In waves of people, you can lose your feet
You've got to stay hard to the ground
It gets so easy now to lose your way
When you're ever outward bound

Church bell ringing in the fading light
It stops you dead like a cold steel wall
The ghost of yesteryear is touching you
And is sure as God, you'll fall

And I see you and I see me
I see it all like it used to be

And all the reasons why it started out
They hit you hard with every bell
The choir practice in the empty hall
Is a sound that you know so well

Like something lost inside your overcoat
You find it later, by mistake
You lost it all, a thousand years ago
And you pray, it's not too late

And I see you and I see me
I see it all just like a diary
Yeah, I see you and I see me
I see it all like it used to be

I quote and write it in a diary
Now I remember everything
Yeah, I remember how it used to be
With every note that choirboys sings

And I see you and I see me
I see it all like a diary
