Verse 1:
There's a boy in the window
I wonder what he's thinking 'bout
Just looking right over
What's he trying to figure out
With a smile in his eyes
Staring straight down at me
I'm wondering why
Am I captivating possibly
What's so great 'bout watching me

Chorus:
He's waving his hand
As he's calling my name
He's waiting for me
Like a child with no shame
Do I give in
And follow that smile

It's so hard to believe
That I'm the one he's looking for
It's all just one sweet dream
But so unlike the dreams before
'Cause this one is real
And I know that I'm awake
How could I feel
Like I'm beginning to break
Thinking this is just one huge mistake

Chorus:
But he's waving his hand
As he's calling my name
He's waiting for me
Like a child with no shame
Do I give in
And follow that smile

Bridge:
All of this time
I've been in doubt
And as they say
You should do without
But how can that be
If I'll never see
'Cause chances are taken
You took one with me

Chorus:
When you were waving your hand
And called out my name
And waited for me
Like a child with no shame
And on that dear day
I decided to give in
I followed that smile
Where ever it has been

I followed that smile
On that dear day
Decided to let go
To hear what he had to say

I followed that smile
On that dear day
Decided to let go
And Heard what he had to say
