"Goodbye In Her Eyes" as written by and Zachry Brown....
I could tell that it was over
When her lips met mine
It was an emptiness in her voice
Hesitation when she smiled
She didn't have to say a word
It was just so plain to see
She had found what she'd been looking for
And I knew it wasn't me

I saw goodbye in her eyes
I don't think I can change it
There's no way to disguise
We will never make it

Sometimes I feel like a clown
Who can't wash off his make-up
All she wanted it was gone
Prince Charming I wasn't
But I would trade a thousand Babylons
To be in her arms tomorrow
But like tide her love has come and gone
And it's time for me to go

I saw goodbye in her eyes
I don't think I can change it
There's no way to disguise
We will never make it

Now she sees right through me
Should I hold on to what we've got
Is it just a waste of time
One thing that I know for sure
I saw goodbye in her eyes
I saw goodbye in her eyes

I know you got somebody new now
All my candles have burned out
He's gonna love the way you shine
So did I
So don't smile at me if it ain't what you need
With that goodbye in your eyes
I know that I can't change it
(Now you see right through me)
There's no way to disguise
We will never make it

I saw goodbye in your eyes
I know that I can't change it
(Now you see right through me, goodbye in your eyes)
Should I hold on
We will never make it
(Now you see right through me, goodbye in your eyes)
Should I hold on
Is it just a waste of time
One thing that I know for sure
I saw goodbye in your eyes
I saw goodbye in your eyes
I know that it's over

    My Interpretation man who knows the love of his life is leaving him and he cannot do anything about it. "Sometimes I feel like a clown that can't wash off his makeup," he croons sadly.

    My InterpretationI'm not a bible scholar, nor a Christian, so I'm not really familiar with the story of Babylon, besides knowing that God smote it down. What does it mean to "trade a thousand Babylons"?
