I thought I knew you
But I guess I was wrong
You only see the things
You've convinced yourself you saw
But like you said, I guess, yeah
Maybe I'm blind
Well, why don't you open your eyes
You might like what you find

'Cause I've been waiting
For such a long time
Your love is still
Fresh in my mind
And oh my love
Though I wait
Can't you see
I can't wait forever for you
To say you love me

I thought I knew you
But I guess I was wrong
You only see the things
You've convinced yourself you saw
But like you said, I guess, yeah
Maybe I'm blind
Well, why don't you open your eyes
You might like what you find

'Cause I've been waiting
For such a long time
Your love is still
Fresh in my mind
And oh my love
Though I wait
Can't you see
I can't wait forever for you
To say you love me

And oh my love
Though I wait
Can't you see
I can't wait forever for you
To say you love me

I've been waiting
For such a long time
Your love is still
Fresh in my mind
And oh my love
Though I wait
Can't you see
I can't wait forever for you
To say you love me

And oh my love
Though I wait
Can't you see
I can't wait forever for you
To say you love me

And oh my love
Though I wait
Can't you see
I can't wait forever for you
To say you love me

    My InterpretationIt was written intended to be a dialogue, and during live versions sometimes Robin performs it as a duet. But it's clearly a dialogue between a person locked up in his own world and not willing to open up, only seeing the things he wishes to see, and another person encouraging him to open up for new experiences. "Why don't you open your eyes, you might like what you find" would be the response to "Like you said, I guess that maybe I'm blind".

    General CommentIt's so repetitive.... Like many songs of sophia, sadly.
    A bit of potential wasted...
