Lyrics

Eyes Make Water

Written By: Tbird Luv

It's funny how eyes make water,
yes I am my mother's daughter,
why do you choose words that sting?
you know they last a long time in my memories.

Yet the distance between us grows stronger and your presence it lingers no longer,
Though you'll always be a part of my heart.
You're in my heart
So deep in my heart.

So long baby bye bye
yea certainly I cried
I even asked myself why
it had to end this way.

Its the water from eyes
my eyes they keep cryin'
It's the water from my eyes, my eyes they keep fallin' it's the water. 2x
