He saw her standing at the bar

Her skirt was short, her hair was long

She raised her lashes and she smiled

And he knew

He knew she was the one

And he couldnt look away

 

Made conversation, walked her home

He was the gentleman in every way

She gave him her number and she smiled

And he knew

Knew hed be calling every day

He couldnt keep away

 

They found a house, they called it Home

The roses bloomed around the door

He mentioned children and she smiled

And he knew

He knew life doesnt get better

He knew he must never let it ever

Slip away

 

Oooh, dont let it slip away

He saw her standing at the bar

Her hair was short, her legs were long

She raised her glass to him and smiled

And he knew

He knew hed live to rue this day

But he couldnt look away

 

Look away, look away

Dont let it slip away

He couldnt look away

 

She was standing in the hall

When he finally came home

He made a joke, she didnt smile

She knew

And he knew there was nothing he could say

And he had to look away.

Look Away
