Well I was taking a stroll one day
When I happened upon a man
He was sitting all alone with all that he owned
And a coffee cup glued to his hand
His face was long drawn; his lips were in a frown
And his hair shined white in his eyes
He shivered, he sniffed, took a long drawn out sip
And he ignored all those that passed by

I ordered my food and I walked 'cross the room
To meet this foolish old man
I approached with a smile, he said "Hello, my child"
And he gently shook my hand
He said "Thanks for your kindness, your generous warmth
It seems nobody ever has the time
So have a seat and don't fear, because I'm anxious to hear
Whatever it is that's on your mind"

Old man, where did it fall apart
Old man, are you sitting there with broken heart
Old man, where did your life go wrong
Old man, why is your life gone

I was anxious to hear his story
It was something to do to pass the time
To learn about this guys fuck-ups
To learn from his mistakes and not mine
I can tell from his face he was someone once
A long, long time ago
He had a sparkle in his eye like a twinkle in the sky
But that sparkle ceased to glow
