"Sunset" as written by Romy Anna Madley Croft, Oliver Sim and James Thomas Smith....
I saw you again, it felt like we had never met
It's like the sun set in your eyes and never wanted to rise
And what have you done with the one I love?
When I look into your eyes, I see no surprise

I always thought it was sad
The way we act like strangers
After all that we had
We act like we had never met

We make believe, I've never seen your face, you neither mine
And catch my eye, don't register a smile
You were more than just a friend, oh but the feeling
It never came to an end, I can't bear to see you

I always thought it was a shame
That we have to play these games
It felt like you really knew me
Now it feels like you see through me

When I see you again
I'll know not to expect
Stay one step away
We will have to wait

When I see you again
And I'm greeted as a friend
It is understood
That we did all we could

I always thought it was sad
The way we act like strangers
After all that we had
We act like we had never met

I always thought it was a shame
That we have to play these games
It felt like you really knew me
Now it feels like you see through me

    General CommentIts about two people who used to be really close or in love and drifted apart. But after a falling out or breakup, now they are like strangers to each other. They avoid each other and pretend they don't know each other.

    "It's like the sun set in your eyes and never wanted to rise" - The warmth (sun) of whatever they had "set" and never came back.

    I think in this song its talking about two people who used to be in love. But personally, I think of old friends I used to have who I never see or speak to anymore. And if by chance I do see them again, we act like strangers, even though we used to be really close. "I saw you again, it felt like we had never met."

    My Opinionthis song to me is about to potential and very passionate lovers whom act and set the standard to just be friends to each other. However there is something more to them and they never seemed to meet eye to eye on their feelings for one another.

    just my thoughts.
    and when the girl sing "now it feels like you see through me" it makes sense that the guy knows her well or maybe she feels vulnerable around him. what a hard position to be in...

    I'm here right now. I ended things because they simply weren't right but a part of me wishes that I hadn't. A part of me wishes that I'd tried harder to make it work and now I can't bare to look at her.

    General CommentI think this song is about two lovers that had to break up for some reasons and they didn't keep in touch after that.
    Now, when they suddenly meet each other, his ex would most likely try to avoid him and wouldn't make an eye contact with him nor greeting him, she would rather walk by and act like she doesn't know him, and he has no choice but playing those kind of games with her.
