It’s been so long
Since I thought I had a chance
I’d gotten used
To your being just a friend
I can’t believe
It’s anything more than a dream
I can’t believe
That I’m here now holding you

I always thought
There was something between us
Haven’t you heard
I’ve been sayin’ all along
But I believed
It was just going nowhere
I didn’t know that a man
Like me could be so wrong

One November night
The whole world seemed so right
And maybe, if you’ll forget yesterday
Then you’d let me stay

I didn’t mean
To come here and confuse you
I didn’t know
I was so in love with you
How could I know?
After years past without you
How could I know
You were just too close to see

One November night
The whole world seemed so right
And maybe, if you forget yesterday
Then you’d let me stay

Every night, I’ve just wanted to hold you
Wanting to show you the love
I’ve been holding inside

One November night
The whole world seemed so right
And maybe, if you forget yesterday
Then you’d let me stay

Take my hand, girl, I can show you the way
Please, please let me stay
