Sad Eyes by Bruce Springsteen

This gorgeous song is about a man who has been slowly biding his time as the woman he has his eyes on works up the courage to leave an unhappy relationship and embark on a new one with him. Maybe it's the voice, maybe it's the words, but every time I hear this song, I feel as if my heart will melt away from the swooning romanticism of it all.

Sad Eyes
Performed by: Bruce Springsteen
Words by: Bruce Springsteen

Ev'ry 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
Because sad eyes never lie
Because 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
Because sad eyes never lie
'Cause 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

I guess sad eyes never lie
I guess sad eyes never lie
I guess sad eyes never lie
Sad eyes never lie
