David Bowie: CACTUS
Sitting here
wishing on a cement floor
Just wishing that
i had just something you wore
I put it on when I go lonely
Will you take off your dress
and send it to me?

I miss your kissin'
and i miss your head
And a letter in your writing
doesn't mean you're not dead

Just run outside in the desert heat
Make your dress all wet
and send it to me
I miss your soup and I miss your bread
And a letter in your writing
doesn't mean you're not dead
So spill your breakfast
and drip your wine
Just wear that dress when you dine


So, sitting here wishing
on a cement floor
Just wishing that i had just something you wore
Bloody your hands on a cactus tree
Wipe'em on your dress
and send it to me
Sitting here wishing on a cement floor
Just wishing that i had just something you wore

Mieux vaut éviter d'y toucher même si la lumière le baigne généreusement ...

Dutronc chantait aussi que "le Monde entier est un cactus"...
En tous cas cette image superbe ne manque pas de piquants!

Good powerful song by Bowie, fits of course very well for this fine image. Great light.

Nice contrasts of colour & I love how the light picks up the spines.
Maaike Huizer05-Nov-2008 14:41
You have captured the light on this cactus so well.

I love being introduced to music that I am unfamiliar with and this challenge certainly does that. This is great. The image is very tactile and goes well with the song title.
