There was a light in your eyes that I night that I cried
You held my hand and told me a lie
I believed you and as far as I know
You have everlasting love you never show
There was a light in your eyes that day we first kissed
Awkward as it was, we almost missed
I held onto your promises to last to the day
To keep all my feelings for you at bay
There was a light in your eyes that long summer night
Up to that point we'd never had a fight
I held onto you while I slept
And in my dreams, I wept
There was a light in your eyes the day I came home
With the thought in my heart I would never be alone
I held on to a lie to keep my heart
I held onto you like a poisonous dart
