My eyes adored you
Though I never laid a hand on you,
My eyes adored you
Like a million miles away from me
You couldn't see how I adored you:
So close, so close and yet so far
 
Carried your books from school,
Playing make-believe you're married to me
You were fifth grade, I was sixth
When we came to be
 
Walking home every day
Over Barnegat Bridge to Bay,
Till we grew into the me and you
Who went our separate ways
 
My eyes adored you
Though I never laid a hand on you,
My eyes adored you
Like a million miles away from me
You couldn't see how I adored you:
So close, so close and yet so far
 
Headed for city lights,
Climbed the ladder up to fortune and fame,
I worked my fingers to the bone,
Made myself a name.
 
Funny, I seem to find that,
No matter how the years unwind,
Still I reminisce about the giri miss
And the love I left behind...
 
My eyes adored you
Though I never laid a hand on you,
My eyes adored you
Like a million miles away from me
You couldn't see how I adored you:
So close, so close and yet so far
 
All my life I will remember how warm and tender
We were way back then
Though I'm feeling sad regrets I know
I won't ever forget
You, my childhood friend
 
My eyes adored you
Though I never laid a hand on you,
My eyes adored you
Like a million miles away from me
You couldn't see how I adored you:
So close, so close and yet so far
