Letter to Hermione - David Bowie

(from Space Oddity album)


This is one of the most beautiful songs from Bowie. I've been looking for

it for some time but I haven't been able to find it so I thougt I'd figure

it out myself. If you listen to the record you can hear that there are more

than one guitar, or at least a twelve-string.

Am7 C/G

The hand that wrote this letter Sweeps the pillow clean

Am7 C/G

So rest your head and read a treasured dream

Em7sus4 Em*

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?

C/G* Em7sus4

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





Johan Sundin | Felix qui potuit rerum | cognoscere causas.
