One of Us Must Know (Sooner or Later) Lyrics

"One Of Us Must Know (Sooner Or Later)"

I didn't mean to treat you so bad
You shouldn't take it so personal
I didn't mean to make you so sad
You just happened to be there, that's all
When I saw you say goodbye to your friends and smile

    It was hard to follow when it began to snow.
    But up until then I saw an under aged teen flirting. Bob is realizing it and also gets it that the other person knows this isn't going to work out.
    At least one of them must know and needs to be clear to the other, there is something between them but it can't be kept going.

    I'm not real comfortable with the interpretation, but since there were no others-----------
