We passed upon the stair,
                         
C#m
we spoke in was and when    
                  
Ab    
Although I wasn't there,

he said I was his friend  
                    
B                      
Ab  
Which came as a surprise, I spoke into his eyes

Ab   
I laughed and shook his hand,
                         
C#m
and made my way back home   
                         
Ab   
I searched for a foreign land,
                             
E
for years and years I roamed  
                    
B    
I gazed a gazeless stare,

C#m   
I must have died alone,
