"Without You" as written by Bradley Kirk Arnold, Robert Todd Harrell, Christopher Lee Henderson, Matthew Darrick Roberts and Silvio Von Lichtenstein....
Just when I'm ready to throw in my hand
Just when the best things in life are gone
I look into your eyes, uh, uh

There's no smoke without fire, uh, uh
You're exactly who I want to be with, uh, uh
Without you
What would I do

And when I'm willing to call it a day
Just when I won't take another chance
I hold your hand, uh, uh
There's no smoke without fire, uh, uh
Woman I love you, uh, uh
Without you
What would I do

    General CommentSome say that Let's Dance is Bowie's most "heterosexual" album. This is because the cover portrays him in a "masculine" boxing pose in boxing gloves, and there are few homoerotic or androgynist references in the lyrics. But bowie has said before that he was a "closeted" straight man. It's funny in our culture that it's even possible to be a closeted straight man. Anyway, because of this comment from the artist, I think that Let's Dance is an album he made when he had reached a certain level of self-esteem, because there is such little acting on it. He has often said he felt more like an actor portraying a singer than a singer that added acting into the performance. I think that Let's Dance was an album made when he reached a certain level of honesty that he had not attained before. He had seen what "fame" was and abandoned it for a simpler album. And as much as I LOVE the theatrics of the Ziggy Stardust era, I find the non intellectual emotionalism of the Let's Dance album refreshing.
