Blue Eyes Gone Black

April 27, 2010
I waited for you today...

Through the pain
and through the tears I smiled so sweetly.

But you turned away,
you left me behind.
Despite all the nights we shared,
you simply thought I was blind.

And so I stood
wishing you'd come back.
These eyes cry for you,
their blue has become black.

So go ahead, walk away from me.
Don't turn back,
just leave me alone.
I'll crawl back to where I belong.

You see, baby,
I'll be alright.
Just don't come back to me.

I cried for you today...

Tears pour down
the gentle face you once kissed.

I loved you yesterday...

It seems you love breaking hearts,
so just walk away.
You see, baby,
this heart will live on without you.

I like your song alot. Though, in my opinion, I think it would have been a bit better to write "You see, baby,
I'll be alright.
Just don't come back to me tonight".

Thanks. I wrote this song 2 days after I left a girl who was putting me through too much to handle. Though I was extremely relieved to get out of that relationship, I felt blank. It was a very strange feeling, so I wrote this song to try and explain it to myself.
