Lyrics

Sometimes your eyes look blue to me
Although I know they’re really green
I seem to see you differently
Changing as I’m treating kindly
Or treated meanly
From moment to moment
You’re two different people
Faithful and warm when I’m in your arms
And then when you leave
You’re so untrue
But however you are
Deep down, whatever you are
Whoever you are, I love youSometimes I feel you’re mine alone
And yet I’m sure its just not so
I get this feeling on my own
After I learn if you’re staying
Or if you’re going
From moment to moment
You’re two different people
Someone I know as the girl I love
Or the girl I wish I never knew
But however you are
Deep down, whatever you are
Whoever you are, I love youSometimes your eyes look blue to me
