Robert John – Sad Eyes lyrics

Looks like its over
You knew I couldn't stay
She's coming home today

We had a good thing
I'll miss your sweet love
Why must you look at me that way
It's over.....


Sad eyes
Turn the other way
I don't want to see you cry
Sad eyes
You knew there'd come a day
When we would have to say goodbye

Try to remember
The magic that we shared
In time, your broken heart will mend

I never used you
You knew I really cared
I hate to sit and defend
But it's over......


Guitar solo

Sad eyes
You knew there would come a day
When we would have to say goodbye

    To me, this song represents a man having an affair with a woman, who is not his real wife, or girlfriend. His real wife or girlfriend returns home from wherever she was, and he has to break up his relationship with his lover. His lover is very sad, it breaks her heart, and he tries to console her by telling her he never used her, and that he really did care, but he has to resume his relationship with his real wife or girlfriend.

    A guy is telling a girl, it was a good time while it lasted, but that it is over, their relationship. They both new his girl could come back. Or his girlfriend left out of town for a while, and she is back. Maybe he was cheating on the first girl? This could also be the other way around, she could be cheating on him, and could be telling a guy goodbye?
