#LazarusBowie #partinggift

David Bowie confronted his deep fear of death to complete the play and album that would be his final work, writes Sean O'Neill in the London Times. The stage show Lazarus opened in New York a month ago, with a frail Bowie attending the opening night, while his album Blackstar was released on his 69th birthday on Friday, two days before his death. Lazarus was Bowie's parting gift.

Look up here, I’m in heaven

I’ve got scars that can’t be seen

I’ve got drama, can’t be stolen

Everybody knows me now

Look up here, man, I’m in danger

I’ve got nothing left to lose

I’m so high it makes my brain whirl

Dropped my cell phone down below

Ain’t that just like me

By the time I got to New York

I was living like a king

Then I used up all my money

I was looking for your ass

This way or no way

You know, I’ll be free

Just like that bluebird

Now ain’t that just like me

Oh I’ll be free

Just like that bluebird

Oh I’ll be free

Ain’t that just like me
