On the Street Where You Live

Down the street before, 
But the pavement always 
Stayed beneath my feet before. 
All at once am I 
Several stories high, 
Knowing I'm on the street where you live. 

Are there lilac trees 
In the heart of town? 
 Can you hear a lark in any other part of town? 
Does enchantment 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 overpowering feeling 
That any second you may suddenly appear. 
People stop and stare 
They don't bother me, 
For there's no where 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.
