The Man Who Sold The World Lyrics

We passed upon the stairs
Spoken was and when
Although I wasn't there
He said, "I was his friend"
Which came as a surprise
I spoke into his eyes
I thought you died alone
A long long time ago

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

I laughed and shook his hand
And made my way back home
I searched for farming land
Years and years I roamed
I gazed a gazer stare
We marked a million hills
I must have died alone
A long long time ago

Who knows?
Not me
I never lost control
You're face, to face
With the man who sold the world

Who knows?
Not me
We never lost control
You're face, to face
With the man who sold the world

I love Nirvana but their songs depresses me. I go into depression lol but sometimes they are good. Emotionally distraught people should give them a listen.

Awesome song by Bowie, Nirvana's cover on MTV Unplugged was INTENSE though, his voice is just so freaking amazing. Even though I do love Bowie, I have to say Kurt Cobain's version is more my stylee.
