Intro: | A | A | Dm | Dm | F | F | Dm
 
                   A7                             Dm
We passed upon the stair, we spoke of was and when
                    A7                           F
Although I wasn't there, he said I was his friend
                        C                     A7
Which came as some surprise. I spoke into his eyes
                    Dm                        C
I thought you died alone, a long, long time ago
 
   C        F    Bbm             F
Oh no, not me, I never lost control
        C       F            Bbm
You're face to face with the man who sold the world
 
| A | A | Dm | Dm | F | F | Dm
 
                        A7                            Dm
I laughed and shook his hand and made my way back home
                         A7                               F
I searched for form and land, for years and years I roamed
                   C                       A7
I gazed a gazely stare at all the millions here
                   Dm                        C
We must have died alone, a long, long time ago
 
    C           F     Bbm             F
Who knows, not me, we never lost control
        C       F            Bbm
You're face to face with the man who sold the world
 
| A | A | Dm | Dm | F | F | Dm | Dm |
 
    C           F     Bbm             F
Who knows, not me, we never lost control
        C       F            Bbm
You're face to face with the man who sold the world
 
| A | A | Dm | Dm | F | F | Dm | Dm | (repeat and fade)
