I have often walked down this street before,
But the pavement always stayed beneath my feet before;
All at once am I several stories high,
Know - ing I'm on the street where you live.

Are there lilac trees in the heart of town?
Can you hear a lark in an - y oth - er part of town?
Does en - chantment pour out of every door?
No, it's just on the street where you live.

And oh, the towering feeling,
Just to know somehow you are near;
The o - ver -[C#m7-5] powering feeling
That any second you may suddenly appear.

Peo - ple stop and stare; they don't bother me,
For there's nowhere else on earth that I would rather be.
Let the time go by -- I won't care if I
Can be here on the street where you live.
