Lyrics

I was picking up a suit from the dry cleaners
Which is standard for me
Thursday, 12: 30
I got a pretty solid routine these days
I don't know, it just works for me
Anyway, I was leaving
I was getting in my car
And I went to adjust the rear-view mirror
But in its reflection, just for a second
I saw a figure, started to trigger
Memories of what I'd learned, stopped me in my tracks
Who was that? It was my lover
My lover, from a past life

From a past life (Feel like I saw a ghost)
From a past life (So unexpected)
From a past life (I was transfixed)
From a past life

Well, somewhere between a lover and a friend
It was different back then
Surreal, poetic but uncertain
Like a bizarre chick-flick with a confusing end
But I shut it down, closed it off
The sounds and smells I made myself forget
A cheap solution to block out regret, but it was real
It just feels like a past life

From a past life (Crazy)
From a past life (It takes a lot to trip me out)
(I always wondered if you wanted my love)
For the first time
In a long time
(I always wondered if you wanted my love)

So I go about my day as normal
But I can't seem to pass it off as just a random event
It consumes me
I thought I was moving on, but I guess I was just switching off
And now I see my life as the banal slog it instantly became
And I don't know if I can go on the same
But I don't wanna dig up old bones
I mean, I don't even know if she has the same phone number
Who knows? Maybe she does

From a past life (I guess there's no harm in trying)
From a past life (What's the worst that could happen?)
(I only wondered if you wanted my love)
For the first time
In a long time
(I tried to say it but it never came out right)
Past life
From a past life
(You're not a stranger if you're always on my mind)
For the first time
(I know it's late, it just didn't feel right)
In a long time
