That line rang an immediate bell with me Diane, since it's not every day you find the word 'nonchalant' used for a rhyme in a pop song.

But it was the Searchers, not RT:

"I close my eyes for a second and pretend it's me you want
Meanwhile I try to act so nonchalant
I see a summer's night with a magic moon
Every time that you walk in the room"
