Charles Manson – I Once Knew A Man lyrics
I once knew a man
So love he was to be
I once knew a man
Whose heart open you could see

Sadder than a dream
Is that he should pass us by
Sadder than the scheme
Is in the dreams within the sky

Lonelier than I
Could I ever dream of a place to go
Much further than before
Time as it seems would be passive
If it were knocking at your door

Why wonder why dream in a night
Why argue hate and fight
The love that grows in the hearts of the men that I see
Is happenin' is comin' home forever

In the path I should wander alone
And a dream would not be mine to say
And a dream no the dream
Never do more than it seems should I obey

The love in my heart says
Give yourself away
The love in my heart says
You're loose today

Now is forever lasting constant in the mind
Illusions with memories scheming at my end of the mind
All the time

One and one are one if you find
A man who's got to find
Of the man who lives behind the gun
Of the man that lives behind the gun

Where has his love gone and come from
He is your brother
He is your loved one
