Lyrics

I always felt like you've known me,
I thought of you when I got lonely,
Now there's nothing else I can do,
This is me reaching out to you

Dear you, I hope you don't mind me writing, 'cause it's been some time since we last spoke,
I hope you're doing more than fine, damn all that time I don't know where it goes,
Man I bet there's been some change and in my brain you've been doing so well,
I know It's important, I know I haven't called but, tell me all there is to tell

I always felt like you've known me,
I thought of you when I got lonely,
Now there's nothing else I can do,
This is me reaching out to you

Dear you, it looks like you must have moved house, the last address I got for you was time ago now,
You're probably in Spain or the states no doubt, in school I always knew that it was you who'd get out,
I heard you dumped Christeen but that was probably what, 2003,
I bet you've got a super hot wife or three, you were always such a player when we were sixteen,
I hope our paths cross sometime, I can't seem to find your profile online,
Drop me a call, any day or night is fine because I'd love to see your face after such a long time

I always felt like you've known me,
I thought of you when I got lonely,
Now there's nothing else I can do,
This is me reaching out to you

Dear you, me again, obviously it's a letter, it's weird writing these to you makes me feel better,
'Cause sometimes when it's dark or it's really bad weather, I feel like I might just feel down forever,
Last night I really felt that might have been it, like I just couldn't deal with any more shit,
I wanted to disappear and if I think that I did, it would be at least a week before it went noticed,
I wanna go back, back to when we were kids, when we didn't know pain could feel like this,
When we didn't know hurt and we didn't know risk but we all grew up and I guess that's it,

I always felt like you've known me,
I thought of you when I got lonely,
Now there's nothing else I can do,
This is me reaching out to you

Dear you, it's strange how quickly we can lose sight, I called your old landline late last night,
I remembered those numbers since '99, anyway suppose I called because you hadn't replied,
I got through to your parents, they were so surprised, they asked me if I still lived down park drive,
I got the worst feeling when I heard your dad cry, when your mum took the phone and went outside,
Man, she told me how hard you tried, that it didn't work out with your kids and wife,
I nearly dropped the phone and had tears in my eyes, when she said, you took your own life last July.

I always felt like I'd known you,
I never thought you would be lonely,
Now there's nothing else I can do,
This is me reaching out to you.
