Ever since I was a child
I've turned it over in my mind
I sang by the piano
Tore my yellow dress and
Cried and cried and cried


And I don't want to see what I've seen
To undo what has been done
Turn off all the lights
Let the morning come, come

Now there's green light in my eyes
And my lover on my mind
And I sing from the piano
Tear my yellow dress and
Cry and cry and cry
Over the love of you

On this champagne-drunken home
Against the current of gold
Everybody see I love him
'Cause it's the feeling that you get
When the afternoon is set
On the bridge into the city

I don't want to see what I've seen
To undo what has been done
Turn off all the lights
Let the morning come

There's green light in my eyes
And my lover on my mind
And I sing from the piano
Tear my yellow dress and
Cry and cry and cry

'Cause your're a hard soul to save
With an ocean in the way
But I'll get around it
'Cause your’re a hard soul to save
With an ocean in the way
But I'll get around it

Now there's green light in my eyes
And my lover on my mind
And I sing from the piano
Tear my yellow dress and
Cry and cry and cry
Over the love of you

Cry and cry and cry
Over the love of you
(I can see the green light
I can see it in your eyes)
Cry and cry and cry
Over the love of you

I can see the green light
I can see it in your eyes
