Bowie, David - This Is Not America Lyrics




This is not America, sha la la la la

A little piece of you
The little peace in me
Will die (This is not a miracle)
For this is not America

Blossom fails to bloom this season
Promise not to stare
Too long (This is not America)
For this is not the miracle

There was a time
A storm that blew so pure
For this could be the biggest sky
And I could have the faintest idea

For this is not America
Sha la la la la...
This is not America, no
This is not, sha la la la la

Snowman melting from the inside
Falcon spirals to the ground
(This could be the biggest sky)
So bloody red, tomorrow's clouds

A little piece of you
The little piece in me
Will die (This could be a miracle)
For this is not America

There was a time
A wind that blew so young
For this could be the biggest sky
And I could have the faintest idea

For this is not America
Sha la la la la...
This is not America, no
This is not, sha la la la

This is not America, no
This is not
This is not America, no
This is not, sha la la la

    This is not future USA

  11. Marcia Cuesta

    Bowie is awesome, but Metheny’s haunting music wraps around the entire song like a mesmerizing pull on the senses all through the song and then at key points lifting you up and over and sideways... Bowie’s vocals plus the song offers an amazing transcendent experience. Pat Metheny is a genius.

  37. Robert West

    My favorite movie of all time. Young men go way way over their head. Poor things. Pat Metheny, David Bowie ( he did cat people too) the movie, the actors all came together as a powerful concept - and bowie lets you know. I can not believe how much great supergreat shit he put out. In a womens one piece bathjng suit in the 70s. And marries freakin iman. David, you nut.

    This is not America
    Shala la la la
    A little piece of you
    The little peace in me
    Will die
    For this is not America
    Blossom fails to bloom this season
    Promise not to stare
    Too long
    For this is not a miracle
    There was a time
    A storm that blew so pure
    For this could be the biggest sky
    And I could have the faintest idea
    For this is not America
    This is not America
    This is not
    Snowman melting from the inside
    Falcon spirals
    To the ground
    So bloody red tomorrows clouds
    A little piece of you
    The little piece in me
    Will die
    For this is not America
    There was a time
    A wind that blew so young
    For this could be the biggest sky
    And I could have the faintest idea
    For this is not America
    This is not America
    This is not
    This is not America
    This is not
    This is not America

  55. Anne Renfrew

    Amanda Ellis 💚💜 so much wisdom from our heart squad. Let's help light up our planet with healing & love.

  56. Neil Dorsett

    It's kind of hard to imagine an artist in the late 20th century vein who was also so prolific and familiar with the old ways of doing things: This song, among others, was the result of "excellent song for the end credits of your relatively to hugely expensive motion picture, which incorporates references both thematic and direct, including callbacks to the style of the overall soundtrack of the film" being a STANDARD CATALOG item for David Bowie post-1980; essentially the same kind of essential creative item you'd order from Shirley Bassey, but in a much more forward-thinking mode. Amazing.

  57. Elisabetta Smeraldi

    David mi manchi!

  62. Marko Krunic

    The master Bowie is so prophetic looking beyond the conceited and self serving triumphalism of the American elites to expose the hollow decay underneath.

  63. philippe verneris

    Hy guys! Thanks for the song! One of the best melody i've heard in the pop music...
    But don't forget that it was writen by Pat Metheny; David Bowie only wrote the lyrics...
    The melody comes from Pat's genius: this guy is awesome!

    I'm here too because of Amanda's video. It was so moving what she channelled from David especially.✨💫✨

    Carol Saia

    Yes!! Listening to Amanda today in Stockton Ca. Shared to my fb friends!

    Carol Saia

    I also listen to MaryAnne of Revealing Light Tarot in AU, Lena Rodriguez, and David Johnson, psychic. All excellent on politics.

    mendi cowles

    yes me too. 💥💜💥

    The good and the bad are obviously intwined. Evil will come “to and fro”. “A little piece of me and you will die”. America is not in this universe, because America is heaven. America is freedom.

  86. Agustin Pereyra

    the best bowie song ever. This is so "little piece in me".

  87. Anna Lisa

    this is the voice I hear when I think about how my country treated our indigenous and still treats them; how racism still flames around every city like tiny spot wildfires, never being put out, how women are not paid equal to men, how guns threaten our little children, trying to learn in school...all these things... and America, known as the best country....hell, we all live on a polluted planet Earth... our HOME my fellow citizens... Bowie, YOU tell us !!!

    Agustin Pereyra

    EEUU is not america, EEUU is a little piece of America, like Perú, Argentina, etc etc etc. If we start from there, all things will change. EEUU needs a change. "the best country in the world" makes wars anywhere for they only benefits.Well i hope they change.

    trespire

    @Anna Lisa Ignorance , whether it be willfully or circumstantial, is the root of evil. Empathy will save us.
