I look into your eyes, and you stare back
I only notice the one thing you lack
You have the eyes of someone weary
All of the time they are teary
But why are you sad, and why won’t you tell me?
I can tell when I look deeply
Into those eyes that you hide away
There’s something that you want to say
The rest of your face is exactly the same
It seems to sit there, innocent and tame
Except that smile, that lonely smile
You are sad but it’s there all the while
Never fails to hide the emotion
It’s like you have some magic potion
Because your smile tells me that you are fine
But I can see the vital sign
Your eyes are weary…oh so weary.
