What if the world we both revere, was changed by fate in such a way
That I and you, and you and I, become two separate beings?
The air I breathe, the time that flies, the words that speak such empty lies
The dress you wear, the smile you share, the little things of here and there
What if these things so near and dear, were turned by time in such a way
That I and you, and you and I, don’t laugh as much, as much we sigh?
The jokes I crack, the songs I sing, the happiness I try to bring
The meals you make, the tears you hide, the way you try to fix my pride
What if the ghosts of years past, caught up to us, in such a way
That I and you and you and I turn old and frail, are soon to die?
The teeth I loose, the feet that pain, the days I sometimes act insane
The mirrors you place, the makeup you smear, the way you pray to God in fear
All this and more, will come and go, but don’t you dread, please don’t despair
Remember this and smile my love
There was a you, There was an I
