  • I know we're just like old friends
    We just can't pretend
    That lovers make amends
    We are reasons so unreal
    We can't help but feel that something has been lost

    But please you know you're just like me
    Next time I promise we'll be
    Perfect
    Perfect
    Perfect strangers down the line
    Lovers out of time
    Memories unwind

    So far I still know who you are
    But now I wonder who I was...

    Angel, you know it's not the end
    We'll always be good friends
    The letters have been sent on

    So please, you always were so free
    You'll see, I promise we'll be
    Perfect
    Perfect strangers when we meet
    Strangers on the street
    Lovers while we sleep

    Perfect
    You know this has to be
    We always we're so free
    We promised that we'd be
    Perfect
