Alone at a corner table
She was watching me watching her
I was singing about an old flame burning
She was hanging onto every word

I was pouring out my feelings
She was pouring out the wine
Through the smoke and the beer, it was perfectly clear
That we were touching each other's minds

It was love ten feet away
Imagine her in my arms with that look on her face
Lying somewhere in some shadowy place
It was love just ten feet away

I just knew my closing song would do it
I knew that I was heaven bound
I could tell she was moved but before I was through
This stranger walked up and sat down

He was trying his best to impress her
But she never took her eyes off me
When he got up and left, I said to myself
Whoa, what a night this will be

It was love ten feet away
Imagine her in my arms with that look on her face
Lying somewhere in some shadowy place
It was love just ten feet away

It was love ten feet away
Imagine her in my arms with that look on her face
Lying somewhere in some shadowy place
It was love just ten feet away
