Instead

We first in a crowded hall on graduation day
She signed my paper, smiled at me and walked away
Then we met in an empty hall the size of my lonely heart
Optimism called my bluff and that dream fell apart

Now I’ve been told if you’re in love then go ahead
But ever since I sing instead

Many times I’ve bet my pride and ventured to the door
And though I’ve failed I’ll here confide I wish to seek once more
I’m lonely and I need a hand to help me through the day
And with her strength I’d rise and stay so help me Lord I pray

Now I’ve been told if you’re in love then go ahead
But ever since I sing instead
