"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
Whoa baby
Oh the feeling, sad regrets I know I won't ever forget you
My childhood friend

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...

    MemoryThis is such a sentimental and emotional song for me. Almost every word of it accurately describes my feelings towards a girl from my high school, the most beautiful girl in the entire school. During our time together we became best friends, with me falling totally in love with her. I was sure that she felt the same about me, but could not be certain, and so I just couldn't pluck up the courage to tell her how I felt about her. Eventually we left school, and a short time later we went our separate ways, never to see each other ever again. Many years have passed since those times, and I have had quite a happy and successful life, but every so often the memories of my school days, and my lovely friend, come back to me. I just wish that I could turn the clock back to those days, when I had so many opportunities to reveal my true feelings to this girl. I wouldn't waste this second chance, and hopefully I would have my feelings reciprocated. Wherever this girl is now, and whatever she is doing, I truly hope that she has had the most wonderful life possible, and that just occasionally she remembers our time together as fondly as I do.
