qualities, it is noted for its innovative video, directed by Bowie and David Mallet. Bowie has said that with this song he was "wrapping up the seventies really for myself, and that seemed a good enough epitaph for it".[1]
