“Propinquity” Lyrics

Mike: This is the introduction to “Two Different Roads”. So you’ll hear it again in a minute.

I’ve known for a long time the kind of girl you are
Of a smile that covers teardrops
The way your head yields to your heart
Of things you’ve kept inside that most girls couldn’t bear
I’ve known you for a long time, but I’ve just begun to care

I’ve known of all the heartache, and I’ve known of all the pain
I’ve seen you when the sun shines
And I’ve seen you when it rains
I’ve seen you make a look of love from just an icy stare
I’ve known you for a long time, but I’ve just begun to care

I know that I’ve been blind
To not have loved you all this time
But the image of you wasn’t clear
I guess that I’ve been standing too near

And it’s taken me a while, but I have finally found
What you are to me, and that’s what really counts
And what you are to me is something we can share
I’ve known you for a long time, but I’ve just begun to care

Mike: Red?
[break]

And it’s taken me a while, but I have finally found
What you are to me, and that’s what really counts
And what you are to me is something we can share
I’ve known you for a long time, but I’ve just begun to care
Yes, I’ve known you for a long time, but I’ve just begun to care
