David Bowie - The Hearts Filthy Lesson Lyrics

(Heart's filthy lesson)
There's always the Diamond friendly
Sitting in the Laugh Motel
The Heart's filthy lesson
With her hundred miles to hell

Oh, Ramona - if there was only something between us
If there was only something between us
Other than our clothes
Something in our skies
Something in our skies
Something in our blood
Something in our skies
Paddy, Paddy
Who's been wearing Miranda's clothes?

It's the Heart's filthy lesson
Heart's filthy lesson
Heart's filthy lesson
Falls upon deaf ears
(Heart's filthy lesson)
It's the Heart's filthy lesson
Heart's filthy lesson
Heart's filthy lesson
Falls upon deaf ears
Falls upon dead ears

(Heart's filthy lesson)
Oh Ramona, if there was only some kind of future [x2]
And these cerulean skies
Something in our skies [x2]
Something in our blood
Something in our skies

Paddy, Paddy?
Paddy oh Paddy,
I think I've lost my way
(Heart's filthy lesson, Heart's filthy lesson)
I'm already five years older I'm already in my grave
(Heart's filthy lesson, Heart's filthy lesson)
I'm already (x3)
(Heart's filthy lesson, Heart's filthy lesson)
Will you carry me?
Oh Paddy, I think I've lost my way
Paddy, what a fantastic death abyss (2)
(Heart's filthy lesson)
It's the Heart's filthy lesson

Tell the others
(Heart's filthy lesson)
It's the Heart's filthy lesson
What a fantastic death abyss
Tell the others
(Heart's filthy lesson)
It's the Heart's filthy lesson
what a fantasic death abyss
(Heart's filthy lesson)
It's the Heart's filthy lesson
Tell the others

    Ooh... This is quite lovely

  12. mrubbish1

    features and produced by Brian Eno

  13. A Alan B

    Someone should make a Kevin Spacey video with this song now that he’s creepier than John Doe. It’ll be this song, and the scene from American Beauty where he asks Mena Suvari if she likes muscles on loop.

  14. Chris Greene

    Awesome song. Great production, Hey Drake this is what a real artist sounds like

  15. Ric J

    Only a true genius could come up with a work of art like this video



  17. Dan Danson

    Pretty sure Marilyn Manson saw this before making the Beautiful People vid

  18. Patrice Closin


  19. Tony Tafoya

  23. shaniqua johnson

    WiG's Filthy LEsson!!

  24. Nuclear-Skull87

    70 people haven't learned the heart's filthy-lesson!

  25. Lesia Umanets

    Mike Garson's piano always works great in any music genre

  26. Steven Morrison

    KoRn, Tool? Nope just David Bowie :D

  27. Jose Eduardo Patricio

    This more crazy than black or death metal jejejejee

  28. Irene Schachtel

    I LOVE BOWIE, my favorite changeling, forever

  29. Paul Staker

    Man heard this come up while the credits roll UPWARDS at the end of Se7en was such a tremendous cap off for such a bizarre movie.

  30. lady Buggy

    Renaissance Man

  31. Steven Boniface

    67 people are arsholes

  32. Togo Burrows

    this video alludes to the s&m cannibal cults in europe
    that’s why utub is censoring it

  33. Jason Sphinx

    Z○S○was here~

  34. Oliver Aton

    Who listen in 2019 ?

    Leydis Fuentes

    Yo jajjajajaja pero ya la conocía desde hace aaaaaños... es sólo que extraño a Bowie😢

    callemos los brutos E

    ME, EVER.

    Dante V

    I listen Bowie every single day even when I'm a metalhead Bowie is the greatest ever

    Paul Burgess

    Me. Always. Bowie is the greatest ever, and Outside is one of his most underappreciated works.

  35. Jason Blount

    Go tell the others!

  36. Sanjay Bakshi

    He's alive! Sloth

  37. GoodMrDawes

    Genius Loops

  38. John David Hart

    David and I constantly spoke of not doing what is the norm and rising above this creatively. It becomes simple mathematics after a while. after all, 3.14 is simply a magic number and we are made of it and so much more

  39. AJtheory

    *OAHW* Wy*NOWN*ah

  40. Thomas de Quincey

    Just for the record, it's available on Best of Bowie (2002) 2xDVD9 compilation. They should've at least added this info if they don't want a free lunch on youtube.

  41. Nuclear-Skull87

    This looks like nightmare-fuel imagery from a Silent-Hill game. But that is why I love it though.

  42. kristivadiva1066

    The 1990's were an interesting time,bith in Music,and in everything else.recall,the album Outside followed Black Tie,White Noise,and the album Earthling followed. Three very different,very complex styles.all beautifully done,by Himself,the band,everyone involed. I had front row center,for the Outside tour,in 1995!

    Balázs Török


    Paul Moseley

    Black Tie White Noise 1993, Outside 1995, Earthling 1997.

  43. Precious DeVere

    I want to see the original video for some reason it's no longer on here and its brillient. Miss you Mr Bowie x

    shaniqua johnson

  51. IanGettings

    Wow!! Great song. One you don't often hear on collections etc.

  52. MrSingh’s Kebab Store

    Greed, Gluttony, Wrath, Sloth, Pride, Lust and Envy.

  53. Jay Gee

    Sure it's murder, but is it art?

  54. Paul Staker

    A David Bowie song to cap off an amazing David Fincher movie feature Det. David Mills.

  55. Ivory Milk

    This is just PERFECT for the end of SEVEN!

  56. David Sánchez

    The way that people adore the figure in the video of this song is very similar to the way that womens adore the skull in Blackstar.

  57. Kenny _

    Kevin Spacey as John Doe

  58. John David Hart

    we talked about this...why do we have such deep emotional pain from our attachments... we need to fly home free

  59. Nathan Smith

    It was cool he teamed up with Eno again

  60. Nathan Smith

    It was teamed with Eno again

  61. Nathan Smith

    Outside was a good album considering he had a lot of lame ones in the 80s and early 90s

  62. Johnny

    This for me is the Most electrifying song by Bowie.

  63. Mitul b

    World is a fine place and worth fighting for

  64. guidomille

    i miss him so much

  65. Prentice978b L

    Why the original video isn't allowed on youtube? I mean, NIN's Closer is way scarier and vulgar than this. Maybe Industrial Bowie is too much scary for mainstream audiences?

  66. Diane McQuade

    Don't think I will ever get over him being gone! It's too much...

  67. Diane McQuade

    "If there was only something between us, other than our clothes.."

  68. Zachariah Darko

    Put the fucking real video online for Christ (and Bowie's) sake...

  69. 23ChrissaysFAREWELL

    I remember seeing David Bowie as Nikola Tesla in Christopher Nolan's ”The Prestige”. Amazing performance! R.I.P David Bowie.

  70. User

    DB was blowing minds.... still is. He was from another dimension. Who remember "Starman"?
