As I pass, I see you smile
It makes my emotions just go wild.
I'd like to tell you how I feel
But I know my fantasies cannot be real.
Your heart belongs still to the past,
To some lover who had you last.
You can't return my love for you,
I already know this to be true.
Despite this, my love goes on,
Even as my last hope is gone.
I cannot have you for myself
While your mind still lingers on someone else.
I return your smile rather weakly
And wave the fingers of one hand meekly.
I sigh as you pass out of sight
And wonder if my conscience could be right.
Is this but a hopeless dream?
Are all these facts the way they seem?
Will we never share a passionate love?
Will the day never come I've been dreaming of?
The day when you and I are holding hands,
Both of us knowing we're more than friends.
I close my eyes and imagine when
You will pass my way again.
