Here it comes again : the urge to write,
To lay down on paper that time was not on our side.
Got a pocketful of blurry slides,
Images too vague to try to make sense of them now.

History's always written in the aftermath.
It's a dirty job to make a scrapbook of our past...

Coz I don't know your face now, don't know your face now,
It has changed somehow...
And I realize I don't know who you are.
I thought I knew you by heart, right then from the start, it's a shifty game.
You're the same. Yet a stranger, a stranger... Stranger to my heart.

Turn the bright lights out and leave the place.
I doubt you ever tried to make space for me at your side.
No matter how small, discreet, or tame,
't was not about me but about your ex after all.

I don't resent you for the rawness of your scars,
I just don't wanna wait to see if they are gonna close...
Coz I don't know your face now, don't know your face now,
It has changed somehow...
And I realize I don't know who you are.
I thought I knew you by heart, right then from the start, it's a shifty game :
You're the same. Yet a stranger, a stranger... Stranger to my heart.

To sing about love is for the meek,
But it would be foolish to think it is for the weak.
By getting it all out, I make my peace
With things I cannot change - I wouldn't want that in the least.

This scrapbook testifies to who we've been
As a milestone on the journey we make within...

I think I see your face now, I see your face now, it's just not the face
I want to cherish for all times.
I feel for you as a friend, as a fellow soul. In my heart of hearts,
Think I knew you'd be my best lesson in the art... In the art of love.
