May not know enough about you, babe
That can only come in time
Only know enough to make you stay
On my mind

Though I met you only yesterday
And only for a moment then
I knew I couldn't let you get away
I just can see you, girl

I can be the one you love
Let me be the one you need
Take a look into your heart
Try to find a place for me
