I was standing by the ocean when I saw your face I couldn't look at you
I guess you knew it but I never realized that we were through
That we were through

And now I'm down here all alone with every feeling that I own you can't take that away
And with every breath we take and the illusions we create will come to you someday
Will come to you someday

And I was touched
By the hand of god
Never knew it but I killed someone

I never hoped to do the things in this world I wanted to
Because everything I own it belongs to you
It belongs to you

I’ve never looked at you in a sexual way in my life before
And I've never woken up like this so desperately before
Desperately before

And I was touched
By the hand of god
Never knew it but I killed someone

I was touched by the hand of god
Never knew it but I killed someone
I was touched

By the hand of god
Never knew it but I killed someone
Touched by the hand of god
Never knew it but I killed someone

Touched by the hand of god
Never knew it but I killed someone
I was touched
By the hand of god
Never knew it but I killed someone
I was touched
