"Other People" as written by and Victoria Garance Alixe Legrand Alex Kristian Scally....
So you thought it would happen
Good love goodbye
I know where no one can reach you
No I don't mind
It's your world why would you fake it
These days go by
As you turn around-ow-ow-ow

Other people want to keep in touch
Something happens and its not enough
Never thought that it would mean so much
Other people want to keep in touch

Heaven won't keep us together
Right place at the wrong time
It takes all kinds of weather
Distant new skies
Somewhere nothing could reach us
These days go by
As you turn around-ow-ow-ow

Other people want to keep in touch
Something happens and its not enough
Never thought that it would mean so much
Other people want to keep in touch

Was it ever quite enough
Was it ever quite enough
Was it ever quite enough
Was it ever quite enough
Was it ever quite enough

    General CommentI feel like this is just the natural losing of friends that everyone goes through in the high school to college, college to "real world". Everyone starts with the best intentions of keeping in touch, but naturally you lose friends and you're left with the friends that you have in your current area and only the best of friends from those periods in your life. They might make an attempt to maintain the relationship, but it's just not enough for you.

    General CommentIs it about a relationship being broken up by external factors?

    General CommentI think it's 'Heaven will keep us together' not 'help me keep us together', makes more sense why it would be right place at the wrong time.

    Also it sounds like 'Distant blue skies. Some where no one can reach us'

    General Commenti think it is the ending of a relationship where both of them agree to end it.
    One person may feel like this is the end and speak about it " No I don't mind
    It's your world why would you fake it"

    My InterpretationTo me this chorus is clearly about being famous and having to shake off people who were never your true friends but kind of pretended to be back in the day.
    It's actually kind of disenchanting; the whole, "We're famous now, leave us alone" vibe.
