We passed upon the stair
Although I wasn't there
Which came as some surprise
I thought you died alone

I never lost control
With the man who sold the world
I laughed and shook his hand
I searched for form and land
I gazed a gazley stare
We must have died alone

Not me
You're face to face

Not me
You're face to face
