    It sounds like the two characters in the song are... in heaven. They are talking about their lives in the past tense, which is interesting ("How long WAS your life"). The two people are finding common ground about themselves ("Was it fold and strange like mine?"). This is my personal favorite GA song lyrically, the vocabulary and descriptions are incredibly vivid and heartbreaking.
