Glances

You cast glances at me
I do my best not to catch them.
They are just a bit too insistent1
to mean nothing.
 
Hey, you look so familiar to me
when you sit here in my favourite bar.
You cast glances at me
I do my best not to catch them.
 
Do you see the same things I see?
I would like so much to see through your eyes,
like so much to see through your eyes.
I would like so much to see through your eyes
what is it you're feeling right now.
Through flickering light and smoke,
among hundreds of people,
our glances cross the room.
Oh, I long to follow them.
Do you see the same things I see?
I would like so much to see through your eyes,
like so much to see through your eyes.
 
You cast glances at me
and I notice how I catch them,
even though that doesn't mean anything.
It sets so many things in motion.
Hey, you look so familiar to me.
You're sitting in my favourites.
You cast glances at me
and I notice how I catch them,
 
Do you see the same things I see?
I would like so much to see through your eyes,
like so much to see through your eyes.
I would like so much to see through your eyes
what is it you're feeling right now.
Through flickering light and smoke,
among hundreds of people,
our glances cross the room.
Oh, I long to follow them.
Do you see the same things I see?
I would like so much to see through your eyes,
like so much to see through your eyes.
 
You cast glances at me
and I notice how I catch them,
You cast glances at me
Maybe it's the beginning of something.
 
Do you see the same things I see?
I would like so much to see through your eyes,
like so much to see through your eyes.
I would like so much to see through your eyes
what is it you're feeling right now.

among hundreds of people,
our glances cross the room.
Oh, I long to follow them.
Do you see the same things I see?
I would like so much to see through your eyes,
like so much to see through your eyes.
 
  • 1. lit. "they last for a glance too many". "last for a glance" is like "last for a moment". The same pun would work in French, but alas not in English

I'm not quite sure I got 100% of it. A native second opinion would be welcome.
