When I saw you,
Tears running down your face,
You were lost in time
And you'd lost your place
And I knew... wherever you'd been
However you'd sinned
I'd see you through

When I saw you
And the world was wrong
You'd forgotten your dream
And you'd lost your song

Under the moon
When the streetlights were on
And your lover was gone
But the year was new

When I saw you
Your sorrow in your hand
Afraid to turn your head
And afraid to stand
When I saw you
In an ocean of sand
In a huge hourglass
And the sand had passed through

When I saw you
By the side of the Seine
And the streetlights talked
By the river again
As the wind blew
Through your long flowing hair
The river whispered its truth
I was so glad to be there

When I saw you

When I saw you.
