I Think I Remember You © 2008, Madeline Preisner
I Think I Remember You, But I don't know if it is really true
or just a memory of how I wanted it to be
Sometimes my history is such a mystery to me
when suddenly a memory reminds me how I used to be
All the pieces re-arrange around a new found memory
suddenly, I remember me
and I Think I Remember You, but I don't know if it is really true
or just a dream I had that seemed (to be) so real to me
You think you know yourself, until someone else
reminds you of you from another point of view
all the pieces re-align to suit a different frame of mind
a whole lifetime re-defined
It seems so strange, that the past can re-arrange
I thought that history, was certainty, not endless possibility
Are you the one that I once knew or do you just remind me of someone who
reminds me of something I wish I did not do
We were so young, but even then, I knew, --I hurt you
But I don't even know if it is you, Was it just a dream or really true?
I didn't mean to hurt you then, and I don't want to again
I'd like to try and tell you why I made you cry, but I don't even know that I.....
But I Think I Remember You, I don't know if it is really true
or just a dream I had that seemed to be a memory
all the people come back in, lets all go around again
all these people you once knew, slowly coming back in view
but what are we supposed to do?
I Think I Remember You, --- I don't know --if I really do...
