When I Met You

  • You knew just everything
    But nothing at all
    Now the moon is dark
    Feels like pain again
    You could feel my breath
    You opened my eyes
    For I could not see
    When I met you

    When I met you (you're feeling again)
    I could not speak (you're drowning in pain)
    You opened my mouth (you're walking in mist)
    You opened my heart (you're living again)
    My spirit rose (she tore you down)
    The marks and stains (happens all the same)
    Could not exist (you were afraid)
    When I met you
    Now it's all the same (now it's all the same)
    It's all the same (it's all the same)
    The sun is gone (the sun is gone)
    It's all the same (it's all the same)
    But when I met you (but when I met you)
    When I met you (when I met you)
    When I met you (when I met you)
    When I met you (when I met you)

    When I met you
    You were afraid (when I met you)
    She stole your heart (when I met you)
    You don't understand (when I met you)
    Should be ashamed (when I met you)
    You should have walked (I was the walking dead)
    She tore you down (I was kicked in the head)
    She tore you down

    The edge had become
    The center of my world
    The seams of my life
    The streams of daydream
    Like the wounds of a friend
    Not the kiss of a foe
    The peck of a blackened eye
    A lie for the crown

    When I met you
    I could not speak
    How I met you
    Then I met you
    My spirit rose (you're feeling again)
    My kind of truth (you're drowning in pain)
    Could not exist (you are afraid)
    When I met you
    Now it's all the same (now it's all the same)
    It's all the same (it's all the same)
    The sun is gone (the sun is gone)
    It's all the same (it's all the same)
    But when I met you (but when I met you)
    When I met you (when I met you)
    When I met you (when I met you)
    When I met you (when I met you)

    When I met you (you were afraid)
    When I met you (she stole your heart)
    I was the walking dead (she tore you down)
    I was kicked in the head (she tore you down)
    It was such a time (when I met you)
    It was such a time (when I met you)
    I was crushed inside (when I met you)
    I was torn inside
    When I met you (when I met you)
    When I met you (when I met you)
    I was too insane (I was too insane)
    Could not trust a thing (could not trust a thing)
    I was off my head (I was off my head)
    I was filled with truth (I was filled with truth)
    It was not god's truth (it was not god's truth)
    Before I met you (before I met you)Writer/s: DAVID BOWIE
