"Light In Your Eyes" as written by Eliot Walker Sloan and Tommy Simms....
I can't remember the last time that we kissed goodbye
All our "I love you's" were just not enough to survive
Something your eyes never told me
But it's only now to plain to see
Brilliant disguise when you hold me
And I'm free

I've been thinking and here's what I come to conclude
Sometimes the distance is more than two people can use
But how should I have know girl
It was time and not space you would need
Darling tonight I could hold you and you would know
But would you believe

There's a light in you eyes that I used to see
There's a place in you heart where I used to be
Was I wrong to assume that you were waiting for me
There's a light in your eyes
Did you leave that burning for me

Cards and phone calls and photograph pictures of you
Constant reminder of all the things you get used to
Is there a chance in hell or heaven
That there's still something here to build on
Or do you just pick up the pieces after they fall
But after all

There's a light in your eyes that I used to see
And a song in the words that you spoke to me
Was I wrong to believe in your melody
There's a light in your eyes
Did you leave that light burning for me

Should I keep on waiting or does love keep on fading away
Fading away

It's been a while since I've seen you so how have you been
Did you get my letter I wrote you, but I did not send
I tried to call your old number
But the voice that I heard on the phone
I recognized but she told me the number was wrong

There's a light in my eyes but it's too bright to see
And a pain in my heart where you used to be
Guess I was wrong to assume that you were waiting here for me
There is a light in your eyes
Did you leave that light burning for me.

    General Commentthis is a song that i have listened to hundreds of times...and it still gets me everytime i hear it. that last verse, "There's a light in my eyes but it's too bright to see And a pain in my heart where you used to be Guess I was wrong to assume that you were waiting here for me There's a light in your eyes Did you leave that light burning for me" everytime i hear that verse my heart vacates my body. when i listen to it wiht the person that i love the most it makes her cry. that is how meaningful this song is. you know a song has a special meaning, when you are crying and its not crying cuz you are hurt....

    General CommentIt's about a person who is still madly in love with someone who doesn't want him, but he's hoping there's still that tiny chance left.

    General Commentthis song is so special to me...it totally represents my feelings about a relationship i was in...he played this song for me when we were coming to an end in our relationship and every time i hear it now i tear up bc it summed up both of our feelings on that specific night even though we knew the relationship was ending...its message/lyrics are so incredible, it moves me everytime i listen to it...

    General CommentIt's been a while since I've seen you so how have you been

    i love this part. it's so subtly tragic...we all have letters we never sent, words never said, yet still hoping the other person can understand how we truly feel about them. i think this part about having hope while not having courage.

    Pick up the pieces, move on and say fuck it. That's my opnion though.

    General Commentanyone who has ever been in love and not been able to stay with that person forever for whatever reason knows exactly what this song means, and it is almost painful to listen to it, but you can't deny how well written and true this song is.


    if you are talking about the milwaukee bucks, then i agree...GO BUCKS!
