You are the one I would've wanted
The one I would've longed for from afar
But, you wouldn't have even noticed me back in them days
'Cause it was older dudes and cigarettes and cars
Now, every time I hear them old songs
From pop radio of our early teenage years
I feel the yearning of a young kid
In the backseat waiting for the chance to steer

You spent them years in Minnesota
I lived in Cleveland so far away
I think it's just as well back then I didn't know you
See, I think I probably would've been afraid

To say much to you as your beauty blossomed
And, with it, all the confidence that came
And, I know I would've noticed you at every single turn
Wondering if you even knew my name

I think it's funny how the passing time can be a friend
See, that ain't how I tend to view it, usually
But, if it wasn't for the passing days and the passing years
You surely wouldn't be sitting here with me
I hear them songs, they make me think of younger days
Days I wish I could've spent with you
Some would say that things just have a way of working out
I'd say that if you're lucky then they do
Then, suddenly one fine Spring day I found you
Always believed when I was ready that you would come
Then the miles and years between us disappeared so easily
We gave each other someplace to stop running
You are the Beauty that I dreamed of
You are the one I won't let go
You are the Lover of my lifetime
You are the Friend I've always known

Since the days I would've been afraid to show myself to you
Pent up and frustrated all the same
But, I know I would've noticed you at every single turn
Wondering if you even knew my name
