lyrics

I felt my heart in my throat when I caught a glimpse of you in the distance
After all of this time, it'd be so good to talk with you once more
But when I shouted out to you, you were oblivious to my existence
Maybe the memories were still red & raw?

How would this moment play out? I had long fantasized
Would you meet me and greet me, or was I still despised
Then suddenly I realised

That it wasn't you after all
It was just a pretty girl, with the same kind of hair
And the kind of dress, more or less, that you used to wear
And sort of the same height, and when I caught her in a certain light
It was enough that I couldn't help stare
But no response when I call
And I knew it wasn't you after all.

I pretended that I was waving at someone right behind her
But it was too late, too late for me to tactically disengage
On closer inspection, I'm sure you would've outshined her
My accidental familiarity turned her puzzlement to anger and rage

This mistaken identity could perhaps have endeared
But when I tried to make light it was worse than I'd feared
Coz now she just thinks that I'm weird

And it wasn't you after all
It was just a pretty girl, with the same kind of hair
And the kind of dress, more or less, that you used to wear
And sort of the same height, and when I caught her in a certain light
It was enough that I couldn't help stare
But no response when I call
And I knew it wasn't you after all.
It was just a pretty girl, with the same kind of hair
And the kind of dress, more or less, that you used to wear...
I couldn't help stare
But no response when I call
And I knew it wasn't you after all.
But no response when I call
And I knew it wasn't you after all.
But no response when I call
And I knew it wasn't you after all.
