Lyrics

I don't know why I thought of you
Or why you came to mind
It's been a long time since we went our ways
Since our lives became untwined
I must have heard your name somewhere
Now you're back inside my mind
I don't where you are - but could you be that hard to find?

Friend requests and update posts
Things I had to know
But your real-time, real-life living
Kept your online profile low
I searched for your existence
But the searches came back no
I had to keep on on trying though progress was slow

I'm looking through life's window, reflecting on the view
Reflecting on my choices
I remember me and you
Looking through life's window, reflecting on the view
Remembering I couldn't bear...
I couldn't bear to be apart from you

I found someone who shares your name
Whose wall is not discreet
I imagine that I see you and your smile is still as sweet
All your friends and family are there for all to view
I click on every picture until I'm looking at you

I'm looking through life's window, reflecting on the view
Reflecting on my choices
I remember me and you
Looking through life's window, reflecting on the view
Remembering I couldn't bear...
I couldn't bear to be apart from you

And there you are, surrounded by your domesticy
You are older, true, but something's wrong
You don't seem the same to me
Your life was pre-ordained – and I could never walk that path
And you could never spread your wings
Your eyes have lost their spark

The rush I feel on seeing you erases all those years
The pain of unrequited love; the pain of lonely tears
And I'm so glad I had the strength of mind to walk away
But even so I'm glad I glimpsed into your world today

I'm looking through life's window, reflecting on the view
Reflecting on my choices
I remember me and you
