We Were Lovers
Bloc Party Lyrics


We meet inside the café
The air is thick like hospital
Choked by the gold on your finger
We were lovers

Bury the thoughts that resurface
Those hands were mine

And now our love has been forgotten
Like it was never there
We're just sitting here like strangers
You gave me yourself for just a little while
But it was you, it was really you

Staring into my coffee
It is not black just a shade of brown
Too scared to let our eyes meet
What will we see?

And now our love has been forgotten
Like it was never there
We're just sitting here like strangers
You gave me yourself for just a little while
But it was you, it was really you

And now our love has been forgotten
Like it was never there
We're just sitting here like strangers
You gave me yourself for just a little while
But it was you, it was really you

The space between us
Will not be beat
Oceans and past lives
We were lovers

We meet inside the cafe
The air is thick like hospital
Choked by the gold on your finger
We were lovers

Bury the thoughts that resurface
Those hands were mine

And now our love has been forgotten
Like it was never there
We're just sitting here like strangers
You gave me yourself for just a little while
But it was you, it was really you

Staring into my coffee
It is not black just a shade of brown
Too scared to let our eyes meet
What will we see?

And now our love has been forgotten
Like it was never there
We're just sitting here like strangers
You gave me yourself for just a little while
But it was you, it was really you

And now our love has been forgotten
Like it was never there
We're just sitting here like strangers
You gave me yourself for just a little while
But it was you, it was really you

The space between us
Will not be beat
Oceans and past lives
We were lovers

Je me demande si elle se rappelle de moi.
Je l'ai vue pour la dernière fois en 2012, on a continué de se parler quelque temps en ligne mais...
Un jour le contact s'est brisé et ne s'est jamais renoué.
J'ai vu quelques photos d'elle. Elle n'a pas changé énormément et elle a l'air heureuse.
Elle revient dans ma ville assez rarement.
Je bosse dans un bar, maintenant, et des fois j'ai l'impression de la voir.
J'ai tellement changé qu'elle ne me reconnaîtra probablement pas, mais le jour ou elle franchira les portes je la reconnaîtrais, moi.
J'ai fait mon bout de chemin et j'ai quelqu'un de très sérieux maintenant, et pourtant la nostalgie pique toujours un peu.
À bientôt, Hélène.

Is it weird that I think this "B-side" Album is Bloc Party's best one?

eugenesnow

If you know you know. Bloc party has the best b sides of any indie band

Soka-Droid

nop

Adam Jackson

It's criminal that this b-side album was a b-side album.

Bos Yogurt Light

@Crozut still criminal

JulioCabanaFB

@Crozut Yeah, sadly is not even an official release

Crozut

But it's not even an official one

Derek Gabrys

How the hell could this song and Vision of Heaven not be included on a proper album? I mean seriously some top quality material has been discarded here.
