[Verse]
                     A                     Dm
We passed upon the stair spoke of was and when
                    A                       F
Although I wasn't there he said I was his friend
                   C                       A
Which came as a surprise I spoke into his eyes
                    Dm                    C5
I thought you died alone a long long time ago

[Verse 2]
                         A                         Dm
I laughed and shook his hand and made my way back home
                         A                          F
I searched for foreign land for years and years I roamed
                     C                         A
I gazed a gazeless stare we marched a million hills
                   Dm                    C5
I must have died alone a long long time ago
