Cousteau – How Will I Know? lyrics

You could be anywhere
A passerby might
Capture my eye unaware

You could be anyone
But how will I know
when my time has come?

'cos in the middle of the day
Or in the middle of the night
How will I know if it's you
How will I know it's right

And if it all comes down to me
To go walking up to you
There's one million little things
That I'm more likely to do

I kinda know you're there
A lifetime's knowing
A life's undergoing unawares

You could be anyone
But how will I know
If my time has come?
