My Eyes Adored You

Tuesday, March 12, 2013

Frankie Valli (of the Four Seasons) , 1974-Words and Music by Bob Crewe and Kenny Nolan

My eyes adored you
Though I never laid a hand on you
My eyes adored you
Like a million miles away from me you couldn't see how I adored you
So close, so close and yet so far


Carried your books from school
Playin' "make-believe you're married to me"
You were fifth-grade, I was sixth
When we came to be


Walkin' home every day over Barnegat Bridge and Bay
Till we grew into the me and you
Who went our separate ways


My eyes adored you
Though I never laid a hand on you
My eyes adored you
Like a million miles away from me you couldn't see how I adored you
So close, so close and yet so far


Headed for city lights
Climbed the ladder up to fortune and fame
I worked my fingers to the bone
Made myself a name


Funny I seemed to find
That no matter how the years unwind
Still I reminisce 'bout the girl I miss
And the love I left behind


My eyes adored you
Though I never laid a hand on you
My eyes adored you
Like a million miles away from me you couldn't see how I adored you
So close, so close and yet so far


(My eyes adored you)
All my life I will remember
(Though I never laid a hand on you)
How warm and tender we were way back then, whoa, whoa, baby
(Like a million miles away from me you couldn't see how I adored you) Oh, the feeling, sad regrets
(So close, so close and yet so far)
I know I won't ever forget you, my childhood friend


(My eyes adored you)
(Though I never laid a hand on you)
(My eyes adored you)
(Like a million miles away from me you couldn't see how I adored you)


FADE
So close, so close and yet so far
