Nobody knows what human life is

Why we come, why we go So why then do I know I will see you I will see you in far off places?

The heart knows why I grieve And yes, one day I Will close my eyes forever But I will see you I will see you in far off places

It's so easy for us to sit together But it's so hard for our hearts to combine And why? And why, why, why, why, why, why, why?

Destiny for some is to save lives But destiny for some is to end lives But there is no end And I will see you in far off places

If your God bestows protection upon you And if the USA doesn't bomb you I believe I will see you Somewhere safe Looking to the camera Messing around and pulling faces
