Look at Us Now

Walking home
I hit you in the street
A lucky chance
That makes us both smile
A year ago
How scared I was of this
I thought I'd lose you
If I let you go
But look at us now!
How we are smiling
From down deep inside
When we meet like this
By coincidence
In a crowded street
Your train will leave
In ten minutes or so
You have to go shopping
For groceries
I walk with you
In the supermarket hall
Not hand in hand
But close
Look at us now!
I think we'll make it
Yes I really think so
In many ways it's an end
But with a piece of chance
We'll stay friends
Of course I think
Of course there might come more
Sometimes I see
Your sorrow
And me as well
I think of what there was before
It's far from given
We'll refind that
But look at us now!
How we are smiling
From down deep inside
When we meet
Maybe not every day
But you have promised me we'll stay
Yes, you have promised me
We'll keep spending time
Till we're dead
