about

This isn't sung directly TO a person, but rather ABOUT a person in the form of being addressed to him. It's not so confusing when you imagine talking to a picture.

lyrics

Time seems to wave goodbye to the past
But what does time hold for a man like me?
I’ve little to lose and nothing to gain
And all I have now are these memories

Lost in a cascade of my dreams
From long ago until today
The friends I made in my youth
Have long since drifted away

Why does it have to happen?
Why did it happen to us?
Why can’t the hour glass let us be?
Why can’t the sundial turn to dust?

Seems I remember you from just yesterday
You must be the friend I knew long ago
Aren’t you the one I met as a child?
I believe what I believe ‘cause I know
I believe what I believe 'cause it's so

In years gone by I’ve questioned creation
But the answer was as easy as Pi
All life’s legacy is a circle
We shall all live life and then die

Why does it have to happen?
Why did it happen to us?
Why can’t the hour glass let us be?
Why can’t the sundial turn to dust?

Seems I remember you from just yesterday
You must be the friend I knew long ago
Aren’t you the one I met as a child?
I believe what I believe ‘cause I know
I believe what I believe 'cause it's so
