lyrics

It isn't anything in particular
She just has this way about her
On her bicycle ... in summer
She's from the better part of town for certain
Sometimes i dream this dream that she and me ... that she and i
are living off in some little villa
Sometimes i go to church just to watch her pray
She isn't overly pretty, just... there's something
Sometimes i go to church just to watch her
Kneeling there all devoutly
Kneeling there all devoutly

Gimme some of you attention
Before I loose all sense of proportion
There isn't anything I wouldn't do
Look at me !
When i'm thinking of you

And so things'd go on like this
Her passing by on cobblestone streets in summer
On hot days
Before there was air conditioning
Sometimes i'd go to church just to watch her pray
Kneeling there all devoutly

Ah but i'm not convinced of your conviction
Give me more than just a genuflection
I'm waiting on your undivided attention
Look at me !
When i'm thinking of you
