Just My Imagination (Running Away with Me) - The Temptations

Each day through my window
I watch her as she passes by…
I say to myself, “You’re such a lucky guy”
To have a girl like her
Is truly a dream come true
Out of all of the fellas in the world
She belongs to you…

But it was just my imagination
Running away with me.
It was just my imagination
Running away with me…

Ooh-hoo-hoo-hooh
Soon we’ll be married and raise a family
In a cozy, little home out in the country
With two children, maybe three
I tell you, I can visualize it all
This couldn’t be a dream for too real it all seems

But it was just my imagination, once again
Running away with me
I tell you it was just my imagination
running away with me…

Every night, on my knees I pray
“Dear Lord, hear my plea…
Don’t ever let another take her love from me
Or I will surely die..”
Ooh, her love is heavenly
When her arms enfold me
I hear a tender rhapsody
But in reality, she doesn’t even know me

Just my imagination, once again
running away with me
Tell you it was just my imagination
running away with me
I never met her, but I can’t forget her
Just my imagination
Ooh yeah, yeah, yeah, yeah
Running away with me
