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

    My InterpretationFor me this song is about the story teller who has started to date a girl who has had her heart trampled before, maybe her ex cheated on her. He sees this, and wants her to feel comfortable and wants to wait for her to come out of her shell again because he really likes her. They have a good time together, but he picks up on some microexpressions that shows her voulnerability (the sad eyes). Of course, he is not sure either (is anyone in the beginning?), hence he isn´t so sure he´ll be standing there.

    I love this song so much, and eventhough the production is a bit too polished, it really floats.
