I'm just an old man
How could I understand
I'm just an old man
How could I understand

I remember danger when the strangers came
They, they knew my name
They seemed to know my, my neighbors
So I gave them safety in my home

Then there was a, a pounding sound
And screaming voices all around
I offered them my, my daughters
Then a light, a light came from the, the strangers' skin
They said we had to go away
My wife was worried they, they

I'm just an old man
How could I understand, yes

Fire fell from the sky
And tears fell from my eyes
Fire fell from the sky
Tears fell, fell from my eyes

Turned to stone like a bone
Or maybe salt had hardened on her
I was lonely for my wife, oh
It only ever happened once or twice, yes

I'm just an old man
How could I understand, yes
I'm just an old man
Who just can't stand his memories
