- The hand that wrote this letter
- Sweeps the pillow clean
- So rest your head and read a treasured dream
- I care for no one else but you
- I tear my soul to cease the pain
- I think maybe you feel the same
- What can we do?
- I'm not quite sure what we're supposed to do
- So I've been writing just for you
- They say your life is going very well
- They say you sparkle like a different girl
- But something tells me that you hide
- When all the world is warm and tired
- You cry a little in the dark
- Well, so do I
- I'm not quite sure what you're supposed to say
- But I can see it's not okay
- He makes you laugh
- He brings you out in style
- He treats you well
- And makes you up real fine
- And when he's strong
- He's strong for you
- And when you kiss
- It's something new
- But did you ever call my name
- Just by mistake?
- I'm not quite sure what I'm supposed to do
- So I'll just write some love to you
The song is a tribute to Bowie's ex-girlfriend Hermione Farthingale.
