Jessi Colter – I'm Not Lisa lyrics

I'm not Lisa, my name is Julie
Lisa left you years ago
My eyes are not blue
But mine won't leave you
'Til the sunlight has touched your face

She was your morning light
Her smile told of no night
Your love for her grew
With each rising sun

And then one winter day
His hand led hers away
She left you here drowning in your tears, here
Where you've stayed for years
Crying Lisa, Lisa

I'm not Lisa, my name is Julie
Lisa left you years ago
My eyes are not blue
But mine won't leave you
'Til the sunlight shines through your face

I'm not Lisa

    Read the lyrics people! Lisa didn't die. She is a cheating w***e who ran off with another man. Yes, you can be sad and miss someone who has done you that way. Now when Julie tells him she loves him, he is still hung up on the ex, and also looks at other women as potential lovers who will break his heart. Lisa is a b-i-t-c-h who ruined a good man.

    Don't read it so literally. "His hand led her away" is a gentle metaphor of death. The "hand" of God. Julie wouldn't (or shouldn't) want him if he were just pining over a woman that dumped him for another lover. The empathy for them comes from her offering of light and hope to a man in true despair.

    Don't read it so literally. She was led away, lost forever. Julie wouldn't (or shouldn't) want him if he were simply pining away over someone who just dumped him for another lover. That would make them both pathetic losers no one would empathize with. "His hand led her away" a gentle metaphor of death. The hand of God.

    See. In my blue eyes with the name of lisa. This came from a way different outlook of life! I was placed in a foster home wen like 1yrs give or take few months old and a few others where already there when I arrived most much older! They say you don't remember when that lil. I remember being the happiest in my life of having a family of a mom and dad and siblings. One who resided and placed there was a girl name julie. She was the only one I felt secure with. She became my sister! I was taken out of the home appr. 4-5 yrs old. Till this day she is my sister yes far and in between contact but was/is my sister. We connected again back in 1988 and she helped me as that's when I found out I was pregnant and no family. So we became close again for few yrs. Then again lost contact for yrs. Well she met a great man lives in ft lauderdale and I live near clearwater moving here from buffalo, ny sept 2012. We now live bout 4 hrs away. Last few years we text holidays and stuff, such as this morning on thanksgiving day. I get a text wishing me a happy turkey day. Well I am soooooooooooooo thankful after 41 yrs she is part of my life regardless of how much we keep contact. I love you sis always never a day that goes by your not in my mind and every second in my heart!
    Lisa/julie sis forever!

    It is hard to lose a loved one due do death. This is understandable becuase we cannot erase good memories.
    This does not apply to lisa who left him for some one else. Her ex lover was crying not for lisa but for himself. His tears were just questions marks: why did she leave me? This lover is wrong. He should just forget her and move one with his life. She is not worthy of his tears. I would have said the same thing if the guy leaves a girl with a broken her. Forget about it her and move on. Enjoy the one who loves you.
