You've heard this story told before
You've heard this story told four times before
But here it is again for you
It's clear and simple, beautiful and true

I have a little girl I love
She fell asleep I thought it was more than it was
And I'd heard a story about a man
I thought if this is true then he is her last chance
I put her life in his hands

But I didn't know his name
I didn't know his name

I found him and I grabbed his hand
I found him and I hoped he'd understand
But just as we were about to go
He turned 'cause someone sick had touched his coat
And so I stood there waiting patiently
While he wasted time talking to this old lady
And then walked in a friend of mine he said
I'm sorry you might as well leave him behind
Not long ago your daughter died

But I didn't know his name
Still didn't know his name
I didn't know his name
Or why he followed me home

He said she's only sleeping
Soon everyone was leaving
And then all I heard him say
Was talitha k
Was talitha K
Was talitha K

Did I tell you his name
Did I tell you his name
Do you know his name
Or why he came
