I know we're just like old friends 
We just can't pretend 
That lovers make amends 
We are reasons so unreal

The letters have been sent on 

So please, you always were so free 
You'll see, I promise we'll be 
Perfect strangers when we meet 
Strangers on the street 
Lovers while we sleep 

You know this has to be 
We always we're so free 
We promised that we'd be
