Who saw those dark eyes
Who saw those dark eyes
These years gone by
Deep within
Burn my skin
All those years gone by
On the darkest night
All those years gone by

Who felt those cold hands
Who felt those cold hands
Touch my skin
Deep within
Burn my soul
Fell to the ground where I was found
All those years ago, all those tears ago
All those years ago

Everybody makes mistakes
Everybody makes mistakes
Even me
Just be free
This is a place where in the end
It happens in our world within

Time to go
Time to go
Time to go

    General CommentIn a similar way, I always view this song as not about rape but child abuse. The reference to "all those years ago" suggest it was something that happened a long time in the past.

    I've seen very early live versions of this song that had the lyric "Who killed my father?"...which fits the child abuse theme, and suggests the song was originally going to be more obvious and explicit.
