Lyrics
A smile to break the ice, can I know your name
If you say no and it's touch and go
Nothing would have been the same
Oh was it star-dust or just lust

Well one touch is just not enough
Faces change but somewhere in the passing crowd
The face you just can't live without
Nothing's changed but nothing seems the same

Remembering a thousand things I meant to say
The past's a sea of boys and girls
Who disappeared without a word
All friends of mine who had their time, then drifted away

Delights, dizzy heights, will you change your name?
If you say no and it's touch and go
Nothing's going to seem the same
Oh but the stars are out, they're shining down

They whisper through the passing clouds
Don't be scared the wind will come, blow you home
Don't be afraid, ''cause you're not alone
Nothing's changed but nothing seems the same

Remembering a thousand things I meant to say
The past's a sea of boys and girls
Who disappeared without a word
All friends of mine who had their time, then drifted away

Tell it to me one more time
Oh ''cause I'll never get to feel the same way, tonight
I'll remember every line, [every line]
I'll never get to hear the same words, not twice

Nothing's changed but nothing seems the same
Remembering a thousand things I meant to say
The past's a sea of boys and girls
Who disappeared without a word

All friends of mine who had their time, then drifted away
Remember all the Mersey skies
On rainy streets, I spent the night
With friends of mine who had their time then drifted away
