"Angel Eyes" as written by Ricardo Coward, Franchotto Maxwell, Sly Dunbar, Lloyd Willis and Raghav Mathur....
Girl, you're looking fine tonight,
And every guy has got you in his sights
What you're doing with a clown like me,
Is surely one of life's little mysteries

So tonight I'll ask the stars above
"How did I ever win your love?"
What did I do?
What did I say,
To turn your angel eyes my way?

Well, I'm the guy who never learned to dance,
Never even got one second glance
Across a crowded room was close enough,
I could look but I could never touch.

So tonight I'll ask the stars above
"How did I ever win your love?"
What did I do?
What did I say,
To turn your angel eyes my way?

Don't anyone wake me,
If it's just a dream
Oh she's the best thing,
That's ever happened to me

All you fellows, you can look all you like,
But this girl, you see, she's leavin' here
With me tonight

There's just one more thing I have to know,
If this is love why does it scare me so?
It must be something only you can see,
'Cause girl I feel it when you look at me

So tonight I'll ask the stars above
"How did I ever win your love?"
What did I do?
What did I say,
To turn your angel eyes my way?

    General CommentThis song reminds me of the last dance at elementary school. LOL That was a very long time but still... this song just captured that moment when the girls would be dancing with me and crying. And they would stare up at me and just give me these looks of "You could've had me." But I was young and foolish. Great slow dance song.

    General CommentThe song is about a guy who never thought that he would have this woman love him, because he felt so ordinary compared to all the other men in the room. Yet, there she is in his arms dancing and he wonders what it was about him that made her turn her eyes to him.

    This song is an awesome love song for all the nice guys who say they finish last.
