I've seen it all
I have seen the trees
I've seen the willow leaves
Dancing in the breeze

I've seen a man killed by his best friend
And lives that were over before they were spent

I've seen what I was and
I know what I'll be
I've seen it all
There is no more to see

You haven't seen elephants, kings or Peru!
I'm happy to say I had better to do
What about China? Have you seen the Great Wall?
All walls are great, if the roof doesn't fall !

And the man you will marry?
The home you will share?
To be honest, I really don't care...

You've never been to Niagara Falls?
I have seen water, its water, that's all...
The Eiffel Tower, the Empire State?
My pulse was as high on my very first date!
Your grandson's hand as he plays with your hair?
To be honest, I really don't care...

I've seen iit all
I've seen the dark
I've seen the brightness in one little spark
I've seen what I chose and
I've seen what I need and that is enough
To want more would be greed

I've seen what I was and
I know what I'll be
I've seen it all
There is no more to see

You've seen what you were and
You know what you'll be
You've seen it all
There is no more to see

    General CommentDoes anyone know the spoken part to this in the middle.

    I can make out:
    To be honest I really don't care
    something
    something
    the eiffel tower, the empire state
    close mothas(?) high (?) on our very first date
    Your grandsons hand as he plays with your hair
    To be honest I really don't care

    Sorry for the bad attempt, but help?

    General CommentWhile Yorke sounds rather calm, it's almost as though she is spitting out the words in disgust
