Familiar Strangers

VERSE 1
The geometry of bodies in the quiet sunlight places
I can hear the couple talking with their eyes
And I’m walking by so quickly, past the angle of their faces
I really want to stop and ask them why

CHORUS
Why do strangers look familiar, when I’ve only seen them once?
Is it memory that drifts across my mind?
Or is it wishful thinking that a loved one just appears
Speaks to me of old forgotten times?

VERSE 2
The past is just the present in a different set of clothes
Like a uniform you wear, but it never shows
Watch the changes coming, as the old becomes the new
Keep your heart wide open and be true

CHORUS

ENDING CHORUS
Why do strangers look familiar, when I’ve only seen them once?
Is it memory that drifts across my mind?
Or is it wishful thinking that a loved one just appears
Speaks to me of old forgotten times?
Or is it wishful thinking that a loved one just appears
Speaks to me of old forgotten times?
