I saw you in the crowd today.

You didn’t even look my way.

But you must care, for you still wear

The chain and token from our past,

Though love was doomed and could not last.

Rich memories of the sweetest kind.

A perfect pair but unaware

That we were destined kindred souls,

So we let pride destroy those roles.

 

I thought our love had died away,

Then, I saw you in the crowd today.
