I walked along the avenue I never thought I'd meet a girl like you Meet a girl like you. With auburn hair and tawny eyes The kind of eyes that hypnotize me through Hypnotize me through And I ran, I ran so far away I just ran, I ran all night and day I couldn't get away. A cloud appears above your head A beam of light comes shining down on you Shining down on you. The cloud is moving nearer still Aurora Borealis comes in view Aurora comes in view And I ran, I ran so far away I just ran, I ran all night and day I couldn't get away.
