Every day here you come walking
I hold my tongue,
I don't' do much talking
You say you're happy and you're doin' fine
Well go ahead, baby, I got plenty of time
Because sad eyes never lie
Because sad eyes never lie
Well for a while I've been watching you steady
Ain't gonna move 'til you're good and ready
You show up and then you shy away
But I know pretty soon you'll be walking this way
Because sad eyes never lie
Because sad eyes never lie

Baby don't you know I don't care
Don't you know that I've been there
Well if something in the air feels a little unkind
Don't worry darling, it'll slip your mind
I know you think you'd never be mine
Well that's okay, baby, I don't mind
That shy smile's sweet, that's a fact
Go ahead, I don't mind the act
Here you come all dressed up for a date
Well one more step and it'll be too late
Blue blue ribbon in you hair
Like you're so sure I'll be standin' there

I guess sad eyes never lie
I guess sad eyes never lie
I guess sad eyes never lie
I guess sad eyes never lie
Never lie, never lie
Never lie
Never lie
Sad eyes, sad eyes, sad eyes
Sad eyes never lie
Sad eyes, sad eyes never lie
Never lie, never, never
Sad eyes never lie
Sad eyes never lie
Sad eyes never lie

    General CommentI was kinda in this situation already...I point of veiw on this song is,the guy and the girl were in a relationship and then they broke it off for whatever reason.She's acting with all pride that shes over him and he could see rite thru her...sad eyes..totally gives her away!!She pertends that shes moved on,saying shes fine and goinf out on dates but she is hiding her true feelings.the guy here is saying,indirectly,hes fed up wit the back and forth and all the games...and hes maybe not going tobe standing here always.He watchs her movments,and even thou she pretends she is moved on..she isn't going to move till shes good and ready....gr8 song!!

    General CommentI don't think song is about breaking up - most probably it is about loving someone who pretends that doesn't have any interest in you, but anyway you know or at least hope that she is in love with you. Especially I like lines saying
    "I know you think you`d never be mine
    Well that`s okay, baby, I don`t mind"
    Meaning guy has greater patience than girl and he can wait until he gets her:)

    General CommentDaoyugioh (what does that mean?) and Juliette - You're right. This is a Bruce Springsteen song. It was released on his 1998 box set "Tracks", which contained 'tracks' which previously didn't make it to his albums.

    And Enrique is a huge fan of Springsteen. Check the articles on wiki...


    I'm not a fan of pop and r'n'b. But this song is good. One of the lesser songs where he sings decently.
