  • Lyrics
  • On the other side of a street I knew
    Stood a girl that looked like you
    I guess that's deja vu
    But I thought this can't be true
    'Cause you moved to west L.A or New York or Santa Fe
    Or where ever to get away from me

    Oh but that one night
    Was more than just right
    I didn't leave you cause I was all through
    Oh I was overwhelmed and frankly scared as hell
    Because I really fell for you

    Oh I swear to ya, I'll be there for ya
    This is not a drive by
    Just a shy guy looking for a two ply
    Hefty bag to hold my love
    When you move me everything is groovy
    They don't like it sue me, mm way you do me
    Oh I swear to you, I'll be there for you
    This is not a drive by

    On the other side of a downward spiral
    My love for you went viral
    And I loved you every mile you drove away
    But now here you are again
    So let's skip the "how you been"
    And get down to the "more than friends" at last

    Oh but that one night
    Is still the highlight
    I didn't need you until I came to

    And I was overwhelmed and frankly scared as hell
    Because I really fell for you

    Oh I swear to you, I'll be there for you
    This is not a drive by
    Just a shy guy looking for a two ply
    Hefty bag to hold my love
    When you move me everything is groovy
    They don't like it sue me, mm way you do me
    Oh I swear to ya, I'll be there for ya
    This is not a drive by

    Please believe that when I leave
    There's nothing up my sleeve but love for you
    And a little time to get my head together too

    On the other side of a street I knew
    Stood a girl that looked like you
    I guess that's deja vu
    But I thought this can't be true, 'cause

    Oh I swear to you, I'll be there for you
    This is not a drive by
    Just a shy guy looking for a two ply
    Hefty bag to hold my love
    When you move me everything is groovy
    They don't like it sue me, mm way you do me
    Oh I swear to ya, I'll be there for ya
    This is not a drive byWriter/s: AMUND BJORKLUND, ESPEN LIND, PAT MONAHAN
