When you walk slowly by
I don't know what to say
Not hi or even hello.
All I'd really like to say is
I think the world of you.
But alas I am not bold
And all I can do is watch
As you walk slowly by.
The wind whispers your name
And the stars shine in your eyes.
My heart melts away
when I see you near
But you walk slowly by.
Soon you will leave
And we never really met.
Not a hug, shake or a sweet kiss
To tell you that I wish you were mine.
As you leave I won't be able to say goodbye.
So all you'll do is walk slowly by.
