  • At the edge of the world
    Where you were no one
    Yet you were the girl
    The only one
    At the edge of the world
    In the desert heat
    One shivering star
    Sweet indiscreet

    I knew you
    When we were young
    I knew you
    Now you're gone

    In a little Narcissus pool
    Drawn by its spell
    We saw ourselves
    Raw excitable
    I knew you
    When we were young
    I knew you
    Now you're gone

    We didn't know
    The precariousness
    Of our young powers
    All the emptiness

    Wild,wild hair
    Sad,sad eyes
    White shirt black tie
    You were mine

    You grabbed the ring
    Of the carousel
    From Heaven to Hell
    I knew you Writer/s: PATTI SMITH, TONY SHANAHAN
