It may just be that I've known you before
It may just be that I've known that smile;
The same words, the same modes,
Perhaps even the patterns in your hands.
It's true, the expressions you wore:
I haven't seen them in a while
They'd all travelled different roads
We'd walked on different, distant lands.
You'll have to forgive my ambivalence:
It's been some time, you see,
Since someone had tried to touch
The places I keep under my skin.
It surprises me, this equivalence
Oh, if you knew, you'd have to agree;
It's been long since one tried so much,
Back then, it was only an ephemeral spin.
You'll have to forgive my intransience:
I'm usually one to follow the ebb and flow;
One to sing with the setting golden sun,
And dance with the rising silver sphere.
But this recurrence provokes reticence,
For though the time has seen me grow,
The conclusions of tales that were spun
Are still spiders' webs, all a little too near.
Oh, I'm sure I've known you before;
