We were walking 'long the ocean
Together hand in hand
When I stopped to write "I love you" in the sand
And when I looked up you were standing
Ten miles out at sea
And in a sweat
I woke up from that crazy dream
As I reached to hold you in the morning light
It was just your pillow
I clung to so tight

(chorus)
For a minute there
I thought it was you
For a minute there
My prayers had finally come true
For a minute there
I began again to live
What I wouldn't give
For just a minute there

Five o'clock on Friday
Sitting at a light
When this angel walked right by me
On my right
And the cars all started honking
As my feet hit the ground
And though I chased and called
You never turned around
Oh the walk, the hair, the perfume
Where the same
How I wished she would have answered
To your name

(Repeat Chorus)

Tonight the stars in heaven
Are bright as they can be
And I swear one of them
Is winking down at me

(Repeat Chorus)

What I wouldn't give
How I'd love to live
For just a minute there
