 Listen to the song from the video and write the past tense of the verbs in parentheses. Be careful, there may be negative forms.
  
We (pass)    upon the stair, we (speak)  of was and when 
Although I (be)  there, he (say)  I was his friend 
Which (come)  as a surprise I (speak)  into his eyes 
I (think)  you died alone, a long long time ago 

Oh no, not me 
We never (lose)  control 
You're face to face 
With the man who (sell)  the world 

I (leave) and (shake)  his hand, and   (make)  my way back home 
I (search)  for form and land, for years and years I  (roam)
I (gaze)   a gazley stare with more than millions here 
 
We must have died along, a long long time ago 

Who knows? Not me

I never (lose)  control
 
You're face to face
 
With the man who (sell)  the world.
 
 
Now put the verbs in two lists: Regular and irregular, and write their meaning in Spanish.
