And this face you used to know?
The cheeks you pinched, the lips you kissed
The big eyes that used to glow
Remember when we used to lie down
And just held each other close
And you’d smile at me
And touch my face
The one you used to know
We’d speak of things, of hopes and dreams
That we’d tell no one else
And we’d reveal things, secrets and schemes
Hidden in our mind’s shelves
But that’s all just a memory
A long-lost recollection
Do you ever wonder about me?
When you take a moment to remember?
All those times, all those days
Those Aprils and Decembers
From then on, it went wrong
As did our lives apart
When you hear our song do you sing along?
It had to end, because it had a start
When you smell the perfume I used to wear
Do you spare a thought for me?
And when you walk in the park, after dark,
Do you remember being with me?
Did it all just fade fast away?
Did you move on quickly?
Does another girl make you smile?
Do you share laughter with her?
Do you keep her warm, and hold her as close
As you’d shave, like you once did with me?
Bet you don’t give her piggy-back rides
Or kiss her upside down
You don’t sneak chocolate kisses in her pockets
Or in the summer pretend to drown
I know you wouldn’t sing to her
Or dance with her without music
Like we did that one extra beautiful night
Alone in the gym, after the dance
The day you stole my heart and never gave it back
Oh, I know you don’t make her your special milkshakes
Or take her horse-back riding
Or bring her out to the beach
And romance her as the sun goes down
Like you did once upon a time with me
Sometimes I wish
Those memories were right now, once again
Oh, stranger, what I would give for you
To be holding me
In your arms, in your heart
Once again, not so strange
