There was a boy.
A very strange, enchanted boy.
They say he wandered very far,
Very far,
Over land and sea.
A little shy,
And sad of eye,
But very wise was he.
And then one day,
One magic day he passed my way.
And while we spoke of many things,
Fools and kings,
This he said to me:
The greatest thing
You'll ever learn
Is just to love
And be loved
In return.

    General CommentBOWIE RULES!!! But anyway, yeah, it was completely perfect for the movie (as were all the others). I love how it seems the whole movie was based on it, when it probably wasn't added til the end. And it's about what it says it's about so I'm not gonna bother typing it out.
