Turned on some music to start my day

I lost myself in a familiar song

I closed my eyes and I slipped away

I don't believe where I've been
Come on, let's do it again

When you're standing before me
With tears in your eyes
Trying to tell me that you have found you another

Was a good friend of mine

But I helped him drink his wine
And he always had some mighty fine wine

With the rain in Shambala

Wash away my sorrow, wash away my shame

And his feet were sore, he was tired

And he rested

And he lay in the cool

And while he rested, he took to himself an orange and tasted it

And it was good
