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
Sad eyes never lie
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 walkin' this way
Sad eyes never lie
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 your hair
Like you're so sure I'll be standing here

    General Commentonce u understand it it is prolly one of the best songs ever written, but i think u have to experience certain things and be in a certain position to understand it. its about him who loved this shy girl thats prolly rly sweet but has a lot of issues with herself, but shes too shy and secretevly to talk about it so she pretends everythings fine. she kinda lives her own life and its clear that he loved her, he had problems too, prolly relating her (he couldnt have her?!) and might not have told her that
    Baby don't you know I don't care
    Don't you know that I've been there
    he doesnt care anymore, hes over it, he loved her once but: "I know you think you'd never be mine
    Well that's okay, baby, I don't mind" she never loved him and still doesnt, theyre prolly just good friends, she has other things on her mind than him, but he was in love with her. its so normal for her having him as a friend "Here you come all dressed up for a date
    Well one more step and it'll be too late
    Blue blue ribbon in your hair
    Like you're so sure I'll be standing here" .. its about missunderstanding, he loves her and she expects him to be just a friend which hurts the one that feels more...sad eyes, just in each case a different reason, he cuz of her, she cuz of other things in her life
