    "The Greatest Man I Never Knew" Lyrics

    Michael Ball

    The greatest man I never knew
    Lived just down the hall
    And everyday we said hello
    But never touched at all
    He was in his paper
    I was in my room
    How was I to know he thought I touched the moon

    The greatest man I never knew
    Came home late every night
    He never had too much to say
    Too much was on his mind

    I never really knew him
    And now it seems so sad
    Everything he gave to us took all he had

    And the days turned into years
    And the memories to black and white
    He grew cold like an old winter wind
    Blowing across my life

    The greatest words I never heard
    I guess I'll never hear
    The man I thought could never die
    Has been gone almost a year

    He was good at business
    But there was business left to do
    He never said he loved me
    I guess he thought I knew
