i know we're just like old friends
we just can't pretend
that lovers make amends
we are reasons so unreal
we can't help but feel that something has been lost

but please you know you're just like me
next time i promise we'll be perfect

perfect strangers down the line
lovers out of time
memories unwind
so far i still know who you are
but now i wonder who I was

angel, you know it's not the end
we'll always be good friends
the letters have been sent on
so please, you always were so free
you'll see, i promise we'll be perfect

perfect strangers when we meet
strangers on the street
lovers while we sleep

you know this has to be
we always were so free
we promised that we'd be
