Goodbye In Her Eyes

Album: Uncaged (2012)
Charted: 48
  • I could tell that it was over
    When her lips met mine
    It was an emptiness in her voice
    Hesitation when she smiled
    She didn't have to say a word
    It was just so plain to see
    She had found what she'd been looking for
    And I knew it wasn't me

    I saw goodbye in her eyes
    I don't think I can change it
    There's no way to disguise
    We will never make it

    Sometimes I feel like a clown
    Who can't wash off his make-up
    All she wanted it was gone
    Prince Charming I wasn't
    But I would trade a thousand Babylons
    To be in her arms tomorrow
    But like tide her love has come and gone
    And it's time for me to go

    I saw goodbye in her eyes
    I don't think I can change it
    There's no way to disguise
    We will never make it

    Now she sees right through me
    Should I hold on to what we've got
    Is it just a waste of time
    One thing that I know for sure
    I saw goodbye in her eyes
    I saw goodbye in her eyes

    I know you got somebody new now
    All my candles have burned out
    He's gonna love the way you shine
    So did I
    So don't smile at me if it ain't what you need
    With that goodbye in your eyes
    I know that I can't change it
    (Now you see right through me)
    There's no way to disguise
    We will never make it

    I saw goodbye in your eyes
    I know that I can't change it
    (Now you see right through me, goodbye in your eyes)
    Should I hold on
    We will never make it
    (Now you see right through me, goodbye in your eyes)
    Should I hold on
    Is it just a waste of time
    One thing that I know for sure
    I saw goodbye in your eyes
    I saw goodbye in your eyes
    I know that it's overWriter/s: JOHN HOPKINS, SONIA LEIGH, WYATT DURRETTE, ZAC BROWN
