                    Ab   
We passed upon the stair,
                         C#m
we spoke in was and when    
                  Ab    
Although I wasn't there,
                         E
he said I was his friend  
                    B                      Ab  
Which came as a surprise, I spoke into his eyes
                   C#m                      B 
I thought you died alone, a long long time ago

                        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,
                    Ab   
we walked a million hills
                 C#m   
I must have died alone,
                  B 
a long long time ago
