(don mclean)When I see you on the streetI lose my concentrationAnd just the thought that we might meetCreates anticipationWon’t you look my way once before you goAnd my eyes will say what you ought to knowWell, I’ve been thinking about you day and nightAnd I don’t know if it will work out rightBut somehow I think that it just mightIf we tryFaces come and faces go in circular rotationBut something yearns within to growBeyond infatuationWon’t you look my way once before you goAnd my eyes will say what you ought to knowWell, you got me standing deaf and blindCause I see love as just a state of mindAnd who knows what it is that we might findIf we tryYou’re walking a different directionFrom most people I’ve metYou’re giving me signs of affectionI don’t usually getI don’t want you to pledge your futureThe future’s not yours to giveJust stand there a little longerAnd let me watch while you live’cause when I see you on the streetI lose my concentrationAnd just the thought that we might meetCreates anticipationWon’t you look my way once before you goAnd my eyes will say what you ought to knowWell, I’ve been thinking about you day and nightAnd I don’t know if it will work out rightBut somehow I think that it just mightIf we trySomehow I think that it just mightIf we tryYes,somehow I think that it just mightIf we try
