lyrics

Your eyes were faded
A Robin's Egg Blue
Not without love,
could I look at you
Went away for a while
Onto someone new
But I never did lose sight of you

The teasers and the takers
Have tested me well
There were many times
That I almost fell
It's been a long legged road
Filled with bones and booze
Chasin' after cowboys, after curfew

And I lost you again, and again, and again
Goodbye to- a gone, again
You're a long lost mystic
Someone I never knew
And all I see is blue now, when I look at you

Memories of you fade and scatter
Like fallen leaves
Into the background
Behind the trees
Here's where I find it, a peace so wide
And I don't have to let you inside

Yet I find you again, and again, and again
Hello to my best friend
You're a come home hero,
And I always knew
That I'd love you again, my Robin's Egg Blue

You saved me from the fire, I pulled your heart from the wire
Well, all I know now,
is that I never tire
Of a love so wild,
And a heart so true
Just lookin' into eyes of Robin's Egg Blue

Still I find you again, and again, and again
Hello to, my best friend
You're a come home hero,
And I always knew
That I'd love you again, my Robin's Egg Blue.

And all I see is love now, when I look at you.
