Out of touch

Así me siento.

No viene muy a cuento, porque yo no estoy pensando en nadie en particular y menos aún en alguna antigua  amante, pero ése es también el título de una canción de Lucinda y cualquier excusa me vale para encasquetarla aquí, eso está ya más que claro...

Once in awhile we might pass on the street
We nod and we smile and we shuffle our feet
Making small talk, standing face to face
Hands in our pockets 'cause we feel so out of place
Our paths may cross again in some crowded bar
We feel a little lost 'cause we've drifted away so far
Hoping to find the right words to say
We joke a little and then go on our way
We are so out of touch, yeah
We are so out of touch, yeah

We speak in past tense and talk about the weather
Half broken sentences we try to piece together
I ask about an old friend that we both used to know
You said you heard he took his life about five years ago

We may pass each other on the interstate
We honk and cross over to the other lane
Everybody's going somewhere, everybody's inside
Hundreds of cars, hundreds of private lives
We are so out of touch, yeah
