Why would he come back through the park?
You thought that you saw him, but no you did not
It's not him who'd come across the sea to surprise you
Not him who would know where in London to find you

With a sadness so real that it populates
The city and leaves you homeless again
Steam from a cup and snow on the path
The seasons have changed from the present to past
The past

From whole to half
The past

Why would you think your boy would become
The man who could make you sure he was the one?
The one
My one

    General CommentThis is one of Leslie Feist's songs from her album, "the Reminder."
    Even though Justin covered it, I don't think the lyrics should be under Bon Iver on this site.

    General CommentHaving heard both versions of this, I have to say I love them both but prefer Bon Iver's version, his voice is just beautiful on this. Amazing.
