6. Could It Happen To Me


Do you know what it means to me
To delight in your company?
Could it happen to me?
Do you know what I’m certain of?
I would love to fall in love
Could it happen to me?

Hey won’t you look at me?
Now I’m cracked wide open
I can’t conceal
My all-over trembling
I’m acting strange
And while you’re out of reach
I never change

God knows – I’m beside myself
If a tear’s a crime, then I must confess
My guilty secret, I’m not ashamed
Take me as I am, an average man

Oh boy is it getting rough
When my old world charm isn’t quite enough?
I’d throw you cantos, I’d jazz ’em up
But when I lay me down, you don’t pick up

What’s more, it’s a crying shame
Only this time no one but myself to blame
All I touch turns to dust
It’s right there in my cards, I ought to cut

Let us sing of the tortured heart
And a lonely soul in this world apart
As he plays a fear, takes a little pain
And move our separate ways again

Is it easy to say “I do”?
At this moment I love you
See beyond me, it’s true
Now that evening is closing in
Should I light that fire again?
Could it happen to me?
Did it happen to you?
