Sunlight Eyes

[Verse 1] I never thought brown eyes could be so beautiful
deep, golden
like and ocean of caramel when the sunlight
hits them just right
and they shine
almost as bright as you
I’ve always liked to see people smile,
when it comes to your smile, though,
I’m become addicted
to being the one to bring that grin to
your face everyday
I want you stay with me
but at times I feel conflicted
I just need you to explain
what makes you think you're special enough
to be the one
that person who has the only hold on me

[Chorus] I wanted to forget you
after you said all those hurtful words
I hoped that without you, my life
would become happier, carefree
but you linger in my thoughts always, still

staring deep into your sunlight eyes
I see everything,
everything but me
everything but what we could be
but you still linger in my broken thoughts
always, still [end chorus]

[verse 2]Some mornings I don’t want to get up
to face another day without you
or try to face myself
and the mess I have become
trying to write a song for you
only too find myself tripping over
my own lyrics
like I would my own feet walking down
any flat surface
only after all is said and done
do I realize i never wanted anyone else
but I’ve become enough for myself
let me be now
leave me to drown in everything
you ever wanted me to be
to hide behind the good memories
i shared with you
behind those beautiful sunlight eyes

[Chorus] I wanted to forget you
after you said all those hurtful words
I hoped that without you, my life
would become happier, carefree
but you linger in my thoughts always, still

staring deep into your sunlight eyes
I see everything,
everything but me
everything but what we could be
but you still linger in my broken thoughts
always, still [end chorus]

[Last verse] I use to shine like your sunlight eyes
when you smiled at me
I couldn’t help but do it
I was just me
But I lied to myself
I lied to you
I was the person you wanted
me to be
I was what I didn’t want to become
I feel like I lost everything
It sucks to lose it all
to work to have something
and a tiny second steals it all
my tears don’t change a thing
nothing I can do will bring it back
so I listen,
listen to the music that doesn't calm my soul
listen to the one thing keeping me alive
my heart . . .
it’s breaking, I'm breaking
tiny shards of what was stick to
my broken memories
I find myself lost in them
missing the shine in your sunlight golden eyes.
