  • Thousands of people
    Live in this town
    And I had to run into him
    When I saw him there
    On that busy street
    Those feelings came back again

    There was no where to run
    No where to hide
    He walked up to me
    Looked in my eyes

    And still
    The world stood still
    I couldn't move
    And all I could feel
    Was this aching in my heart
    Saying I loved him
    Still

    He said how've you been
    It's great to see you again
    You're really a sight for sore eyes
    I said I can't complain
    Oh, I'm doin' fine
    We talked
    As the people rushed by

    We laughed about old times
    And all we went through
    That's when he hugged me
    And said I've missed you

    And still
    My world stood still
    I couldn't move
    And all I could feel
    Was this aching in my heart
    Saying I loved him
    Still

    That's when she walked up to him
    He said this is my wife
    I gave my best smile
    But I was dying inside
    He said we gotta go now
    It's getting late
    It was so good to see you
    And then they walked away

    And still
    My world stood still
    I couldn't move
    And all I could feel
    Was this aching in my heart
    Saying I loved him.....
