Lyrics

The Glance
Ⓒ A. Grattan

A casual glance, while driving to work
A quick second look and she wonders (pause)
Was this the one she let slip away
Years ago in her younger days

It was only a glance, a single glance
That sent her back to an earlier time
Reflecting on memories of her youth
Maybe more fantasy than actual truth

A casual glance, as he?s walking along
A quick second look and he wonders (pause)
Was this the one he let get away
Years ago in his younger days

It was only a glance, a single glance
That sent him back to an earlier time
Reflecting on memories of his youth
Maybe more fantasy than actual truth
That casual glance from across the room
A quick second look and they wonder
Was that the one that they once knew
Years ago in their youth

It was only a glance, a single glance
That sent them back to an earlier time
Reflecting on memories of their youth
Likely more fantasies than actual truth

That casual glance, so innocent
The quick second look that followed
Casting a pause in their day
Soon to be back on their way

It was only a glance, a single glance
And now its back to reality
Living a life they?ve known so long
Reflecting on memories until they?re gone
