Blackstar
[Verse]

B
In the villa of Ormen, in the villa of Ormen
Stands a solitary candle, 
C   D    Em  C
ah-ah, ah-ah
D     C                        Bm     Am
In the centre of it all, in the centre of it all
D       B
Your eyes

On the day of execution, on the day of execution
Only women kneel and smile, ah-ah, ah-ah
At the centre of it all, at the centre of it all
Your eyes, your eyes

D    C    Em
Ah-ah-ah
Ah-ah-ah

In the villa of Ormen, in the villa of Ormen
Stands a solitary candle, ah-ah, ah-ah
In the centre of it all, in the centre of it all
Your eyes
Ah-ah-ah

F#                        Db
Something happened on the day he died
E                       B
Spirit rose a metre and stepped aside
                  D                     F#
Somebody else took his place, and bravely cried
(I’m a blackstar, I’m a blackstar)

How many times does an angel fall?
How many people lie instead of talking tall?
He trod on sacred ground, he cried loud into the crowd
(I’m a blackstar, I’m a blackstar, I’m not a gangster)


[Chorus]

C
I can’t answer why (I’m a blackstar)
Db
Just go with me (I’m not a filmstar)
C
I’m-a take you home (I’m a blackstar)
Db
Take your passport and shoes (I’m not a popstar)
C
And your sedatives, boo (I’m a blackstar)
Db
You’re a flash in the pan (I’m not a marvel star)
C
I’m the great I am (I’m a blackstar)


[Bridge]

F#                      Db                      E
I’m a blackstar, way up, oh honey, I’ve got game
                Ebm
I see right so white, so open-heart it’s pain
D                                       F#
I want eagles in my daydreams, diamonds in my eyes
(I’m a blackstar, I’m a blackstar)

F#                        Db
Something happened on the day he died
E                       B
Spirit rose a metre and stepped aside
                  D                     F#
Somebody else took his place, and bravely cried
(I’m a blackstar, I’m a blackstar)


[Chorus]

C
I can’t answer why (I’m not a gangster)
Db
But I can tell you how (I’m not a flam star)
C
We were born upside-down (I’m a star star)
Db
Born the wrong way ‘round (I’m not a white star)
C
(I’m a blackstar, I’m not a gangster
I’m a blackstar, I’m a blackstar
I’m not a pornstar, I’m not a wandering star
I’m a blackstar, I’m a blackstar)

In the villa of Ormen stands a solitary candle
Ah-ah, ah-ah
At the centre of it all, your eyes
On the day of execution, only women kneel and smile
Ah-ah, ah-ah
At the centre of it all, your eyes, your eyes
Ah-ah-ah

About the artist behind Blackstar:

"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]
