Do you remember
What things looked like when you were young?
The voice of an old friend
Or the notes to your first song

It's been awhile now
Since you asked me to be
Your cat, your dog, your owl, your bumblebee

Lately I've been feeling like the day is gonna come
You'll walk up to me and erase my memory
Can't wait to feel brand new
I can't wait to meet you again...friend

I think I must have known you
In another life
I think our rocking chairs
Used to rock together all night

With pictures of owls
All over the walls
Tiny ships in bottles
They won't sail too far

    Beautiful and sad at the same time. Who doesn't know the case of loosing a beloved person. It's about letting someone go without noticing he or she might never come back. But you'll remember as well as the others will

    Te acuerdas
    De cómo se veían las cosas cuando eras jóven,
    La voz de un viejo amigo,
    O las notas de tú primera canción?

    Ha pasado un tiempo ahora,
    Desde que me pediste ser
    Tú gato, tú perro, tú búho, tú abejorro

    Últimamente he estado sintiendo como si el día fuera a llegar
    Tu caminaras hacia mi y borrarás mi memoria
    No puedo esperar para sentirme como nuevo
    No puedo esperar por encontrante de nuevo... amigo

    Pienso que debí conocerte
    En otra vida
    Pienso que nuestras mecedoras
    Se mecían juntas toda la noche

    Con pinturas de búhos
    En todas las paredes
    Pequeños barcos en botellas
    No se irían muy lejos
