Weekly Tunes EP8 - The Man Who Sold The World - Nirvana

"The Man Who Sold the World" is a song that was originally sung by David Bowie, who is known as one of the most influential musicians of the 20th century. This song was later reintroduced by Nirvana, an American rock band in 1993, and is the version that we listen to today.
 
Lyrics:
We passed upon the stair
We spoke of 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 form and land
For years and years I roamed
I gazed a gazeless stare
We walked 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
