Words & music by Vonda Shepard

He had his father's eyes
And his mother's point of view
There was no disguise
He couldn't see through
Sometimes the little things
They don't seem so small
But they had a good thing...overall

(Chorus)

Nobody, nobody, nobody, nobody
Knew him the way you did
It's hard to say exactly why he left you
Maybe a change for good
Don't cry Ilene

There was a rainbow over here
He didn't see it from over there
Black and white are fine
But he's color blind
Watching over me
There must have been some kind of mystery
Because I wanted him too
But it was all wrong, all wrong

(Chorus)

Nobody, nobody, nobody, nobody
Knew him the way you did
It's hard to say exactly why he left you
Maybe a change for good
Don't cry Ilene

Nobody, nobody, nobody, nobody
Knew him the way you did
It's hard to say exactly why he left you
Maybe a change for good
Don't cry Ilene, no don't cry
It's hard to say exactly why he left you
Maybe a change for good
Don't cry Ilene...Oh no, Don't cry
