Looks like It's over, you knew I couldn't stay
She's comin' home today
We had a good thing, I'll miss your sweet love
Why must you look at me that way?
It's over

Sad eyes, turn the other way
I don't want to see you cry
Sad eyes, you knew there'd come a day
When we would have to say "goodbye"

Try to remember the magic that we shared
In time your broken heart will mend
I never used you, you knew I really cared
I hate to see it have to end
But it's over

Sad eyes, turn the other way
I don't want to see you cry
Sad eyes, you knew there'd come a day
When we would have to say "goodbye"

Sad eyes, turn the other way
I don't want to see you cry
Sad eyes, you knew there'd come a day
When we would have to say "goodbye"

Sad eyes, turn the other way (turn the other way)
I don't want to see you cry (cry, cry, cry)
Sad eyes (say) you knew there'd come a day (hey, hey)
When we would have to say "goodbye"

Sad eyes, turn the other way

    General CommentIt's about a man who had an affair with another woman, but now it has to end it because his lady (wife or girl
    friend)is back. He wants his lover to know that it was not just a meaningless affair, that it meant something.
    He wants her to remember the good times they had. It's now time to say good-bye.

    General CommentI literally cannot believe anyone would make excuses for this song. What is it about? It is about a man with literally no conscience, who was perfectly willing to ruin the lives of two women, making excuses for his behavior, and for why his mistress should be willing to go away quietly and remember him fondly, despite his despicable behavior. Truthfullly, it should be "black eyes" for what the mistress and the wife leave him with as they walk out the door. A man who behaves like this deserves to be pilloried, or worse.
