"At a glance" in lyrics

As soon as she got off at the station
in the little village of Sant’Ilario
everybody knew at a glance
that she wasn’t a missionary.

Fabrizio De André - Rose Mouth

She was unknown, curious and friendly

at a glance, offered a little mermaid in the eyes of the night,

Her key made the dream come true, a secret they now share,

Zaz - Flying heart

They found out
And turned on the light
At a glance, blushing,
By the time of the "Oh"
It's too late

DAOKO - Cast for You

***

Take in the scene at a glance and see what's happening later.

Turn onto my street right now!

Tarkan - Say Hop

She was fearless[fn value="1"]"Gözü kara (olmak)" is an idiom.
It can be translated as "her eyes were black" literally.
But the real meaning is "she was fearless".[/fn], her eyes were as black as coal.
They were gun; they used to shoot, and punch at a glance.
Time used to stop when she were walking.
About time and space, who cares about the world?

Murat Boz - Gentle

If...
A moment can change everyting
at a glance with a kiss...
If just one word from your lips is enough
to be dressed up in light...

Dimitra Galani - If

Savoy, let me stomp away with you;

The home of sweet romance,
It wins you at a glance,
Gives happy feet a chance to dance.
Just like a clinging vine,

Ella Fitzgerald - Stompin' at the Savoy

I still hear you saying
All of life is a chance
And is sweetest
When at a glance
But I live a hundred
Lifetimes in one day

Ben Harper - Amen Omen

Over time,
Over time, goes everything away
The one we used to love, we looked for in the rain
The one we found at a glance
We understood the words, could read between the lines, could find despite the blush
Of a disguised promise that is going to disappear into the night

Léo Ferré - Avec le Temps

Oh the warm wind in the air
Making this midnight affair
Just another dance
A stupid boy at a glance

Oh was that you on the beach ?

Nona - Ghost outside of my hands

Till you're back I stay awake

And maureen
With the boys you could tell at a glance
You'd say he looks good
Let'd hope he can dance

Sade - Maureen

To see you and to repeat again: My love! My love!

Among the thousands of different fates
I'll divine yours at a glance.
You'll be all right.
I'm not an angel, I'm just close to you.

Ruslan Alekhno - My Love

but not for long -
better watch your step or you're gonna die!

You're so together boy but just at a glance
You'll do anything if given a chance
Scheming, plannin' lies to get what you need

Janet Jackson - Black cat

[Chorus:]
From across the room
I can feel your eyes on me
Just glance at me one more time
And I'll show you how it'll be

Body Language - At A Glance

You fly up in the clouds
You feel like a god mmmm, a unique one (a unique one)
You hold the world in your arms
And suddenly mmmm, at a glance
The heart beats like crazy

Cinderella (OST) - If you love

Such a night, such a night
To steal away, the time is right

Your eyes caught mine and at a glance
You let me know that this was my chance
But you came here with my best friend, Jim

Paolo Nutini - Such a Night - Dr.John (Cover)

And twinkle on the Milky Way,
They stretched in never-ending line
Along the margin of a bay:
Ten thousand saw I at a glance,
Tossing their heads in sprightly dance.

William Wordsworth - I Wandered Lonely as a Cloud

Power and glory
in the murky water at a glance
The adventure and passion
around Chateauvallon

Herbert Léonard - Power and Glory

I did not have strength
To fall in love ...

You burned at a glance
You melt many repentances ...
You wiped out with a smile

Sertab Erener - who am I saying..

Bitter and lonely, those they've left before
The vibrant heart so quickly growing old,
The warmest eyes so quickly growing cold
Just a glance for they don't care to see what becomes of me

AFI - At A Glance

Everything will come right
if you only believe The Gypsy.
She could tell at a glance
that my heart was so full of tears.

