You spent the night last night
and we stayed up late talking
and listening to Bauhaus.

You said I needed to change
but not too much because
then you wouldn't recognize me.

And I asked you what you meant
but you just shook your head
and turned out the lights.

Ten minutes later
when I thought you were asleep
you whispered, causing me to jump

"Don't become like Ziggy Stardust."
