    A brand new familiarness
    That's what you mean to me
    Your touch I remember
    From a time I fail to recall
    That's what you mean to me

    An uncertain future
    A hand to hold
    An attentive ear
    A tale to yet be told

    A childhood smell
    Sweet to my nose
    That's what you mean to me
    You were always so close
    Why were you so far away?
    Do I know you?
    Did I know you?
    Should I know you?
    Will I know you?
    Innocent, exciting curiosity
    That's what you mean to me

    Thief of my trust
    Beholder of hope
    Object of my lust
    More integrity than most

    Deja vu, that's what you mean to me
    The sound of children playing
    Laughter in the sun
    That's what you mean to me

    You taste like a vacation
    But you feel like home
    Your arms around me, like heaven
    You stole my desire to be alone

    The world.
    That's what you mean to me
