I see you see me walking down the street
There’s a bit of concrete under our feet
You’re on the opposite side of me,
at a waving distance from here

I like the way you walk elegantly
With a swish in your hip and back
That make my doubts rise angrily,
as you hypnotize my soul

And I still won’t say
a word
And I still can’t take
that step

Now you’re sitting down in the pub
Looking clean from a trip to the tub
You’re on the opposite corner of me,
at a shouting distance from here

I like the way you drink your white russian
With a sip and a swirl of your tongue
That makes my heart play African percussion,
as you stare right in my soul


I gotta make a move, I don’t know how
I’m talking nonsense, I’d better shut up
She’s looking great but she gives me doubts
And suddenly I feel so puny inside.

Maybe I’d just break the silence
But then again what have I got to lose
I get up and I make my way
I say Hi and I brace myself

And then I see you leaving in a hurry
What has happened is kinda funny
She’s on an opposite level of me,
that’s nowhere close from here

And then I notice the dripping pool
Is that your drink on the floor?
You must think I’m such a fool
Spilling your drink like that
