I have often walked
Down this street before
But the pavement always stayed
Beneath my feet before
All at once am I
Several stories high
Knowing I'm
On the street
Where you live

Are there lilac trees
In the heart of town
Can you hear a lark
In any other part of town
Does enchantment pour
Out of every door
No it's just on the street
Where you live

And oh the towering feeling
Just to know
Somehow you are near
The overpow'ring feeling
That any second
You may suddenly appear

You know
People stop and stare
They don't bother me
For there's nowhere else on earth
That I would rather be
Let the time go by
I don't care if I
Can be here
On the street
Where you live

And oh the towering feeling
Just to know
Somehow you are near
The overpow'ring feeling
That any second
You may suddenly appear

You know
People stop and stare
They don't bother me
For there's nowhere else on earth
That I would rather be
Let the time go by
I don't care if I
Can be here
On the street
Where you live
Can be here
On the street
Where you live
