Neil said so

“once you’re gone, you can’t ever come back”
is all Neil had to say
promised me rock and roll would never die
but what’s he know, anyway?

burned out basements and silver ships flyin
blurred visions in his head
left by all that sugar mountain tryin
stretched out on that big old bed

Just because Neil said so
Didn’t make it real
just because he told us
We thought we’d feel
just that way too.. didn’t you?

I saw the water rising in Cripple Creek,
but not the way he did
I jumped in; got myself all wet,
But I didn’t think it’d be like this

We saw the Devil, and the damage done
felt the spirit prick
like a compass spinning in everyone
and I’m glad it looks like this

Just because Neil said so
Didn’t make it real
just because he told us
We thought we’d feel
just that way too.. didn’t you?

    And in my mind

    All my changes were there." lyrics…Helpless: Neil Young
