  • I saw you again, it felt like we had never met
    It's like the sun set in your eyes and never wanted to rise
    And what have you done with the one I love?
    When I look into your eyes, I see no surprise

    I always thought it was sad
    The way we act like strangers
    After all that we had
    We act like we had never met

    We make believe, I've never seen your face, you neither mine
    And catch my eye, don't register a smile
    You were more than just a friend, oh but the feeling
    It never came to an end, I can't bear to see you

    I always thought it was a shame
    That we have to play these games
    It felt like you really knew me
    Now it feels like you see through me

    When I see you again
    I'll know not to expect
    Stay one step away
    We will have to wait

    When I see you again
    And I'm greeted as a friend
    It is understood
    That we did all we could

    I always thought it was sad
    The way we act like strangers
    After all that we had
    We act like we had never met

    I always thought it was a shame
    That we have to play these games
    It felt like you really knew me
    Now it feels like you see through me Writer/s: James Thomas Smith, Oliver David Sim, Romy Anna Madley Croft
