Duet for a lost love

(Man) Have you ever been so lonely that you feel you couldn't care?
That your life is full of nothing and you're going to nowhere?
(Woman) Have you ever been so lonely that your cares no longer feel?
That your loving days are over and your heart is now of steel?
(Man) Then something that is said.
(Woman) Or something that you see.
(Man) A prompt. A nudge. A noise perhaps...
(Woman) ...brings back a memory.
(Man) Have you seen the situation when you see someone from afar?
(Woman) Is it them or just a mirage?
(Both) Are you who I think you are?

(Woman) I won't accept these facts at all. I won't believe my eyes.
I cannot start on mending all those painful days and lies.
(Man) I won't be seen to go back on all my promises to me.
The days and nights of total pain as I tried to cut you free.
(Woman) I won't believe in miracles.
(Man) I've suffered so to learn.
(Woman) I can't believe that in one glimpse...
(Man) ...I've seen the past return.
(Woman) But when I take a closer look, it's like finding a new star.
(Man) I'm sure that I am certain.
(Both) Are you who I think you are?

(Both) Are you from my past or just made of glass?
Are you really there?
Take a look at me. Do you long to be,
Here without a care?
Just give me the eye. Make a tear run dry.
Be the one I knew
Could we re-light the flame? Do you feel the same?
Please tell me are you who?
I think you are.

(Man) I thought I'd put the fire out. I thought that you were gone.
I said I'd never would go back or listen to our song
(Woman) But deep inside I knew that you were just on ice.
Hidden in a secret file but thinking it was nice
(Man) All my burdens are lifting.
(Woman) My chains are breaking free.
(Man) Seeing you has brought about...
(Woman) ...a long lost melody.
(Man) I heard you were around here. I thought I saw your car.
(Woman) Please tell me with all honesty.
(Both) Are you who I think you are?

(Both) Are you from my past or just made of glass?
Are you really there?
Take a look at me. Do you long to be,
Here without a care?
Just give me the eye. Make a tear run dry.
Be the one I knew
Could we re-light the flame? Do you feel the same?
Please tell me are you who?
I think you are.

(Music...)

(Woman) Hang on, I need a minute. I'm back from hell today.
I can't think straight. I need some time for things that I should say.
(Man) Don't say a thing. Just do it. Just make this dream come true.
I'm sure that what I'm feeling is going on in you.
(Woman) Do you feel the same as I do?
(Man) Don't you want to grab this chance?
(Woman) Should we take things as they happen...
(Man) ...Or try to find our old romance.
(Woman) We can't know that it will happen. The fact that we've come far.
(Man) Do you sense that what you're saying is.
(Both) Are you who I think you are?

(Both) Are you from my past or just made of glass?
Are you really there?
Take a look at me. Do you long to be,
Here without a care?
Just give me the eye. Make a tear run dry.
Be the one I knew
Could we re-light the flame? Do you feel the same?
Please tell me are you who?
I think you are.

(Both) Are you from my past or just made of glass?
Are you really there?
Take a look at me. Do you long to be,
Here without a care?
Just give me the eye. Make a tear run dry.
Be the one I knew
Could we re-light the flame? Do you feel the same?
Please tell me are you who?
I think you are.
