Song Lyrics - Your Eyes Say You're Mine

Our eyes met for a moment
But you looked away
Our eyes met again
And your heart began to obey

You act distracted
Your friends ask "what's wrong?"
You say "nothing"
But your heart hears my song

Your eyes told me
I knew you were mine
Your eyes told me
They gave me the sign

I know what you're thinking
You can't give yourself away
But this time you did
And your pride you did betray

Your eyes told me
I knew you were mine
Your eyes told me
They gave me the sign

Yeah...your eyes say you're mine
Even though you looked away
Yeah... your eyes say you're mine
There's not much else to say

Every man knows
How a girl acts
Instead of letting it show
She'd rather cover her tracks

You tried so hard
To not look my way
But I saw what I saw
You gave yourself away

Your eyes say you're mine
Even though you looked away
Your eyes say you're mine
There's not much else to say

@dusy7969 - thank you for commenting. I'm not completely sure what you are saying but if it is a comment about the obvious egoism of the protagonist then yes it is a very small thing indeed given the events of the day....

@vydyulashashi - thank you and I hope I spelled your name right!

Those moments in life when this you describe happens, is magic moments that one never forget. Some of the moments didn’t result in anything more but is still magic and exciting. And reading this song brought back the memories. This is a very beautiful and emotional song!

@thougtforce - Thank you. That moment of eye contact is exciting because it becomes "now what?" That's where the tension and exhilaration comes from...

We all cross a stranger, and a connection is immediate. Sadly in my experience not much becomes of it. Too wide a gap, and the courage is not found to cross it. Love what you drew here... :) I think you are a man with the courage.

@Marina - I'm glad you liked it... People are afraid of rejection... Ir's likely that I walk up and you say "I was looking at the painting on the wall behind you." !!!! Me? Courage? Uh... I'm not James Bond but I'll look you in the eye... Remember though... "I'm Not Your Usual..."


Marina Lester 5 years ago

Haha yes I remember, but I felt a masculine strength in you, as you know is you signature. Not James Bond? Haha there were times you could have fooled me :P I know, you're still soft, still very vulnerable, which is why you are such a lover without.. you couldn't be. And I still think, you have the courage :) Peace.

@marina - James Bond is the epitomy of masculinity, confidence and fearlessness around beautiful women because he knows what he has to offer. I know what I have in myself and I always feel that if a woman really got to know me that she would be intrigued. But the bar scene is a tough place to display who you really are so it is difficult to reach someone with all the pressure of the first few minutes when you encounter a beautiful stranger... in the end you can't look at that situation as a defining moment... I'm like anyone else in terms of vulnerability. If I fall for someone I fall for someone and at that point the heart is breakable. But I'm no longer worried about losing at love because I have a life that gives me the strength to survive so maybe that is courage you speak of. Thanks for the support and peace to you too....
