David Bowie is brilliant, Jim Henson was brilliant, I’m suddenly 10 years old and going to some now-forgotten girl’s basement sleepover party–it’s Labyrinth! I have to confess I own the soundtrack, and the track during the ballroom scene is actually pretty fab, as far as lyrics go. Here, I’ll share them!

“There’s such a sad love

Deep in your eyes, a kind of pale jewel

Open and closed within your eyes

I’ll place the sky within your eyes

There’s such a fooled heart
Beating so fast in search of new dreams

A love that will last within your heart

I’ll place the moon within your heart

As the pain sweeps through
Makes no sense for you
Every thrill has gone

Wasn’t too much fun at all

But I’ll be there for you-oo-oo
As the world falls down


Falling down

Falling in love

I’ll paint you mornings of gold
I’ll spin you valentine evenings
Though we’re strangers till now

We’re choosing the path between the stars

I’ll lay my love between the stars…”

And then you repeat the chorus a few times while some Muppets dance around. Anyway, you have to love lyrics that spell out the “you-oo-oo’s” and remind you of when you were 10. Especially when sung by David Bowie.
