What a time it was,
I was befriended and was a friend
for the longest while. You were here,
and I never knew you from the sun
Snow is on the ground
but this is not my landscape now,
where I find myself without you.
I never knew you from the sun.
Oh I had a friend. I had a friend I loved.
Now I walk for miles
into dark forests of piano songs. I'm lost.
Deep into my sleeves, deep in my sleeves,
pockets down where I always reach,
you are there.
Oh I never knew you from the sun,
never, never knew you from the sun.