He knew him at a glance
This stranger he has found
This man could be my chance

We all lose

What those in power do to you
Reminds us at a glance
How humans hate each others guts
And show it given a chance

Morrissey - Mountjoy

I never mind previously, the lower the peace you and my heart
Since then, only aroud I see you
Overview of my words and my eyes I see you there
It's like saying I'm relieved, I was with her at a glance

Had a sleepless eyes looked at me,and say I woke up with sparkle

Mais Hamdan - Night

You could not fix your wretched trick –
To meet other behind me.
Even if you run you're at a glance.

You better run, run, run, run, run,

Girls' Generation - Run devil, run

Her soul, I realized, was of the sort
That comprehends the whole world at a glance;
Within such souls is substance to support
Much good or evil, torment or romance;

Mikhail Lermontov - A Fairytale for Children, Verse 21 (Rhyming)

Though the dancers were fluther'd and bet
With his smart witty talk, he was cock of the walk
And he rolled the dames under and over
They all knew at a glance when he took up his stance
That he sailed in The Irish Rover

The Dubliners - The Irish Rover

Sweet-talk, so much blah blah blah
Don't come explaining
Why should I know?
Scalded cats know at a glance
If the weather is changing
If it will rain

Patricia Marx - Take Care of Yourself, Dear

Keeping the beard a little longer is becoming a current topic of debate again
You ask me how I'm doing
A quiz show typical backup question would be a better choice
And you, that understand me at a glance,
Feel there's something new already...

Neffa - Ma Jolie

If love is true, don't feel upset if encounter is too late
At a glance there should be no more sigh of frustration
If love and faith fade away like water
Will entrust this heart to the flying wild gooses

Teresa Cheung - Love and Faith in Two Hearts are Tenacious

Love me so dizzy ... ehhh, ehhh ..

All I can tell you about me, you already know without you ask me.
You guessed at a glance, how you do it?
You make me see you in it when they're not.
I can cry with happiness, how you do it?

Andreea Balan - Carousel

You actually call the people only people
If those people are exactly like you
But step in the footsteps of a stranger
And then you learn so much at a glance

Do you ever hear the wolves bringing an ode to the moon

When her train pulled into Sant’Ilario
by the time she had stepped to the ground,
the welcoming crowd, at a glance, saw it wasn’t
the Church that had sent her to town.

I know at a glance
The terrible chances I'm taking</em>
Fine at the start

Michael Bublé - Nevertheless (I'm In Love With You)

Thoughts on the persistence
Like a flying moth darts into fire
Knowing it`s totally a mistake, why we`re still at a stand
Better not meet, better not miss
Therefore, I will not fall in love with you

Hey! For you who disappeared
Hey! For you who gave up
Come at a glance and in an instant
Play the part, get laid

Marie, Marie Flore was a small girl of ten
whom I met in the south end of France.
Stepping out of the crowd was the daughter
of someone with flowers for me, we were friends at a glance.
She spoke no English but sat by my side in the car
and pointed out places en route to the village of Arles.

Joan Baez - Marie Flore

Out on the floor
where the cowboys dance
Approaching slowly at a glance
Here comes the shadow of his stance
The reins are fallin'

Everywhere there are your own signs

And you have taken me a break at a glance

Nikos Vertis - We Lose

In the sounds of words, I've poured echo, again...and again...
Into your braids I've weaved the leaves from forest,
Where the ringing autumn plays.
At a glance, you maybe prettier, I bet,
More prettier, but not like that.

Mykhaylo Berezutskyi - Beloved

I'm begging you, just one more chance
If you'll listen
This is not some movie romance
Or everlasting love at a glance
Won't you listen?

Chris de Burgh - If You Really Love Her, Let Her Go

shakes loose the foams.
She nourishes sloppy fishes and
reluctant parrots.
And there lies at a glance, in her laughter,
blade of steel and blackberry pulp.

Henriqueta Lisboa - The Wild Girl

We finally got 'em millin' and they sorta quieted down
And the extra guard back to the camp did go
But one of them was missin' and we all knew at a glance
'Twas our little Texas stray poor wrangler Joe

Red Steagall - Little Joe the Wrangler

On a summer’s day, maybe, just by chance
You will meet someone, knowing at a glance
That she’s lonely too, just the same as you
First you touch, then you kiss and make love
