Feelin’ the cold blue silence of forever

Another voice in the soundtrack of our lives

Flyin’ with a billion stars all around1

An Eagle soars to join the Starman


Our heart keeps sayin' it's just not fair2

Hearts are achin’, feelin’ like screamin’
The music’s fleein’ this old cold world

Bells should be ringing this sad, sad news3

Feelin’ the cold blue silence of forever

While Death carries another legend away 


Feelin’ the cold blue silence of forever

Another voice in the soundtrack of our lives

Flyin’ with a billion stars all around1

An Eagle soars to join the Starman


Lent to us we forgot, now lifted high

Frey-man took flight to join heaven’s band

Soaring with a billion stars all around1

The music shimmers in every star we see

Gives him wings to climb high and far

Nothing made him turn around and stay4

An Eagle soars to join the Starman


Feelin’ the cold blue silence of forever

Another voice in the soundtrack of our lives

Flyin’ with a billion stars all around1

An Eagle soars to join the Starman


Frey-man gave us the best of his music5

Singin’ the vict’ry song, he’s already gone8

And we just can’t hide our cryin’ eyes6

We’ll dance to remember, Won’t ever forget7

Feelin’ the cold blue silence of forever

As Death carries another legend away


Feelin’ the cold blue silence of forever

Another voice in the soundtrack of our lives

Flyin’ with a billion stars all around1

An Eagle soars to join the Starman

they come in threes, and there have been such a bunch of celebrities lately...perhaps there will be another rocker?

so sad, they were so young...and gave us so much great music---this is a really excellent poem of tribute to both frey and bowie...they are both soaring above, now.

Another voice in the soundtrack of our lives... So true - too many gone all at once. This is a perfect tribute, an homage to the lyrics that stay with us, even when the artist is gone...

Excellent way to work in the song lyrics, and the repetition gives this a powerful rhythm. I'm sure he'd love this tribute. Also, great choice of pictures to accompany your words.
