Mmm, mmm
Ooh, yeah, hey, woo, ooh, yeah
Woo, woo, oh, yeah
Woo, ooh, ooh, ooh, woo, ooh, ooh, ooh
Mmm, yeah, alright now

I see you and I know you see me
As we go by, our eyes never meet
Seems to be an invisible screen
You keep your side of the street, yeah

Just another lost face in a crowd
Sayin' nothin' but I'm shoutin' out loud
From my heart, wonderin' why it should be
The lonely lives that we lead

Are you so different to me?
I know you can't possibly be
We're two in a million
But you could be the one
That makes my perception complete

We go by like parallel lines
Livin' out our separate lives
If only we'd cross the space in between
How beautiful it could be
How beautiful it could be

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

We're all so busy tryna get ahead
We don't even see the people close to the edge
We're tryna find a line if we don't go insane
Maybe we should just turn our heads

Are you so different to me?
I know you can't possibly be
We're two in a million
But you could be the one
That makes my perception complete

We go by our parallel lines
Livin' out our separate lives
If only we'd cross the space in between
How beautiful it could be
How beautiful it could be

Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah

Just imagine if those lines would come together
For a moment in a world where there's no strangers
Make a little effort together
Close up the distance between all these parallel lines
(Close up the distance between all these parallel lines)
Close up the distance between all these parallel lines

Ohh, mmm, hmm, yeah
Play it for me now, eh, eh, eh, yeah

Dubudda, doo, doo, doo, ohh, yeah, hey, yeah
Dubudda, doo, doo, doo, yeah, hey, yeah, hey
(Parallel lines)

Doo, doo, doo, oh, ahha, ahha
(Parallel lines)
Doo, doo, doo, doo, doo, ohh, ohh, oh, yeah
(Parallel lines)

How beautiful it could be, parallel lines
(Ohh, oh, yeah, eh, eh, eh, yeah)
How beautiful it could be, parallel lines
(It could be beautiful, yeah, hey)

How beautiful it could be, parallel lines
How beautiful it could be, parallel lines
(Beautiful, oh, it could be beautiful)

Baby, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
(Parallel lines)
It could be beautiful, beautiful
(Parallel lines)
Beautiful
(Parallel lines)
