by Helen O'Connell

Your green eyes with their soft lights
Your eyes that promise sweet nights
Bring to my soul a longing a thirst for love devine
In dreams I seem to hold you to find you and enfold you
Our lips meet and our hearts too with a thrill so sublime

Those cool and limpid green eyes
A pool wherein my love lies

So deep that in my searching for happiness
I fear that they will ever haunt me
All through my life they'll taunt me
But will they ever want me?
Green eyes make my dreams come true

Green eyes with their soft lights
And eyes that promise sweet nights
Bring to my soul a longing a thirst for love devine
In dreams I seem to hold you to find you and enfold you
Our lips meet and our hearts too with a thrill so sublime

Those cool and limpi green eyes
A pool where in my love lies
So deep that in my searching for happiness
I fear that they will ever haunt me
All through my life they'll taunt me
But will they ever want me?
Green eyes I love you
