I Saw You Lyrics
It must have been at least three years ago. I had a crush on this girl I
Didn't know. I thought it was a good idea at the time but I was pissed. I
Tried to find her by sending an ad into 'The List'. It was free 'cause
They'd just started this brand new section. First I passed it on to my old
Friend Denise for her inspection. It said: "I saw you twice and both times
You were wearing orange. And she told you I fancied you in the toilets at
The garage. " There was never a reply, perhaps it didn't astound her. That's
Assuming she ever saw it but I think I've found her. I thought it could've
Been her in a club on Saturday night. She was a couple of tables away and I
Thought it might be. But I was far too drunk, so an approach was out of the
Question. But this guy Stuart had sent us tickets to see his band Belle &
Sebastian. We went along thoroughly drunk, stopped for a post-gig "Hello".
And I think the girl I was looking for is friends with the girl who plays
The cello. I think she's coming to see us when we play. And every time we
Meet I've got nothing to say. She probably thinks I'm cute, she maybe
Thinks I'm g**. She's probably got a boyfriend anyway. I remember the first
Time that I saw her, I was completely in awe. I thought, well that's the
Kind of girl that I would like to be my squaw. And if I could ever be the
Kind of brave that she would choose. We'd travel plains with our little
Baby turned in it's little pappoose. She starts foresighting me in a public
Bar, my bird was in the bog. When she returned she said that she would like
To give that girl a snog. And two weeks later we split up and a new lover I
Was seeking. And when I see that girl again I'm just never up for speaking.
I think she's coming to see us when we play. And every time we meet I've
Got nothing to say. She probably thinks I'm cute, she maybe thinks I'm g**.
She's probably got a boyfriend anyway.
