David Bowie: “Fill Your Heart” and you’ll be free

I have always been a David Bowie fan, since the early 1970’s, and I am compelled to share a not so well-known song of his to honor his passing. “Fill Your Heart” on the Hunky Dory album is light, loving and wise.

David Bowie’s Hunky Dory album and I became quite close one fateful night in Virginia a long time ago. Without going into details let me just say that it is forever melded with my soul.

While there really isn’t anything too unique about this blog post, it’s all information you can easily find anywhere online. However I do believe the message in this song is pure and worth pointing out at thisĀ time of his death, January 10, 2016.

David Bowie filled the world with his music and talent, but now he is free!

“Fill Your Heart” by David Bowie

Lyrics:

Fill your heart with love today
Don’t play the game of time
Things that happened in the past
Only happened in your Mind
Only in your Mind-Forget your Mind
And you’ll be free-yea’
The writing’s on the wall
Free-yea’. And you can know it all
If you choose. Just remember
Lovers never lose
‘Cause they are Free of thoughts unpure [sic]
And of thoughts unkind
Gentleness clears the soul
Love cleans the mind
And makes it Free.

Happiness is happening
The dragons have been bled
Gentleness is everywhere
Fear’s just in your Head
Only in your Head
Fear is in your Head
Only in your Head
So Forget your Head
And you’ll be free
The writing’s on the wall
Free-yea’. And you can know it all
If you choose. Just remember
Lovers never lose
‘Cause they are free of thoughts unpure
And of thoughts unkind
Gentleness clears the soul
Love cleans the mind
And makes it Free!!
