"If We Try" as written by and Don Mclean....
When I see you on the street
I lose my concentration
Just the thought that we might meet
Creates anticipation

Won't you look my way once before you go
And my eyes will say what you ought to know
Well, I've been thinkin' about you day and night
And I don't know if it'll work out right
But somehow I think that it just might
If we try

Faces come and faces go
In circular rotation
But something yearns within to grow
Beyond infatuation

Won't you look my way once before you go
And my eyes will say what you ought to know
Well you've got me standin' deaf and blind
'Cause I see love as just a state of mind
And who knows what it is that we might find
If we try
And who knows what it is that we might find
If we try

You've walkin' a diff'rent direction
From most people I've met
You've givin' me signs of affection
I don't usually get
I don't want you to pledge your future
The future's not yours to give
Just stand there a little longer
And let me watch you while you leave

'Cause when I see you on the street
I lose my concentration
And just the thought that we might meet
Creates anticipation

Won't you look my way once before you go
And my eyes will say what you ought to know
Well, I've been thinkin' about you day and night
And I don't know if it'll work out right
But somehow I think that it just might
If we try

Somehow I think that it just might
If we try
Yes, somehow I think that it just might
If we try
