Song title: Sad eyes

Sad eyes

Every day here you come walking
I hold my tongue, I don’t do much talking
You say you’re happy and you’re doin’ fine
Well go ahead, baby, I got plenty of time
Sad eyes never lie
Sad eyes never lie

Well for a while I’ve been watching you steady
Ain’t gonna move ‘til you’re good and ready
You show up and then you shy away
But I know pretty soon you’ll be walkin’ this way
Sad eyes never lie
Sad eyes never lie

Baby don’t you know I don’t care
Don’t you know that I’ve been there
Well if something in the air feels a little unkind
Don’t worry darling, it’ll slip your mind

I know you think you’d never be mine
Well that’s okay, baby, I don’t mind
That shy smile’s sweet, that’s a fact
Go ahead, I don’t mind the act
Here you come all dressed up for a date
Well one more step and it’ll be too late
Blue blue ribbon in your hair
Like you’re so sure I’ll be standing here
