Cactus Lyrics

Artist: David Bowie
Album: Heathen

Sitting here wishing on a cement floor
Just wishing that I had just something you wore
I put it on when I go lonely
Will you take off your dress and send it to me?

I miss your kissing and I miss your head
And a letter in your writing doesn't mean you're not dead
Just run outside in the desert heat
Make your dress all wet and send it to me

I miss your soup and I miss your bread
And a letter in your writing doesn't mean you're not dead
So spill your breakfast and drip your wine
Just wear that dress when you dine

D - A - V - I - D

Sitting here wishing on a cement floor
Just wishing that I had just something you wore
So bloody your hands on a cactus tree
Wipe it on your dress and send it to me

Sitting here wishing on a cement floor
Just wishing that I had just something you wore

I've thought for years he was singing 'Semen floor' rather than 'cement floor'. Cement obviously works better, although given what he's thinking about 'semen floor' would also be appropriate.

Well in britain we pronounce cement like SEH-ment (is it pronounced differently elsewhere?)- so it does sound very like semen...
