We passed upon the stare
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 walk millions hills
I must have died alone (Alt: I must have died along)
A long, long time ago


(x2)
Who knows?
Not me
We never lost control
You're face to face
With the Man who Sold the World
