I remember once
when I was young And I was coming back
from someplace– A movie or something– I was on the subway. And there was a girl
sitting across from me, And she was wearing
this dress That was buttoned
clear up right to here. She was the most
beautiful thing
I’d ever seen. And I was shy then, So when she would
look at me, I would look away. Then afterwards,
when I would look back, She would look away. Then I got
to where I was going
to get off… And got off.
The doors closed. And as the train
was pulling away, She looked
right at me And gave me
the most incredible smile. It was awful. I wanted to tear
the doors open, And I went back
every night, The same time,
for two weeks. But she never
showed up. That was 30 years ago. And I don’t think
that there’s a day
that goes by That I don’t think
about her. I don’t want that
to happen again. Just one dance? ♪ [ orchestra ]
