Johnny Paycheck – For A Minute There lyrics

You brushed by me, oh, you came so near
That I could smell the perfume in your hair
An old memory, it took me back in time
And my heart stood still for just one minute there

For a minute there I forgot where I was
Remembering only when you used to care
And as you walked by me I almost touched your arm
I nearly called your name for a minute there

The man beside you, he looked so satisfied
Knowing that's his wedding ring you wear
It cost him nothing for a lifetime in your arms
But I'd give all I own for just one minute there
Yes, I'd give all I own for just one minute there
