  • 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 Writer/s: BRUCE SPRINGSTEEN
