"These Eyes" as written by and Burton Cummings Randy Bachman....
These eyes, cry every night for you
These arms, long to hold you again

The hurtings on me, yeah
I will never be free, no, my baby, no no
You gave a promise to me, yeah
And you broke it, and you broke it, oh no

These eyes watched you bring my world to an end
This heart could not accept and pretend

The hurtings on me, yeah
I will never be free, no, no, no
You took the vow with me, yeah
And you spoke it, and you spoke it, babe

These eyes, are crying
These eyes have seen a lot of loves
But they're never gonna see another one like I had with you
These eyes, are crying
These eyes have seen a lot of loves
But they're never gonna see another one like I had with you
These eyes, are crying
These eyes have seen a lot of loves
But they're never gonna see another one like I had with you

These eyes, cry every night for you
These arms, these arms long to hold you, hold you again

These eyes, are crying
These eyes have seen a lot of loves
But their never gonna see another one like I had with you
These eyes, are crying
These eyes have seen a lot of loves
But their never gonna see another one like I had with you
These eyes, are crying
These eyes have seen a lot of loves
But their never gonna see another one like I had with you
These eyes, are crying
These eyes have seen a lot of loves
But their never gonna see another one like I had with you

Baby, baby, baby, baby
Don't ya know these...

    General CommentThe Guess Who is easily one of the most underrated/overlooked bands of the Classic Rock era, in every Classic Rock album there should be 2 or 3 of their songs, These Eyes is a very stong 'love' song.
    My guess is that he just broke up and couldn't stop crying for that girl, and he wrote his feelings and made himself one of the greatest Classic Rock songs of all-time!
    Aweomse song! The Chorus is just too good!

    General CommentThe Guess Who is awesome.

    I figured they'd either gotten married and she left him, or gotten engaged and she left him. Either way, one of my favorites.

    General Commentsaw the film, Stay, which had short clips of the beginning of this song. Reminds me of how much greater a movie can make a song (in your mind).
    this one comes straight from the heart. fab.

    General CommentI agree, this is an excellent love song. I think the Tragically Hip are the best band from Canada. Best band ever in fact.

    General CommentI'm in the same position as salparadise04. I saw the movie Stay and was like, what is that song they're listening to in the car? I really like it, so I looked it up and found this great song. :)
