Boston
I know that I've been to this place before
It's been so long
But I know for sure
So many different faces
From so many different places
I wonder where they're going
I wonder where they've been
And I wonder if
They'll come back here
Ever again
Are they just passing through
Or are they coming home
To this place that they've always known
I know that I've been here before
Wasn't that so long ago
How many people pass through these gates
Wherever their destinations may be to the many places
I wonder who they are
Are they close or from very far
Each face I see
Tells a different story
I'm boarding this plane
And going home
Sitting next to a person
Whose name I do not know
So close and yet so far
Next to this someone I will never face
Never again
And I sometimes wonder if
This slight experience
Somehow makes a difference

Quite a mix of deja vu and the present and a person or two thrown in. I liked the mix for it does make you wonder....
