"Five Years" as written by and David Bowie....
I've seen it in your eyes
Looks like your sneaking and all your lies
They did catch up to you this time
I swear I heard you say
Blood is forever
Love is forever
I can fool myself all that I want
But I saw the room, I heard your voice, I saw your eyes
The truth will always get the best of you inside or out
It took me two years to find that I wasted five years of me life
Felt the truth within you and I saw red
I guess we are, we are the long goodbye
What wasted time
I always hoped somehow it never happened to us
But it is something that did
And something that I can't forget
And after all of our times
You fucked and did what you did
This was days and weeks, days and weeks of deceit
It was days and weeks of deceit
You turned and walked away
You said you'd be back tomorrow
Well tomorrow had come and gone
Looks like your choking on all those lies
They did catch up with you this time
I swear I heard you say blood is forever
But it seems forever meant nothing to you
It meant nothing but I swear I heard you say
Blood is forever

    General Commenti thought it meant that too. but why does he say "blood is forever"

    if it was a girl then it wouldn't be blood. this must be a family member or something?

    General Commentactually this song is about my sister, my sister dated him for 5 years.. there was no lies or bitter breakups. its a matter of growing apart with him touring. no heartless bitch in this picture. blood means family.

    General Commentblood is forever?
    i'm thinking it's about a family member, or a really close friend.

    and he says
    "I can fool myself all that i want"
    because no matter how much they said that blood & love is forever, he still got fucked over by the friend.

    "It took me two years to find that i wasted five years of me life"
    maybe they were friends for around 5 years, it took him 2 to realize that the guy was a dick and never really was a true friend.

    might not be correct but it makes sense to me.
