No one looked, I walked by
Just an invitation would have been just fine
I said, "No to him" again and again
First he took my heart then he ran

No, no one knows how I feel
What I mean unless you read between my lines
One man walked away from me
First he took my hand, he said, "Take me"

Stand back, stand back
In the middle of my room I did not hear from you
Well it's alright, it's alright
To be standing in a line, standing in a line
I would

Do not turn away my friend
Well like a willow when I can bend
No man said he called my name
You know, no man came

So I went on down road away from you
Maybe my attention was more than I could do with
One man said he would not call
Then he asked me for too much
He said, "Take me"

Stand back, stand back
In the middle of my room I did not hear from you
Well it's alright, it's alright
To be standing in a line, to be standing in a line
Well I would

So I went on down road away from you
Maybe my attention was more than I could do with
Well that man said he would not call
Then he asked me for too much
He said, "Take me"

Stand back, stand back
In the middle of my room I did not hear from you
Well it's alright, it's alright
To be standing in a line, to be standing in a line
Well I would

Stand back
Stand back
Stand back
