I seem to recognize your face
Haunting familiar here
I can't seem to place it
Can I find a candle of thought
To light your name
Lifetimes are catchin' on
with me

All these changes takin place
I wish I'd seen the place
but no one's ever taken me

Hearts and thoughts they fade
fade away
hearts and thoughts they fade
fade away

I swear I recognize your breath
memories like fingerprints are slowly raisin'
you wouldnt recall...
are not my fault
it's hard when you're stuck upon
the shelf

I changed by not changin' at all
small time predicts my face
perhaps that what no one wants to see
I just wanna scream
HELLO!

By God it's been so long
never dreamed you'd return!
but now here you are
and here I am

my hearts and thoughts they fade
away

hearts and thoughts they fade
fade away
hearts and thoughts they fade
fade away

hearts and thoughts they fade
aaaaaaaaaaaaaaway
hearts and thoughts they fade
fade away

hearts and thoughts they fade
fade away
hearts and thoughts they fade
fade away
