I May Never Have Met You

I may never have met you, If chance didn’t let you Encounter my sight with the moonlight in your hair. I may never have loved you If chance hadn’t shoved you Straight into my path with Cupid standing there. Encountered by chance, I felt my heart dance, I heard my future story being told in another voice. Much to my surprise, Chance looked me in the eyes; And I knew then to be with you I simply had no other choice. I may never have met you, If chance didn’t let you, Turn your head my way, in the theater lobby; I may never have loved you, If chance hadn’t shoved you, Into my heart with your smile of pure beauty. Encountered by chance, I had to do more than simply glance, I had to let my shyness alone at the theater door; To take advantage of this fate, I couldn’t dare to hesitate, Before I spoke to you, about wanting to know you much more. I may never have met you, I may never have loved you, If I let this chance encounter pass both of us by; If I never had met you, If I never had loved you, Of this missed chance encounter each night I would simply cry.
