my lyricsbox
"I went to see the sign"
The sailor and the sailor said
"Do not forget my face
My friend, for if you do, I'm dead"

"Well, I don't see how that
Could be," I said to him as well
As picking off a piece
Of paper stuck to my lapel
The sailor fell upon his knees
And then he fell beside
The cedar chest that he had carved
And then I think he died
"Well, this was curious," I thought
And so I wandered in
And saw that there was something written
On his wrinkled skin

I thought the thoughts of little children
And the thoughts of men
I thought the thoughts of stupid people
Who have never been
So much in love as they should be
And got confused too easily
To fall in love again

To fall in love again
To fall in love again
To fall in love again
To fall in love again

And so I say goodbye to you
And hope that maybe someday soon
We will meet again up there
For friends are fair and death is, too
