C Em F Dm
Once I walked through the halls of a station
G C7
Someone called your name
C Em F Dm
In the street I heard children laughing
G C7
They all sound the same
C F
Wonder, could you ever know me
C G
Know the reason why I live
C F
Is there nothing you can show me
Eb F/G C
Life seems so little to give

Once I climbed up the face of a mountain
And ate the wild fruit there
Fell asleep until the moonlight woke me
And I could taste your hair
Isn't everybody dreaming!
Then the voice I hear is real
Out of all the idle scheming
Can't we have something to feel

Once upon a time leaves me empty
Tomorrow never comes
I could sing the sound of your laughter
Still I don't know your name
Must be some way to repay you
Out of all the good you gave
If a rumour should delay you
Love seems so little to save
