(Lee Greenwood)

She gently brushed my arm as she walked by me
& she turned & said "I'm sorry" with a smile
She was everything I ever dreamed of meeting
But I quickly closed my eyes & walked the other way, 'cause...

CHORUS:
You can't fall in love when you're cryin'
Please don't try to look into my eyes
If I said I loved you I'd be lyin'
'Cause the memory of yesterday is still in my mind

She caught me just before I reached the corner
& she asked me most politely for my name
She was more than just a girl, she was an angel
& I wanted so to lie, but I told her just the same: You see...

(chorus)

She winked & said "I know just how you're feelin'
& I know there's nothing I can say
That can change the way you feel, so here's my number
You can call me on the phone when the feeling goes away
'Cause I know..."

(chorus)

    It appears that the song is about a couple that just fell apart. The singer is sad, depressed, and crying. He meets this other lady who is everything he has always dreamed of, but the lady in his past is who he really is still in love with.
