lyrics

Perfect Strangers

Bending in my hands the card you sent from New York
You had to cross Atlantic before I felt close to you
But is it so, lil’ sis, that we've become so estranged
that all we have to say can fit into a few lines?

Cut off ties - the bond still remains
We are the perfect strangers who've met somewhere in time in previous life

If I could I would go back in time and change the moment we drifted apart,
and I wouldn't let you leave
If I could I would go back in time and be the brother I should have been
But what's once been broken can't be the same again

I'm really sorry for all the birthdays I've missed
Maybe I'm selfish or I don't know how to approach
I man up and call you to say it's all alright
Before you answer, cowardly I hang up

Chained by blood, hearts apart
We are the perfect strangers who are sharing the mutual déjà-vu

If I could I would go back in time and change the moment we drifted apart,
and I wouldn't let you leave
If I could I would go back in time and be the brother I should have been

'Cause you cannot change what you're afraid of
You cannot miss what you haven't lost

If I could I would go back in time and change the moment we drifted apart,
and I wouldn't let you leave

If I could I would go back in time and change the moment we drifted apart,
and I wouldn't let you leave
If I could I would go back in time and be the brother I should have been

'Cause you cannot change what you're afraid of
You cannot miss what you haven't lost
