right before my eyes
the truth is very clear
i read the writing on your wall
my cheek feels falling tear
you have that look those flickering eyes
that cannot hold my gaze
your feet are inching toward the door
while mine both stay in place

right down deep in my heart
the truth is very clear
i see you dancing joyously
as you leave me sitting here
you could have left me a parting gift
a sign of your regret
instead your smile is beaming wide
but my grimace is hard and set

why don't you love me
why do ya shove me
out the door and down the stairs
why don't you care
why don't you care for me
why don't you want me
why do ya haunt me
in my sleep and through the days
why don't you stay
why don't you say you are mine

right before my eyes
you're walking hand in hand
two pairs of eyes are sparkling
four steps are oh so grand
you look like king and queen
ah the royalty of love
while i live in memories
and wear my peasant gloves
