Blink of an Eye

Slow the car and letís get out
Don't want to miss the subtle things
You rarely see this kind of light
Itís such a lovely evening
You never know what little prize
Youíll find here in the grass
A souvenir to put in you hair
Petals of a flower so maybe this day will last

Maybe Iíve been afraid to believe that
What I wanted exists
In the blink of the eye
Thereís a moment of true happiness

Tell me as we roll along
Can you make a story up?
You can wander any place
But will you bring me back love
Both my eyes are on the road
My hands are on the wheel
Move over here and sit real close
And tell me a secret any man would love to hear

I saw you on the side walk
And I almost lost the wheel
Turned around to look at you
And the knowing in your eyes
Was a soulful surprise
Oh, I Knew

Slow the car and letís get out
Donít want to miss the subtle things
I used to run this very road
And never noticed anything
Maybe I forgot the world was so mysterious
You sent a spark to light my heart
It burned right through me
Like you knew that it would wake me up

Maybe Iíve been afraid to believe that
What I wanted was you
Thereís a moment in time
When you somehow know what to do
In the blink of an eye
I believe that Iíll know what is true
