"my eyes adored you." as written by Kenny Nolan and Robert Crewe....
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 ev'ry day over Bonnicut 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.

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

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 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.

    General CommentThis is my song from 7th grade...dedicated to me by my 2-yr boyfriend who dumped me for a relationship with Carol, the prettiest girl in the school. (It lasted just a few weeks:). We've reconnected through Facebook and now can laugh at it, although he claims to not even recall her name (bright man:). It's funny how music can remain with us...take us back to a time of long ago when life was so much less complicated. I still see him as a boy, even though his photos show that he's aged (although he looks very young for his age...lucky him). This song was about love lost, but respect remaining. We were quite the pair...hanging out after school each day as we walked around town; going to the weekly dances and the twice weekly sporting events; walking and eating together during school. Ahhhhh....this song is indeed special. And I am so thankful he gave me this gift when he said goodbye all those decades ago. Music (all music) is a blessing...
