"Balcony/Green Eyes" as written by and Joe Purdy....
Will you stay with me
In the balcony
And we'll slink in our seats
As the people all leave
We can hide out as the curtain comes down
And fall asleep to sleeping sounds
When the morning is growing near
I'll see if the coast is clear

Green eyes are better than blue
I ain't trying to be mean I'm just telling the truth
It's enough to make me run away with you
Darling green eyes are better than blue

She says this isn't easy you know
Loving the hands that you ain't s'pose to hold
And I'll pray for the days that I won't sleep alone
She says this isn't easy you know

Green eyes are better than blue
I ain't trying to be mean, just telling the truth
It's enough to make me run away with you
Darling green eyes are better than blue

Johnny says don't bring her down
When the pedestal crumbles and falls to the ground
You will wish that you left her the way that you found her
Johnny says don't bring her down

Green eyes are better than blue
I ain't trying to be mean, just telling the truth
It's enough to make me run away with you
Darling green eyes are better than blue

Well I saw you in the water last night
You were smiling at me as you slipped out of sight
When I woke from my dream I was screaming for life
'Cause I saw you in the water last night

Green eyes are better than blue
I ain't trying to be mean, just telling the truth
It's enough to make me run away with you
Darling green eyes are better than blue
I said green eyes are better than blue
I said green eyes are better than blue
I said green eyes are better than blue

    General Commentthe song sounds like forbidden love or love that just can't be right now. i'm not sure if its just because the circumstances are that they really aren't "supposed" to be together (It's enough to make me run away with you, darling) or that he's already with someone, the gal has greens while the woman he is still with has blue and green eyes wants him, however, because of his situation with the other woman, its not possible right now. (She says this isn't easy I know, loving the hands that you ain't supposed to hold and I'll pray for the days that I wont sleep alone).

    i think i'm going more for the latter because he obviously has feelings for green eyes.
