We passed upon those stairs
We spoke of was and when
Although I wasn't there
He said, "I was his friend"

Which came as some surprise
I spoke into his eyes
I thought, you died alone
A long, long time ago

Oh no, not me
I never lost control
You're face, to face
With the man who sold the world

I laughed and shook his hand
Made my way back home
I searched for foreign land
For years and years I roamed

I gazed a gazely stare
To all the millions there
We must have died alone
A long, long time ago

Oh no, not me
I never lost control
You're face, to face
With the man who sold the world

Oh no, not me
I never lost control
You're face, to face
With the man who sold the world

Songwriters
BOWIE, DAVID
