Can't Help But Hope
Lyrics by David Cameron Anderson, Davecamson Music ASCAP
Music by David Cameron Anderson & Ricklen Nobis

You caught me watching you today
You wore the face of wonder why
How come I look at you that way
How come you always catch my eye

Can't help but hope I'm on your mind
Can't help but think I am your best bet
Can't help but pray that fate is kind
Can't help but know you will love me yet

What if the next time our eyes meet
You stop and offer me a grin
You say, "Let's get something to eat!"
You take the time to let me in

Somedays I like to count your faults
I manage quite a lengthy list
But they escape my mem'ry's vaults
Then I'm a mill without the grist

Can't help but hope I'm on your mind
Can't help but think I am your best bet
Can't help but pray that fate is kind
Can't help but know you will love me yet
And, even though you pay absolutely no attention to me
You are someone I can't forget.
