lyrics

I saw you once, on the television screen
And i knew right away it was fate
I turned up the volume, to hear what you said
But i reached the remote far too late

I thought about you, on the bus in to work
And then again on my way home
I turned on the TV, with hope in my heart
But sadly, you'd left me alone

Never did i know you
Never did i meet you
I never found out your name
Never did i know you
Never did i meet you
But you captured my heart just the same

I looked up the show, in the Radio Times
But it didn't tell me your name
The days went by, no matter how i tried
I couldn't extinguish the flame

I never would think, that it could be like this
If it had happened to anyone else
But i wish i had taped you, 'cos when i think back
To that day, well my heart simply melts

Never did i know you
Never did i meet you
I never found out your name
Never did i know you
Never did i meet you
But you captured my heart just the same
