I have often walkedDown the street before,But the pavement alwaysStayed beneath my feet before.All at once am iSeveral stories high,Knowing Im on the street where you live.Are there lilac treesIn the heart of town? Can you hear a lark in any other part of town? Does enchantment pourOut of every door? No, its just on the street where you live.And oh, the towering feelingJust to know somehow you are nearThe overpowering feelingThat any second you may suddenly appear.People stop and stareThey dont bother me,For theres no where else on earthThat I would rather be.Let the time go by,I wont care if iCan be here on the street where you live.(alan lerner, frederick loewe)
