Bonnie Prince Billy – I've Seen It All lyrics

I've seen it all
I have seen the trees
I have seen the willow leaves
Dancing in the breeze

I've seen a man killed
By his best friend
And lives that were over
Before they were spent

I've seen what I was
And I know what I'll be
I've seen it all
There is no more to see

You haven't seen elephants
Kings or Peru
I'm happy to say
I had better to do

What about China?
Have you seen the Great Wall?
All walls are great
If the roof doesn't fall

And the man you will marry
The home you will share
To be honest
I really don't care

You've never been
To Niagara Falls
But I have seen water
It's water, that's all

The Eiffel Tower
And the Empire State
My pulse was as high
On my very first date

Your grandson's hand
As he plays with your hair
To be honest
I really don't care

I've seen it all
I've seen the dark
I've seen the brightness
In one little spark

I've seen what I chose
And I've seen what I need
And all that's enough
To want more would be greed

I've seen what I was
And I know what I'll be
I've seen it all
There is no more to see

The light and the dark
The big and the small
Just keep in mind
You need no more at all

You've seen what you were
And know what you'll be
You've seen it all
Then there's no more to see
