You and I were meant to meet each other
But just in passing
Just a glimpse
Not even to really get to know one another.
I know your name
But you might never know mine.
I’ll be that familiar face you’ve seen from somewhere
But that’s all I will ever be.
You and I were destined to meet each other
But not meant to be together.
You can’t find the words to describe me.
I am known and unknown to you.
I am a familiar face and a stranger at the same time.
You think you know me but you are doubtful.
You look for the slightest touch of familiarity but it’s not there.
You stare and wonder and ask yourself
“Who is she?”
He stared and so did I
Familiar in many ways yet unfamiliar in between
Somewhere we might have crossed paths
In a place familiar and the same
But my mind can’t find where.
We stared at each other
Transfixed for a moment
Everything that seemed familiar never came
I don’t sense it
I don’t feel it
Or see it
Perhaps the spark they see is the unseen connection that two people have
One that does not have to be a romantic tie
But one close to friendship and familiarity
I believe that is what we have
It’s been a while
I haven’t seen you for so long
All of a sudden I dream of you
Everything was vaguely familiar
You had the smile just like in high school
I was in awe
Just like before
Yet you felt very comforting
I loved that about you
Then I woke
If you might be the ultimate crush
I breathed the air
It was unfamiliar
The wind was foreign to me
The place was well known
Yet unknown as well
To me it was a mystery
My feet took me to a place far
But I did not want to return
I wanted to stay lost and never be found
This place I can all my own
Oh my, my, my
Here I go again falling
For sure I may cry, cry, cry
But still to you I am calling
The road is familiar
I know you don’t feel the same
The scene is similar
It’s the same game
Different person but same feeling
I guess I’ll never learn
Because even if I fall to the ceiling
I’ll fall in love all over again
Oh! You look so familiar.
Somewhere, somehow, I think we’ve met before
This feeling, this feeling
this feeling’s so familiar
Yet I don’t know if it’s just my imagination
