Her Pretty Eyes

I can see the love in your pretty eyes, 
And my heart can hear your cries,
But baby I love you, so dry your pretty eyes.

Let’s forget all about our goodbyes,
Let’s give our love another try,
It doesn’t matter anymore whether it’s wrong or right,
Baby I love your pretty eyes.

They may think we are crazy,
Or call us insane,
But baby without you, 
I’m not the same.

Who says your first love can’t be your last?
I want to be your shadow,
And never leave your side,
Baby I am drowning in the deep love of your pretty eyes.
