“The Greatest Story Ever Told” Lyrics

It seems like only yesterday
I waved goodbye to my dad, and I travelled so far away
I saw the world
I saw the lights

I’ve played the pauper, and I played the prince
I’ve played the fool in school, and I haven’t stopped playing since
I’ve done it all
From A to Z
And I wanna be free

All my life is just a stage I’m going through
The director has written lines for me and you
And we must act accordingly

All I know
We are the greatest story ever told
And we’ll never grow old
We just pan away
Fade to white

I got a job in a video band
We had ’em eating corn flakes out of the palm of our hands
They said we couldn’t sing
They said we didn’t play
But we were not free

All our life is just a stage we’re going through
The director has written lines for me and you
And we must act accordingly

All I know
We are the greatest story ever told
And we never grow old
We just pan away
And fade to light

I’ve been the lover in so many scenes
I play the part so well, but I’m still not sure what it means
’Cause the only time it makes any sense
Is when it’s just you and me
Then I’m free
