You couldn't pick him from a line
You couldn't spare a second of yr time
With too many things on yr mind and I know just how it feels
When yr making big plans with too much time on your hands
Knock it down to see where it stands when you know that it's not real
It's hard just to get it back with yr heart intact
I've been too long taking this and that
And I wonder where you go when you don't come back
Like the girl in the movie sings
I've been in love and it's the greatest thing, it's the greatest thing

To see yr love up in the sky
Don't even stop to wonder why
Just sit and watch them as they're passing by
And then keep it like it's free
I'm waiting for it to be good
Just like I always thought it would
And know I'm thinking that it never could
And I know that it's not me
When it comes with an awful sound
From an awful town
I'm burning up when you're coming down and
I wonder where you go when you're not around
Like the girl in the movie sings
I've been in love and it's the greatest thing, it's the greatest thing

It's hard just to get it back with your heart intact
I've been too long taking this and that
And I wonder where you go when you don't come back
Like the girl in the movie sings
The girl in the movie sings
I've been in love and it's the greatest thing it's the greatest thing
I've been in love and it's the greatest thing it's the greatest thing
I've been in love it's the greatest thing it's the greatest thing
