What if when you were ten

You'd committed your life to paper and pen

And when you moved from your state

It was to draw pictures, not a penny to your name

And you moved into the space below me

Would have noticed you crossing our street

And I'd know

I'd still know

You glow

 

When if you'd been born in Spain

No one speaks English in the town you were raised

When you'd cross the sea

You'd have still found me

 

You'd have still come in some Sunday afternoon

I, I wouldn't need a reason to talk to you

I'd have just mustered up a cómo estás?

You'd have tried, how are you?

And I'd know

I'd still you

You glow

You glow

You glow

You glow

 

What if you'd won the lottery

And you'd wanted to take me

To Amsterdam

Cozy place in Paris 

I hear the lights are nice on the Champs-Élysées 

But you'd never wonder why I'd stayed

I'd say no

So you could know you still Glow

You glow

You glow (All on your own)

You glow (All on your own)

You glow

 

You were always coming in some Sunday afternoon

I would never need a reason to talk to you

I'd have found something to say

You'd have found a way to know my name

And I'd know

I'd still know
