I passed you on a street in town, today
And my heart ached in an old familiar way
I thought of things I'd like to say, should I catch your eye
And just like a stranger, you walked right on by.

I stood there on the corner, of the street
The same old corner, where we once used to meet
I know you saw the teardrops, falling from my eyes
But just like a stranger, you walked right on by.

--- Instrumental ---

I've walked with you down this old street, before
But I'll never walk it with you, anymore
I smiled and said hello to you, but you made no reply
Instead like a stranger, you walked right on by.

Just like a stranger, you walked right on by...
