Dear mother, can you hear my footsteps?
I'm so close, I'm right there
I'm almost home, so unprepared
To notice, yet ignore
How hard it is to be around you
I've come clean, I've washed out
I've flooded the engine, stranded myself
This home, native land
They speak in words I can't understand

So when I'm standing on the street
Like I have a hundred times
You don't even glance at me
You just pass me by

I remember your face
From the moment I first saw you
I never looked away
I'll never forget
How you looked that Saturday
When you told me
We could never be together
And I could never change

Mother, mother, is it you who's calling?
Lights out, lie down
We'll sleep when we're dead, that time is now
Soft speak will drown own
How I can't do what's right around you
Cold breeze, no coat
Excuses used to take words from my throat
False hope confirmed
Deceit's a language I can't hope to learn

So when we're standing on the street
Like we have a hundred times
We will celebrate the years
You stalled and couldn't decide

I remember your face
From the moment I first saw you
I never looked away
I'll never forget
How you looked that Saturday
When you told me
We could never be together
And I could never change

I used to believe that every
Person had a purpose in this
Swirling ball of indecision
That consumes us all
I used to believe that every
Person had a person they could
Always count on and not be scared of
One for everyone

So when I'm standing on the street
Like I have a hundred times
Can I walk away and finally leave
Finally leave all of this behind?

I remember your face
From the moment I first saw you
I never looked away
I'll never forget
How you looked that Saturday
When you told me
We could never be together
And I could never change

(Je me souviens)
I remember your face (I remember)
From the moment I first saw you
I never looked away
I'll never forget
(Je me souviens)
How you looked that Saturday (I remember)
When you told me
We could never be together
And I could never change
