I saw him and told myself he was my dream come true
I let my eyes decieve me from the start
They told me I wanted him more than I wanted you
Guess my eyes were bigger than my heart.

Wasn't I the foolish one, Lord, above what have I done
For his love I tore our world apart
Now he's here but it's no good I don't care the way I should
Guess my eyes were bigger than my heart.

I allowed these eyes of mine to lead me into sin
And I thought that I could love him true
Now he stands out in the cold my heart won't let him in
Guess my eyes were bigger than my heart.

Wasn't I the foolish one, Lord, above what have I done
For his love I tore our world apart
Now he's here but it's no good I don't care the way I should
Guess my eyes were bigger than my heart.

Guess my eyes were bigger than my heart...
