Are you crazy man?
You didn't notice her?
You must be blind.
'Cause all I do now
Is think about how
She will be mine.

I couldn't stand up,
I couldn't sit down,
One look at her and I stumble around.

One look at her,
I get irrational
But she ties my tongue.
I saw her downtown
On a cloudy day
And she brought the sun.

She's not a part of the scene,
She don't socialise,
She does her own thing.
She's ahead of her time,
Just the right speed.
She is staggering.

I couldn't stand up,
I couldn't sit down,
One look at her and I stumble around.

She is staggering.
She is staggering.

She's uncommonly heavenly.
She is so rare.
She's beautiful,
Exceptional,
But she doesn't care.


I couldn't stand up,
I couldn't sit down,
One look at her and I stumble around.
I couldn't get to sleep,
Man, and I couldn't eat.
She's all that I want,
She is all that I need.

She is staggering.
She is staggering.
She is staggering.
She is staggering.

    General CommentWonderful love song. Hard to believe such a meaningful song could come from a show like Pete and Pete. Don't get me wrong..I Love Pete and Pete, but to think that all of these awesome Polaris songs were written for a show like that is kinda crazy! I've got the album "Music From The Adventures Of Pete and Pete" and it's just awesoem..

    General CommentI agree that this is one of the most amazing love songs ever composed. If a guy actually felt this way about me, I would have found the love of my life.

    General CommentBTW, I always thought the lyrics were "I saw her downtown" not "I saw her bow down".
