David Bowie - After All Lyrics




Please trip them gently, they don't like to fall, Oh by jingo

There's no room for anger, we're all very small, Oh by jingo

We're painting our faces and dressing in thoughts from the skies,
From paradise
But they think that we're holding a secretive ball.
Won't someone invite them
They're just taller children, that's all, after all

Man is an obstacle, sad as the clown, Oh by jingo
So hold on to nothing, and he won't let you down, Oh by jingo
Some people are marching together and some on their own
Quite alone
Others are running, the smaller ones crawl
But some sit in silence, they're just older children
That's all, after all

I sing with impertinence, shading impermanent chords, with my words
I've borrowed your time and I'm sorry I called
But the thought just occurred that we're nobody's children At all, after all
Live till your rebirth and do what you will, Oh by jingo
Forget all I've said, please bear me no ill, Oh by jingo

After all, after all

David Bowie After All Comments
  1. vanessa adriana

    to me it sounds like he says „arme kinder“ instead of „oh by jingo“ - arme kinder means „poor children“ (in german)

  2. matheus mat

    ave gengis khan

  3. Sonidos Perifericos

    what a fucking insane record

  4. Lee James the one and only.

    Quite alone.
    If that is you, don't take it personally.
    You may have it right.
    Live on and prosper.
    For everyone's sake.

  5. Duke Theedam

    miss you mate, rest in peace.

    "After All"

    Please trip them gently, they don't like to fall, Oh by jingo

    There's no room for anger, we're all very small, Oh by jingo

    We're painting our faces and dressing in thoughts from the skies,
    From paradise
    But they think that we're holding a secretive ball.
    Won't someone invite them
    They're just taller children, that's all, after all

    Man is an obstacle, sad as the clown, Oh by jingo
    So hold on to nothing, and he won't let you down, Oh by jingo
    Some people are marching together and some on their own
    Quite alone
    Others are running, the smaller ones crawl
    But some sit in silence, they're just older children
    That's all, after all

    I sing with impertinence, shading impermanent chords, with my words
    I've borrowed your time and I'm sorry I called
    But the thought just occurred that we're nobody's children At all, after all
    Live till your rebirth and do what you will, Oh by jingo
    Forget all I've said, please bear me no ill, Oh by jingo

    After all, after all
