Just My Imagination

After Just My Imagination by The Temptations

 

Each day through my soul’s window

I watch the world as it passes by.

I say to myself, “I’m never gonna die.”

To have the world I want

Would be a dream come true.

Out of all of the ones in the world

I could choose you or you or 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 it will all be just the way I see.

At the beach, in the mountains, on the planes, just me

Realizing my fantasies.

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

Running away with me.

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 my loves from me

Or I will surely die.”

Ooh, my love is heavenly;

When it charms and enfolds me,

I hear a tender rhapsody.

But in reality, this Maya doesn’t even know me.

 

Just my imagination — once again —

Running away with me.

I tell you it was just my imagination

Running away with me.

I’ve never met her, but I can’t forget her.

Just my imagination

— Maya, yeah, yeah —

Running away with me.
