"Past Lives" as written by and Benjamin Scott Folds Ben Folds....
We were lovers in a past life
I can see it in your green eyes
Maybe you were one of my wives
In a long lost tribe

There’s just somethin' about you I know
Started centuries ago though
You see your kiss is like a lost ghost
Only I would know
But I, I keep on falling for you
Time after time
Time after time
I’ll make you mine

Time after
Time after time
See millenniums ago love

We were nothing more than stardust
Just the galaxy beneath us
You found me
Then we made it though the ice age
But I lost you in the crusades
I build the pyramids for you babe
Just to see your face
But I, I keep on falling for you

Time after time
Time after time
I’ll make you mine
Time after
Time after time

Yeah
(Time after time, time after time)
(Time after time, time after time)
(Time after time, time after time)
(Time after time, time after time)

    My InterpretationThis is an absolutely beautiful song, and the meaning is self-explanatory. It's about the speaker's soul mate who she's met in previous lives from the Crusades to the ancient pyramids in Egypt. She's lost him/her before, but they always meet again in a new life. She can feel their connection and it's the only way she can explain said connection between the two of them.

    I'm a bit sad that this song doesn't have any comments yet. It's my favorite song on the album if not my favorite song she's ever written.
