I know that I don't know you, and you couldn't know me,
But time and space collided and here we are, here we are.

I know that you don't understand, and I can't explain,
But circumstance conspired and here we are, here we are.

And I know we can't turn back all the years.
Time reflected in a shade of grey.
But I often wonder what could have been,
And I still hold on to yesterday.

And I know we're not children anymore,
Innocence lost in a sea of grey.
But I often wonder what else could be,
And I still dream of running away.

So where do we begin, and what else can we say?
When the lines are all drawn, what should we do today?
