Performances (77)

It's been awhile since you've been around 
Been drifting like a gypsy from town to town 
I've been to France and Rome 
Seen Duomo's glittered domes 
I've laid beneath Spanish summer skies 
I've seen nothing so lovely as your violet eyes

Do you recall the turquoise sea? 
On the isles off the shores of Greece 
I've sworn I won't forget 
Your exact smile where we went 
I see you in everything 
And everywhere I go, 
I see your violet eyes

Seasons come and seasons pass 
Time is fragile like a looking glass 
Oh, I know there must be something more constant than time 
Cause everywhere I go, 
I see your violet eyes

If I could write a postcard to you 
And know that somehow it would get through 
I'm not sure I could express 
This aching in my chest 
I guess I'll always miss you 
And everywhere I go, 
I'll see your violet eyes

Seasons come and seasons pass 
Time is fragile like a looking glass 
Oh, I know there must be something more constant than time 
Cause everywhere I go, 
I see your violet eyes

It was a year ago last Christmas 
We spent in Hawaii 
We were playing in the sand not snow 
We were laughing in the sea 
And it'll be a year coming this 4th of July 
When I held your hand 
And for the last time, 
You closed your violet eyes

Seasons come and seasons pass 
Time is so fragile 
It's fragile as a looking glass 
And I know there must be something more constant than time 
Cause at night when I sleep 
I feel you all around me 
I feel your eyes upon me 
I see your violet eyes
