import imports names. Any names, not just functions.
After all, function names are just names like any other
sqr = lambda x: x*x
is exactly the same as
def sqr(x): return x*x
In both cases import will give you access to sqr as a name
So in your case the names text1, text2, text1_lines and
text2_lines will all be made available within your script.
