She gently brushed my arm as she walked by me
And she turned and said "I'm sorry" with a smile
She was everything I ever dreamed of meeting
But I quickly closed my eyes & walked the other way, 'cause...

You can't fall in love when you're cryin'
Please don't try to look into my eyes
If I said I loved you I'd be lyin'
'Cause the memory of yesterday is still in my mind

She caught me just before I reached the corner
And she asked me most politely for my name
She was more than just a girl, she was an angel
And I wanted so to lie, but I told her just the same: You see...

You can't fall in love when you're cryin'
Please don't try to look into my eyes
If I said I loved you I'd be lyin'
'Cause the memory of yesterday is still in my mind

She winked & said "I know just how you're feelin'
And I know there's nothing I can say
That can change the way you feel, so here's my number
You can call me on the phone when the feeling goes away
'Cause I know..."

You can't fall in love when you're cryin'
Please don't try to look into my eyes
If I said I loved you I'd be lyin'
'Cause the memory of yesterday is still in my mind
