"Where Were You" as written by and Sufjan Stevens....
Where, oh where was I
At springtime when you realized
That love caught you by surprise?

And where, oh where, was I
That November when your father died?
What's the first thought that came over your mind
As you drove home?

And where, oh where, were you
Back in high school when I was broken in two
And my mother and my father ?
I felt so confused
Yeah, I was so confused

And where, oh where, was I
That day you scraped your knee and cried
And your bother carried you inside
All the way home?

I was so confused, I was so confused
All the way home

Here I am outside
Can you hear me?
Can you see me?
Can you feel me?
I'm high as a rooftop, now

Here I am outside
Can you hear me?
Can you see me?
Can you feel me?
I'm high as a rooftop, now

Here I am outside
Can you hear me?
Can you see me?
Can you feel me?
I'm high as a rooftop, now

Here I am outside
Can you hear me?
Can you see me?
Can you feel me?
I'm high as a rooftop, now
