    I thought I ...

    Hello,

    OMD, Shes leaving, song lyrics, 1981

    Thank you very much.

    He doesn't enunciate very clearly. I don't know what he's singing, though it could be "I thought I heard/I'll be dead again."

    Yes, but according to this one https://play.google.com/music/previe...=kp-songlyrics he says "all the dedicate".

    No, that one's not correct. It doesn't even make sense. He definitely says:

    I thought I heard, ah, but then again, the more we learn, the less we know

    I heard ah but then again too. Some of these lyrics sites are using software and can be inaccurate. All the dedicate strikes me as meaningless, even for a song lyric.
