"Don't Cry Ilene" as written by and Vonda Shepard....
He had his father's eyes
And his mother's point of view
There was no disguise
He couldn't see through
Sometimes the little things
They don't seem so small
But they had a good thing overall

[Chorus]

Nobody, nobody, nobody, nobody
Knew him the way you did
It's hard to say exactly why he left you
Maybe a change for good
Don't cry Ilene

There was a rainbow over here
He didn't see it from over there
Black and white are fine
But he's color blind
Watching over me
There must have been some kind of mystery
Because I wanted him too
But it was all wrong, all wrong

[Chorus]

Nobody, nobody, nobody, nobody
Knew him the way you did
It's hard to say exactly why he left you
Maybe a change for good
Don't cry Ilene

Nobody, nobody, nobody, nobody
Knew him the way you did
It's hard to say exactly why he left you
Maybe a change for good
Don't cry Ilene, no don't cry
It's hard to say exactly why he left you
Maybe a change for good
Don't cry Ilene
Oh no, Don't cry

    General CommentAfter all these years it has occurred to me that this song is two voices; Ilene, saying the verses throw her weeping, and the singer/Vonda, trying to comfort her in the chorus.
