I called your name outloud,
To a stranger yesterday.
When she turned around,
I said "I'm sorry",
And just walked away.
From a distance,
She had that look.
And for a second or two,
I thought it was you.
Took a moment to catch my breath,
Try to brace myself.
Still don't have a clue.
On how to leave your memory behind,
After all this time.
I hear there's one special love in each life.
And I must look like a fool,
I thought it was you.

I still drive by your house,
Taking trips down memory lane.
We had our furture worked out,
At least we did on that old porch swing.
Today in my rearview mirror,
I saw an old Malibu.
Girl I thought it was you.
Took a moment to catch my breath,
Try to brace myself.
Still don't have a clue.
On how to leave your memory behind,
After all this time.
I hear there's one special love in each life.
And I must look like a fool,
I thought it was you.
Am I really a fool?
I thought it was you.
I thought it was you.
Why couldn't it be you?
