If We Try

This song is by Don McLean and appears on the album Don McLean (1972) and on the album American Pie: The Greatest Hits (2000).

When I see you on the street
I lose my concentration
Just the thought that we might meet
Creates anticipation

Won't you look my way once before you go
And my eyes will say what you ought to know
Well I been thinkin' about you day and night
And I don't know if It'll work out right
But somehow I think that it just might
If we try

Faces come and faces go
In circular rotation
But something yearns within to grow
Beyond infatuation

Won't you look my way once before you go
And my eyes will say what you ought to know
Well you got me standin' deaf and blind
'Cause I see love as just a state of mind
And who knows what it is that we might find
If we try

You're walkin' a different direction from
Most people I've met
You're givin' me signs of affection I
Don't usually get
I don't want you to pledge your future
The future's not yours to give
Just stand there a little longer
And let me watch while you live

'Cause when I see you on the street
I lose my concentration
And just the thought that we might meet
Creates anticipation

Won't you look my way once before you go
And my eyes will say what you ought to know
Well I've been thinkin' about you day and night
And I don't know if It'll work out right
But somehow I think that it just might
If we try

Somehow I think that it just might
If we try

Yes, somehow I think that it just might
If we try

Written by:

Don McLean

TriviaEdit

Don would often change the last chorus when he performed the song live. The words were something like "Won't you look my way once before you go and my eyes will say what you ought to know. It'd be so nice to see it all work out...cause that's what fantasies are all about..."
