I saw two dreamers dreamin'
They almost caused a spark
I saw two lovers in paradise
Right back at the start
I saw to minds in the world set free
But it almost broke my heart
Isn't it strange to be right now
Havin' you close to me
Much to my surprise

I saw two schemes schemin'
They almost caused a lark
They were two brave souls on a wild blue spree
Right back at the park
They were like two ships and they sailed right by
Each other in the dark

Wouldn't ya like to be right now
Out where the actors play
So much for your disguise

I saw two souls out searchin'
They said their last goodbyes
And I saw two hearts of passion then
Much to my surprise
I saw two hearts on passion bent
The kind which mystifies

It is so strange to be right now
Having you on my knee
Much to my surprise

I gotta make you see somehow

I saw two minds that wandered
They almost caused a wreck
They were all checked out for a wild blue sea
When someone cried hit the deck
I saw two minds in the world set wise
But I almost broke my specs

Wouldn't ya like to be right now
Out where the actors play
So much for your disguise

Much to my surprise
