I'll give you each love letter back
We'll laugh before every joke is told
We'll pose after every photograph

Yes I'll meet you coming back
When the universe has expanded

You'll come back
And I'll meet you coming backwards

Forget your name forevermore

But I don't mind losing you this time

I'll meet you coming backwards
Yes I'll meet you coming back
When the universe has expanded
Time will contract
You'll come back
And I'll meet you coming backwards
Yes I'll meet you coming back
But we move forwards
Into emptiness
Into the void
Into the universe

We'll part as happy strangers
From a long friendship
That grew from such a love
From such a love
From such a love
Such a love
From such a

    (spoiler ahead :) )

    Undoing everything about a relationship, just to do it all again the right way, because two of you are meant for each other...
