  • I was caught up in your brown eyes
    Lookin' up at the blue skies
    Really made me realize
    They don't make 'em quite like you
    Cinnamon skin in the sunshine
    Stopped time in the moonlight
    Really made me feel like
    Like I could fall for you

    Then one day you were just gone
    And I've been wonderin' for so long

    Oh, was it your heart or mine?
    Was it just the wrong time, Gabrielle?
    We never got very far
    But, girl, wherever you are
    I wish you well
    Gabrielle

    You were pickin' flowers on a side road
    Leanin' back on a fence post
    Couldn't help but notice
    You were wantin' somethin' more
    I was starin' off in the distance
    Blinked twice and I missed it
    Can we just rewind it
    Like it was before?

    And I woke up and you were gone
    And I've been wonderin' for so long

    Oh, was it your heart or mine?
    Was it just the wrong time, Gabrielle?
    We never got very far
    But, girl, wherever you are
    I wish you well
    Oh, Gabrielle
    Oh

    And the miles, they fly by
    Until you land back home again
    And do you ever wonder
    What we might have been?

    I can still see ya standin' there
    Sun shinin' behind your dress
    Your silhouette
    Mmm, so perfect
    Take me back there
    Take me back there

    Oh, was it your heart or mine?
    Was it just the wrong time, Gabrielle?
    We never got very far
    But, girl, wherever you are
    I wish you well
    Oh, Gabrielle
    Oh, Gabrielle
    Oh, was it just the wrong time?
