Verse 1 :  the boy

God that was strange to see you again
Introduced by a friend of a friend
Smiled and said “yes, I think we’ve met before”
In that instant it started to pour
Captured a taxi despite all the rain
We drove in silence across Pont Champlain
And all of that time you thought I was sad
I was trying to remember your name

Verse 2:  the girl

This scar is a fleck on my porcelain skin
You tried to reach deep but you couldn’t get in
And now you’re outside me, you see all the beauty
Repent all your sin
It’s nothing but time and a face that you’ll lose
I chose to feel it and you couldn’t choose
I’ll write you a postcard, I’ll send you the news
From the house down the road from real love

Verse 3:  the girl

There’s one thing I meant to say, so I’ll be brave
You were what I wanted
I gave what I gave
I’m not sorry I met you
I’m not sorry it’s over
I’m not sorry there’s nothing to save

And to think they sang it all to make sense of just this one thing.

Live through this and you wont look back…
