  • I thought I met a man
    Who said he knew a man
    Who knew what was going on
    I was mistaken

    Only another stranger that I knew, mmh

    I thought I found a light
    To guide me through the night
    The darkness
    I was mistaken

    Only reflections of a shadow that I saw, mmh

    I thought I'd seen someone
    Who seemed at last
    To know the truth
    I was mistaken

    Only a child laughing in the sun, mmh
    Ahh, in the sun Writer/s: David Crosby
