"Come Up and See Me (Make Me Smile)" as written by and Steve Harley....
You've done it all, you've broken every code
And pulled the rebel to the floor
You spoilt the game, no matter what you say
For only metal-what a bore!
Blue eyes, blue eyes, how come you tell
So many lies?

Come up and see me, make me smile
Or do what you want, run on wild.

There's nothing left, all gone and run away
Maybe you'll tarry for a while
It's just a test, a game for us to play
Win or lose, it's hard to smile
Resist, resist, it's from yourself you have to hide.

There ain't no more, you've taken everthing
From my belief in Mother Earth
How can you ignore my faith in everything
When I know what faith is and what it's worth
Away, away, and don't say maybe you'll try.

    General CommentActually, I'm not sure this is a Bowie cover. I don't think it is. For some reason I thought I heard it was.
