We meet inside the cafe
The air is thick like hospital
Choked by the gold on your finger
We were lovers

Bury the thoughts that resurface
Those hands were mine

And now our love has been forgotten
Like it was never there
We're just sitting here like strangers
You gave me yourself for just a little while
But it was you, it was really you

Staring into my coffee
It is not black just a shade of brown
Too scared to let our eyes meet
What will we see?

And now our love has been forgotten
Like it was never there
We're just sitting here like strangers
You gave me yourself for just a little while
But it was you, it was really you

And now our love has been forgotten
Like it was never there
We're just sitting here like strangers
You gave me yourself for just a little while
But it was you, it was really you

The space between us
Will not be beat
Oceans and past lives
We were lovers
