David Bowie’s Final Song, ‘Lazarus’

As we say goodbye to David Bowie, many are looking at his final song, released just a few days ago according to his wishes. The dark and haunting music video show’s a frail Bowie in a hospital bed with a bandage over his eyes and buttons in their place. He sings about being “free just like that bluebird”.

‘Lazarus’ lyrics in full

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
