Those moments when you realize
That you’ve been staring all your life
At those precious blue eyes
Telling you little white lies

Those moments when you realize
That you’ve been living a lie
Always saying goodbye
Instead of saying hello.

Those moments when you realize
The memories you cherished
With those precious blue eyes
Are all on your mind

Those moments when you realize
The lie that those eyes spoke
Gave you happiness
That the lie awoke

Those moments when you realize
That those precious blue eyes
Are the only family you have
And you should hold on tight

Those moments when you realize
Those precious blue eyes, lie
But it made you happier
Even if you said goodbye

This makes the rhyme scheme for the second stanza AB... (more »)
