For Old Times' Sake

You called and said let's get together again sometime
You said that lately I'd crossed your mind
It's been a while since we've spoken
I'm pretty sure the last time our hearts got broken

We had something special once but now it's gone
Our lives intersected then we just moved on
I remember like a dream some beautiful days
Before we woke up and love slipped away

And I'd rather remember us the way it was then
Let's not even try to start things up again
The heat of old emotion would be too hard to fake
So let's not meet, for old times' sake

Let's not revisit the past face to face
It was a different time and a different place
Our hearts beat to the same rhythm way back then
But now there's some hurt we might bring up again

We'd just catch up on the basics then have nothing left to say
I'd rather remember you another way
I don't want to see your life's just fine without me
I'd like to keep a hold on old memories
