Colorblind James Experience – I Want To Know You lyrics

First time I saw you, you were standing alone
Waiting for a bus to take you home
I wanna know you, I wanna know you
Saw you down on Barker Street now
I was hoping we might meet now

Last time I saw you, you looked lost in a crowd
Racing in the shade of a thunder cloud
I tried to say, "Hi" but you passed me by
No need to fret, no need to worry
It's not like I am in a hurry

Maybe today, maybe tomorrow
Maybe a life of hurt and sorrow
Take comes and don't complain
Nobody's listening anyway

So now you're lying 'neath a willow tree
Stretching out your lunch-break probably
I wanna know you, I wanna know you
Your guard is down I [?] caught you there plain [?]
I was hoping this would happen
