How is it possible

Driving down on the road one day
Trying get home to L.A.
I pulled off into a little town
It seemed no onewas around
Who could help me, 'cause I'd lost my way.
Finally I saw an older man
Sitting on a bench by the road
I asked him if he knew the way
But all he had to say
Was yes, friend, but you won't understand.
How is it possible - Everything has come to pass
How is it possible - That I ever feared
How is it possible - I ask again again
That everything I ever had, has disappeared
I've often thought of my old friend
And always felt powerless to help
Many years have passed since then
And still I ask myself.
