tom heany – your blue eyes lyrics

Loading...

billy didn’t know a lot of girls
and the truth is, he didn’t care
he didn’t need a lot, he didn’t need a few
he knew there was one for him, and she was out there
he knew, and she knew, and he knew that she knew
that the world would bring them face to face
and it would all make sense, starting on that day
and as he walked down the street
we’d listen, and we’d hear him say:

“your blue eyes, right around my corner
your sweet smile’s gonna light my way
it may not be today or tomorrow
but i know you’ll be here one fine day.”

becky came along one day
and we all heard church bells ring
they talked about kids, but the doctor said
“the odds against you are just overwhelming.” but
he knew, and she knew, and he knew that she knew
that they beat the odds the day they met
and it all made sense, starting on the day
when he showed us the sonogram
and everyone could hear him say:

“your blue eyes, right around my corner
your sweet smile’s gonna light my way
it may not be today or tomorrow
but i know you’ll be here one fine day.”

twenty four years
sounds like a lot
but it goes by fast
and in the end, it’s not
becky got sick and they couldn’t fix it
the doctors did what they could do
she closed her eyes on christmas eve
and it broke that man in two

now the baby’s all grown up
and she watches her old man
he sits outdoors and smiles
she brings him coffee and she holds his hand
he knows… she’ll never understand
but he tries to tell her anyway
he says, “this won’t make sense
but i hear her every day
clear as a church bell
and this is what i hear her say:

“your blue eyes, right around my corner
your sweet smile’s gonna light my way
it may not be today or tomorrow
but i know you’ll be here one fine day.”
