Chalk It Up (lyric)

I won't say that you are unlike
Anyone I ever met
Anyone who says that is a fool
In fact, you look familiar,
Though I'm sure we've never met
At least we never have been introduced.

I've seen you around, I think
I might have even heard your name
Or maybe I just noticed it in the phone book's pages
It wouldn't be a tragedy,
But it would be a shame
If we passed each other by like perfect strangers.

I know,
You're probably running late
And I know
I'm about to miss my train
But I hope
You find a reason
To change your plans & chalk it up to fate.

Oh, weren't we once on the same flight?
The one that got delayed by an extra hour
Didn't I once let you bum a light?
Or borrow your cell phone when mine ran out of power

Didn't we once work on different floors?
For the same company in that big skyscraper
Didn't you once yell "Hold the door"
And ride up with me in a silent elevator?

I know,
You've probably got a date
And I know
Mine is waiting for me
But I hope
You find a reason
To change your plans & chalk it up to fate

Yes, I've seen you around, and
I know that you've seen me too
'Cause I recognize that slow, slow smile

And I'll get where I am going
With or without you
But it would sure be nice to walk together for a while . . .

I know
You're probably running late
I know
I'm about to miss my train
But I hope
You find a reason
To change your plans & chalk it up to fate.
