When did we throw caution to the wind?
Living life with no care
Unconcerned about the distance between us
The silence
Those conversations that should have happened
When did we become strangers?

This was never the plan
It all started out so well
Now, its slowly becoming a distant memory
You seem to have moved on
Have you?
I cant tell
Cos you are now a stranger
Please, when did we become strangers?!!!

I still remember how hard I fell for you
How silly I acted around you
I would walk all night just to see you at dawn
So far away I lived from you
Yet, the distance didn’t really matter
The distance made me fight harder
So tell me
When did we become strangers?

 We both did wrong
We let the fire burn out
We got so comfortable
We no longer threw in the logs
We watched the fire die
Tolerating our flaws
But not really caring for each other anymore
Oh lordthats how we became strangers!

Here I am reminiscing
Waiting for you to come back to me
And there you are
Holding on to the ring of another
What can I do to win your heart again?
Tell me, Mi Amour
I can’t bear the “what ifs”
I can’t be a stranger anymore
