Saw you walking by the place
Where we used to meet
Turn your head and disappear
Onto busy street
Nothing mattered
Back when things were true
But you were beautiful,
You had things to do

The snow has covered every track
From me to you
And you will never know, my love,
What I think of you

Did you touch the sky,
Like you wanted to?
Did you make a life,
The way you told me to?
Would I see it in your eyes,
Just like I used to do?

Things are quiet now
When I think of you
Have you made a life,
Or are you quiet, too?
Like a plane across the sky
Before the sound breaks through
Have you made a life,
Or are you quiet, too?

The snow has covered every track
From me to you
And you will never know, my love
What I think of you

Did you touch the sky,
Like you wanted to?
Did you make a life,
The way you told me to?
Would I see it in your eyes,
Like I used to do?
Like I used to do?

Saw you walking by the place
Where we used to meet
Turn your head and disappear
Onto busy street

    My InterpretationThe song is basically the singer detailing a first love that never lasted (The snow has covered every track/From me to you/And you will never know, my love/What I think of you), and yet, that love still sticks with him (Things are quiet now/When I think of you/Have you made a life/Or are you quiet, too?), especially when he sees her around (Saw you walking by the place/Where we used to meet/Turn your head and disappear/Onto busy street). The first lyric of the chorus can also represent time separating the two and covering their former bonds. One of my favorites off this album, and one of the best love songs of all time in my eyes.
