    My interpretation is that the relationship did not work out because of the immature thinking of one side saying that he can live without her. But anyway as they both grew older, the guy realizes that he can't "Now all i do is sit and count the miles from you to me". I think he is still getting tabs on her but he tries to move on "Watch the changes from afar keep forgetting to remember...". Then the guy reminisces then struggles to recall the reason why she left. And he is wondering,if ever he sees her again how would the girl react? "If I catch you on the corner will you even know it's me? Will I look familiar to you? Do you offer me a seat? Can we find a new beginning? Do you turn the other cheek?". At the last line he is wishing for her to come back to him.
