My Eyes Adored You

My eyes adored you though I never laid a hand on you

My eyes adored you like a million miles away from me

You couldn't see how I adored you

So close, so close and yet so far

Carried your books from school 

Playin' make believe you're married to me 

You were fifth-grade, I was sixth when we came to be

Walkin' home ev'ry day over Bonnicut Bridge and Bay 

Till we grew into the me and you who went our separate ways

 

My eyes adored you though I never laid a hand on you

My eyes adored you like a million miles away from me

You couldn't see how I adored you

So close, so close and yet so far

Headed for city lights, climbed the ladder up to fortune and fame

I worked my fingers to the bone made myself a name

Funny I seemed to find that no matter how the years unwind

Still I reminisce 'bout the girl I miss and the love I left behind

 

My eyes adored you though I never laid a hand on you

My eyes adored you like a million miles away from me

You couldn't see how I adored you

So close, so close and yet so far

 

All my life I will remember how warm and tender we were way back then 

(My eyes adored you though I never laid a hand on you)

Whoa baby, 

(My eyes adored you like a million miles away from me

You couldn't see how I adored you)

Oh the feeling, sad regrets I know I won't ever forget you 

My childhood friend

(So close, so close and yet so far)

 

My eyes adored you though I never laid a hand on you

My eyes adored you like a million miles away from me

You couldn't see how I adored you

So close, so close and yet so far

My eyes adored you though I never laid a hand on you

My eyes adored you like a million miles away from me

You couldn't see how I adored you

So close, so close and yet so far
