I don't remember what I called you
When I saw you last night
I couldn't think with the volume
Of the music so high

I really hope it wasn't
One of your old pet names
I'm afraid for a moment
I believed things were still the same

And the apologist in me feels compelled to let you know
So you couldn't think I'm unable to let go

But I am
Still the sum of what made
Who you'd see today
If I walked myself in the pouring rain
To find you

What if I actually called you
And told you these things?
It's still surreal that I saw you
And I still refuse to blink

It's not clear where memories
Become memories not real
You'd think time had tempered me
To a different ideal

And the optimist in me wants to think you believe
That I couldn't still actually be that naive

But I am
Still the sum of what made
Who you'd see today
If I walked myself in the pouring rain
To find you

I am
Still the sum of what made
Who you'd see today
If I walked myself in the pouring rain
To find you
