Well yes, I guess we messed up our big romance way back when
But of course we were so young and so completely unprepared
I'd like to think the both of us have changed a lot since then
When I was young and stupid and you were young and scared
          Although no change is complete.
     Are the changes enough that we might meet
          and stay?
     Do we change unto we two--or do
          We change away?
     I don't know, it's been so 
          long since I have seen you.

It frightened you the way I loved you in that long-ago.
Do you know how much I've had to change since then?
And finally it occurred to me that I should let you know
That I never have forgotten you and would like to try again
          Although no change is complete.
     Are the changes enough that we might meet
          and stay?
     Do we change unto we two--or do
          We change away?
     I don't know, but my only
           true love has always been you.

I knew I never would be loved, I was afraid.
And you knew you would not ever love someone, you were afraid.
Well, I've been loved by now, and you have loved by now,
We don't need to cling and claw,
We don't need to hurt and run,
You were isolated in your mind.
I tried to see, but I was blind.
We needed time.

So have I changed into a man or am I still a child?
Could we see how much we might have changed since then?
And have you found some peace or do you still need to be wild?
Sure, there's a chance it might not work again, but then
          Although no change is complete.
     Are the changes enough that we might meet
          and stay?
     Do we change unto we two--or do
          We change away?
     I don't know, we just might go
          find love as strangers, 
          if we do.
