Were We Strangers When


Were we strangers when:
We lied at times alone?
Were we strangers when:
We claimed all love our own?

Were we strangers when:
We upfront all boundaries broke?
Were we strangers when:
We for long did failure provoke?

Were we strangers when:
We to love lost our hearts and senses too?
Were we strangers when:
We swore to make it the whole life through?

Were we strangers when:
We walked hand in hand in more than a rocky road?
Were we strangers when:
We stood in the face of fear and in stranger lands trod?

Were we strangers when:
We made many promises to never part?
Were we strangers when:
We found our hearts amidst one heart?

Were we strangers when:
We stopped paying attention to what's being said?
Were we strangers when:
We used to dream alway as dreams can't be dead?

Were we strangers when:
We smiled and laughed and moaned and cried?
Were we strangers when:
We abided by benevolence and stepped on pride?

Were we strangers when:
We to joy find flew so high?
Were we strangers when:
We never had to say goodbye?

Were we strangers when:
We let our guards deep down decline?
Were we strangers when:
We had a talk to names define?

Were we strangers when:
We kissed time and time again?
Were we strangers when:
We such heat ahead did ken?

Were we strangers when:
We did shine in the darkest dark?
Were we strangers when:
We did sparkle as is a spark?

Are we strangers if:
We said so long to love tonight?
Are we strangers if:
We lied that all would be alright?

Are we strangers if:
We gave up on all hopes and dreams?
Are we strangers if:
We could no more just see what gleams?

Are we strangers now?
As we by each other just pass!
Are we stranges now?
As all we had is gone alas!

Are we strangers now?
As in opposite ways away we ran!
We are strangers now:
As we're just right where we began.
