(lyrics by Pete Townshend)

I'm a billion ages past you
A million years behind you too
A thousand miles up in the air
a trillion times I've seen you there

Your hair is golden mine is gray
You walk on grass it turns to hay
Your blood is blue and your eyes are red
My body strains but the nerves are dead.

I can't reach you - with arms outstretched
I can't reach you - I crane my neck
I can't reach, try to get on you, see, feel or hear from you

The distances grow greater now
You drink champaign and ask me how
You fly your planes right over my head
You're so alive and I'm nearly dead

I can't reach you - with arms outstretched
I can't reach you - I crane my neck
I can't reach, try to get on you, see, feel or hear from you

Once I caught a glimpse of your unguarded, untouched thoughts
Our fingertips touched and then, my mind tore us apart

I can't reach you - with arms outstretched
I can't reach you - I crane my neck
I can't reach, try to get on you, see, feel or hear from you
from you
