"You've Changed"

[ from the album "Timelord" (1993) ]

Lyrics

Me and her and the ghost of you
You and him and the ghost of me
Two plus one is three and two plus a ghost is three
I guess there must be six of us now

I remember you telling me
That even though you loved him
Like sister loves a brother
There'll always be another
Hanging over you, the ghost of your ex-lover
There are six of us

The ghost no longer resembles me
Younger, more good-looking
Like my memories of you are
More permanent and truer
Than the girl I see before me
Are we real or are we spirits?

You've changed but your face has stayed the same
In my memories of you I still feel a little pain
But I've changed too

Don't let's talk about faithfulness
Now that there are six of us
Don't get possessive, it's melodramatic
It's not love, it's mathematics
There are six of us now

You've changed but your face has stayed the same
In my memories of you I still feel a little pain
But I've changed too

Don't let's talk about faithfulness
Now that there are six of us
Don't get possessive, it's melodramatic
It's not love, it's mathematics
There are six of us now

Me and her and the ghost of you
You and him and the ghost of me
Two plus one is three and two plus a ghost is three
I guess there must be six of us now

You've changed and I'm looking at your face
But the feelings that I feel are in another time and place

You've changed, you're more vulnerable now
But the arrogance you had was beautiful somehow

You've changed and your boyfriend hangs about
He wants to know if I'm the one he's heard so much about
But I've changed too

You've changed but your face has stayed the same
In my memories of you I still feel a little pain

You've changed and the passion fades away
And politeness takes its place, but I long to kiss your face

You've changed, you're more vulnerable now
But the arrogance you had was beautiful somehow
But I've changed too
