Dear Stranger

 

It wasn't easy to pack those bags
It wasn't easy to walk away
But I've had the distance to sort myself out
And a better man stands here today

Yet I hope you'll have a straight answer
If he asks had I loved you well
But you wouldn't dare lie straight in bed
With the stories you could tell

Do you sometimes think of me?
Do you think of me?

Yes, I was walking in circles
Seems I was wearing two left shoes
But in those dreams I learned to let you go
And that everyone must someday lose

Do you sometimes think of me?
Do you think of me?

After time has had its way with us
Our wrinkles, they will laugh
At all the mistakes we had to make for ourselves
In the short time that we had

Do you sometimes think of me?
Do you think of me?
