Brown Eyed Girl
There use to be a brown eyed girl who smiled and always laughed
There never existed one who cried and was sad
until somehow fate put her here
a face far to pretty to see all those tears
Tears of hopelessness that fall to much now
Along with a smile i try to keep from fading out
a brown eyed girl holding onto the past
holding on so hard to something no one's sure will last
a chance to take the fall, and already falling to fast
all we can do is watch and offer advice as our grasp
a true friend isnt scared to be honest
the truth hurts so bad, but it'll set you free i promise
I never realized how this brown eyed girl got treated
now i cant look away and i hate having to see it
with eyes that cry out for a loving touch
with a heart half way broken and not hanging on by much
with hands that miss the touch of a hand
and a heart so confused of its own plans
a mind that keeps wandering were am i going wrong
even when the heart tells the mind its hurt far to long
alone in this world just her and her thoughts
she cant even hide without being caught
how much pain for happiness is she willing to trade
it bothers her at night and drags by each day
happiness to be found in one hundred different places
so much being offered and so little being taken
just one whole day id like to be with her
for one whole day of leaving bad memories on the curb
just one whole day seeing a beautiful smile
just one whole day to make it worth the while
just one whole day to leave behind the past
just one day of never being last
just one walk and one talk and one star gaze
A day of just nothingness, a day of all days
but until those days come she'll be in my prayers
number one on my list, no competition anywhere
