I Saw You

history . . . . .
when i saw you on the street
i knew that i should speak
i didn't know what to say

you'd have known my face
still you'd try to place
my name, anyway

i remember when i'd play my songs
you'd sing along
but that was yesterday

older, not wiser they say
even when i try to think
i just don't have a clue
all my searching and rehearsing all my trying
brings me back to you

it was not that long ago
i tried to show just what a man i was to be

but when i cared for you
i felt that through it i would stop
caring for me

in my private place i had to face and know the trace
of self was there to see

older not wiser they say
even when i try to think
i just don't have a clue
all my searching and rehearsing
all my lying
brings me back to you

now i watch you slowly pass
it's perhaps the last time i'll see your face
it was just so long ago and you will never know
there is still a trace

of the love i had
it still makes me sad
that we are in a different place

older not wiser they say
even when i try to think
i just don't have a clue
all my searching and rehearsing
all my crying
brings me back to you
