  • He had his father's eyes
    And his mother's point of view
    There was no disguise
    He couldn't see through
    Sometimes the little things
    They don't seem so small
    But they had a good thing overall

    [Chorus]

    Nobody, nobody, nobody, nobody
    Knew him the way you did
    It's hard to say exactly why he left you
    Maybe a change for good
    Don't cry Ilene

    There was a rainbow over here
    He didn't see it from over there
    Black and white are fine
    But he's color blind
    Watching over me
    There must have been some kind of mystery
    Because I wanted him too
    But it was all wrong, all wrong

    [Chorus]

    Nobody, nobody, nobody, nobody
    Knew him the way you did
    It's hard to say exactly why he left you
    Maybe a change for good
    Don't cry Ilene

    Nobody, nobody, nobody, nobody
    Knew him the way you did
    It's hard to say exactly why he left you
    Maybe a change for good
    Don't cry Ilene, no don't cry
    It's hard to say exactly why he left you
    Maybe a change for good
    Don't cry Ilene
    Oh no, Don't cry Writer/s: VONDA SHEPARD
