THE STRANGER I USE TO KNOW
by Brian Oneil Jackson

EXCUSE ME, MISS... HAVEN'T WE MET SOMEWHERE BEFORE? 
YOU LOOK LIKE SOMEONE I USE TO KNOW, 
A PERSON WHO HELD MY HEART CAPTIVE LONG AGO,
A PERSON WHO TOLD ME TO HOLD ON AND NEVER LET GO.

NO, THIS COULDN'T BE YOU, THE ONE WHO PLAYED THE FOOL, 
THE ONE WHO WAS CRUEL AND RUDE, 
THE ONE WHO MADE ME FEEL USED. 
I'M SORRY, MISS., FOR THE REMINISCE.

ONCE UPON A TIME, I KNEW YOU AND WHAT YOU STOOD FOR, 
BUT THAT WAS A LONG TIME AGO... 
NOW YOU'RE JUST A STRANGER- I USE TO KNOW.
