Lyrics


We passed upon the stair

We spoke of was and when

Although I wasn't there

He said I was his friend

Which came as a surprise

I spoke into his eyes

I thought you died alone

A long long time ago


Oh no, not me

We never lost control

You're face to face

With the man who sold the world


I laughed and shook his hand

And made my way back home

I searched for form and land

For years and years I roamed

I gazed a gazeless stare

We marked a million hills

I must have died alone

A long, long time ago


Who knows?

Not me

I never lost control

You're face to face

With the man who sold the world


Who knows?

Not me

We never lost control

You're face to face

With the man who sold the world
