I hadn't seen you in so long I didn't know you changed the color of your hair
And I knew it had to happen someday but there's no way I could really be prepared
There was music there were lights
Across the street a laundromat had stayed open all night
And a thousand angry angels took to the air

We stood there talking so detached and not to glance up [and remember] each other's eyes
And all the songs sounded the same and they gave names to every different kind of lie
It was the standard dishonesty
Secrets we decided we should keep
And things we wouldn't admit to save our lives

I said there’s nothing else at all because you had the gall to ask me how I felt
And you laughed like you were drunk but not on wine but someone drunk on someone else
And in you I saw the past, concerned with nothing but holding hands and lying in the grass
And I could tell in me you only could see yourself

And now your friends and your parents
They’ll see you and they’ll ask you how I’ve been
They’re just making conversation
But you know you won’t be seeing me again
So you smile and pretend not to hear them
