A thousand times I have seen you, seen you in my mind’s eye.
Once upon a time you were there, for real, but not now, ever
When you went away my world crumbled and all is ruined, dust
Where did you go? So far away I could not see or hear you.

A thousand times I have seen you, seen you in my mind’s eye.
the memory begins to fade, was any of it true, I need to know
The pieces do not fit anymore, the glue doesn’t hold.
Where did you go? So far away I could not see or hear you.

A thousand times I have seen you, seen you in my mind’s eye.
I’ll never know the answer, you are gone the dream is broken
If only you were not real, if you were only in my mind’s eye
Why did you go? So far away I could not see or hear you.
