I was around, but you didn't notice me back then
I was the bright eyed boy that watched you
And wondered how it would have been
To hold your hand, to touch the freckles on your skin
I'da give up everything I had to take a walk with you back then

We were only kids
Ah, but you were two years over me
So I tried to grow up fast to catch you
So you would never want to leave
Seems I was always on the outside looking in
You were the diamond girl and when you walked by
I was nothing but a grin

Oh, in the quiet of night
I'd lie awake and follow stars
I'd see your bedroom light
All the way across the park
Oh, then I'd dream you in my arms 'til dawn

I watched you grow into a woman of the world
I saw you pack your car and drive away
So you could be a college girl
I waited long for you to come home holidays
Oh, I knew I'd surely die
If I ever saw a lover's arm around you waist

Oh, in the quiet of night
I'd lie awake and follow stars
I'd see your bedroom light
All the way across the park
Oh, then I'd dream you in my arms 'til dawn

Some things you never say
You always think you will one day
The secret that I kept
The valentine you never even read

I thought I saw you in the market yesterday
You had a basket full of children
And a look that said that you'd had better days
I caught your eye
And saw that you remembered me
Oh, when your face lit up
You looked exactly like you still were seventeen

Oh, in the quiet of night
I'd lie awake and follow stars
I'd see your bedroom light
All the way across the park
Oh, then I'd dream you in my arms 'til dawn

Some things you never say
You always think you will one day
The secret that I kept
The valentine you never even read

Some things you never say
I always thought I would one day
The secret that I kept
The valentine I never even sent
