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
Knowing I'm on the street where you live

And 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 nowhere else on earth that I would rather be
Let the time go by I don't care if I can be here
On the street where you live

And oh the towering feeling just to know
Somehow you are near
An overpowering feeling that any second
It may suddenly appear

People stop and stare baby 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

People stop and stare baby 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
Can be here
On the street where you live
