Champagne Eyes?

Champagne eyes?
They were the perfect disguise
To hide the way she'd always been used
And cover the embarrassment of abuse
He was the guy every girl wanted
It was the relationship she so often flaunted
After all nothing kept away sympathetic glances
Like the pretty girl with all the best chances
Most importantly she had the best of the guys
So what if it meant living with Champagne eyes?

Champagne eyes?
They really helped to sell the lies
That she told everyone again and again
Because it also helped her to believe them
With what she was going through people still wanted to be her
Unfortunately, at the time that was all that mattered
It seems that the public is always willing to believe
When a pretty girl is willing and ready to deceive
She could practically see her name up in lights
So what if it meant living with Champagne eyes?

Champagne eyes?
They are a ploy that everybody always buys
Because they mask all of the pain
And she seemed to not even notice the rain
Let alone that her world was falling apart at the seams
To her and everyone else she was living in a dream
How could she not want that perfect life?
How could she possibly not want to be his wife?
Who cares if she'll have to pay the price
Of always living with Champagne eyes?
