Lyrics

Guess My Eyes Were Bigger Than My Heart
I saw her and told myself,
She was my dream come true
I let my eyes deceive me
From the start.
They told me I wanted her
More than I wanted you
Guess my eyes were bigger
Than my heart.
Wasn’t I the foolish one
Lord above, what have I done
For her love I tore my world apart.
Now she’s here but its no good
I don’t care the way I should
Guess my eyes were bigger than my heart.
I allowed these eyes of mine
To lead me into sin
Made me think that I could love her true.
Now she stands out in the cold
My heart won’t let her in
There was only room enough for you.
Wasn’t I the foolish one
Lord above, what have I done
For her love I tore my world apart.
Now she’s here but its no good
I don’t care the way I should
Guess my eyes were bigger than my heart.
