"Sad Eyes" as written by Billy Steinberg, Tom Kelly and Vittore Palminteri....
Southern style
Things are slow
You're watching all the speeding cars
Moving like you wish you could
But oh, it's too bad
Cause they've drove away your happiness and good times

But I'm gonna get you into the light
And I'm gonna find a way that is right
And I'm gonna get you into the light
And make it okay

Sad eyes
You are the only one whose
Whose blue skies are gray
So don't cry
You'll be the only one to make them go away

You're so young
And so bored
You were staying out 'til late
Cause it was what your husband hated
But oh, it's too bad
Cause he's stolen all your happiness and good times

But I'm gonna get you into the light
And I'm gonna find a way that is right
And I'm gonna get you into the light
And make it okay

Sad eyes
You are the only one whose
Whose blue skies are gray
So don't cry
You'll be the only one to make them go away
Yeah you could make them go away

Took a lot of tears but all you had to find was
Sympathetic years, the ones you left behind yeah
Took a lot of tears but all you had to find was
Sympathetic years, the ones you left behind yeah

I'm gonna get you into the light
And I'm gonna find a way that is right
And I'm gonna get you into the light
And make it okay

Sad eyes
You are the only one whose
Whose blue skies are gray
So don't cry
You'll be the only one to make them go away yeah

Sad eyes (Took a lot of tears but all)
You are the only one whose (You had to find was)
Whose blue skies are gray (Sympathetic years, the ones you left behind)
So don't cry
You'll be the only one to make them go away
Things are gonna go your way
Yeah they're gonna go your way
Oh they're bound to go your way

    General Commentlove how it builds up to the end, great song. to me it's about helping yourself, and getting out of self pity.

    Song MeaningAnyone have any idea what he means by "sympathetic years"? I would initially say he's simply saying to remember the meaningful relationships from one's past, but it seems deeper than that.
