Something About Your Eyes

After that smile, what’s left for me
That’s all it took, it’s all I can think of
It’s not right, you take it home with you
Now you’re gone, so is what you gave to me

It’s on my mind, I’m not losing it this time
No matter how far away, it’s a photograph now
I wonder where to put it, not any old drawer
I’d just lose it, it’s gotta’ be where I can find

It’s something about your eyes
Like a picture on the wall
A sunset on the bay
It’s enough for me to say
It’s something about your eyes

I hope it’s not your last goodbye, we just met
You didn’t have to say anything, I know you now
The time between a look, it’s goes a long way fast
It’s not crossing bridges, that’s too hard to forget

I have to not care, I have to be who I am
I can’t pretend either, I do care about her
I was confident for a moment, then she was
I just have to be myself, I hope that I can

I can't just do whatever I want
I'm not going to say whatever to you
You mean more than whatever I want

It’s something about your eyes
Like a picture on the wall
A sunset on the bay
It’s enough for me to say
It’s something about your eyes

Unfortunately we have to learn the hard way...

You get a + 1 from me on that.

Yes, it's as if we are in a trance in the beginning. They should outlaw marriage in the first two years of dating or whatever period of time it takes to come to our senses. Ha...

Mark, Eyes and that first attracting look are so often deceiving, you are allowing your emotions to guid you rather than allowing your intuition to reveal who she is. That led to many blunders until I married my two wives that together only amounted to about 11 years of marriage but it took them together to fulfill my golfer my wife that turned out to be wives, born on or near my birthday and we got married the day of or between.

Looking back at them during my nomad years I've found they were destiny and it required the blunders to obtain the understanding Into have. So, I suggest maybe you should stop allowing emotions to govern what you see and let your intuition guide you, I'm very pleased that I did.

Peace.
