Passing Glance...

Perdida (Lost)

Was that passing glance his lost chance?

On a windy day in a crowded street
I was on my way when I saw her.
Looking out of place, in another world
The sadness on her face made me shiver
But I didn’t stop, had to catch my plane
And since that day I’ve never been the same.

(Perdida)
I see her face, I hear her callin’
Could it be that I have fallen for her?
(Perdida)
Everywhere I go it seems
She’s in my head and in my dreams, I’m in a blur.

Even from afar, that brief passing glance
Like a shooting star, really moved me.
Something in her eyes seemed to penetrate
Me down deep inside, she saw right through me
But I didn’t stop, had to catch my plane
Until this day I’ve never felt the same.

(Perdida)
I see her face, I hear her callin’
Could it be that I have fallen for her?
(Perdida)
Everywhere I go it seems
She’s in my head and in my dreams, I’m in a blur.

Lost forever, gone with time
That brief moment still etched in my mind
Searching everywhere I go
Got to find her once again to know…

Perdida…

A fleeting chance encounter and the unexpected and bewildering longing for connection unfulfilled... A passing glance lost to the moment..
