Only Your Eyes Were Blue

I can recall 
When we had it all
There was nothing we couldn't do
We were the best
Ahead of the rest
And only your eyes were blue
You stood by my side
Beaming with pride
Each morning we'd start anew
Searching our souls
Achieving our goals
And only your eyes were blue
We walked with a force 
We set our own course
Our courage, our passions were true
We answered the call
We conquered it all
And only your eyes were blue
Since you've been gone
I still carry on
Your memory sees me through
If there was a way
I'd go back there today
When only your eyes were blue.
