GREGG ALLMAN lyrics - Once I Was

GREGG ALLMAN
"Once I Was"
(Larry Beckett, Tim Buckley)

[Tim Buckley cover]

Once I was a soldier
And I fought on foreign sands for you
Once I was a hunter
And I brought home fresh meat for you
And once I was a lover
And I gazed behind your eyes for you
And soon there'll be another
To tell you I was just a lie

But sometimes I wonder
Just for a while
Do you ever remember me?

Sometimes I wonder
Just for a while
Do you ever think of me?

And though you have forgotten
All of our rubbish dreams
I find myself searching
Through the ashes of our ruins
For the days when we smiled
And the hours that ran wild
The silence of our words
With the magic of our smile

Sometimes I wonder
Just for a while
Do you ever think of me?
Ever
Think of me
