Look Me In The Eye

from Follow The Gleam by The Boo-Hooray Theory



4. Look Me In The Eye

You often like to laugh,
but there’s no sparkle in your eyes
I know that you might smile,
but all the while you’re telling lies.
And all the time we’re talking
I can’t help but wonder why
you never seem to look me in the eye.

And even when we kiss,
you always seem to look away,
as if there’s something that you can’t quite
bring yourself to say.
Your eyes might fill with tears,
but your cheeks are always dry.
You never seem to look me in the eye.

Look me in the eye,
please don’t try and hide.
I would like to try to share
what’s there inside.
Won’t you tell me why
you never look me in the eye?

For nights on end you toss and turn
and cry out in your sleep.
When I ask you why,
you always say that it will keep.
But later in the darkness,
you can’t suppress a silent sigh.
I wish that you would look me in the eye.

Look me in the eye, etc.

And when you say you love me
and you’d hate for us to part,
it’s always hard to tell if there’s
emotion in your heart.
And even if it means that in the end
we’ll say goodbye,
I wish that you would look me in the eye.
