"Hello Like Before" as written by and John Collins Bill Withers....
Hello like before
I'd never come here
If I'd known that you were here
I must admit though
That's it's nice to see you, dear
You look like you've been doing well

Hello like before
I hope we've grown
Cause we were only children then
For laughs I guess we both can say
I knew you when
But then again, that's kiss and tell

Hello like before
I guess it's different
Cause we know each other now
I guess I've always known
We'd meet again somehow
So then it might as well be now

    General Commentto me it's about bumping into a previous partner. Possibly someone that became a one night stand, ships passing in the night, from the lyrics. Although it holds more power if it was about a partner once loved that didn't work out.
    A powerful song indeed and one of my fave Bill Withers songs..
