From the album Complete Surrender

Lyrics

[A different version of this song (same title) may be found in Rock II.]

VERSE
It might have been your smile or the way you saw the world
It could have been your talent or how much you loved me, girl
But your kiss told the story of everything you were
The one who put my heart and my mind in a blur

CHORUS
(But then) You changed, you rearranged
Goodness and light to dark of night
Or had I just realized…
I’d been kissing you with my eyes closed too tight
Telling myself everything was alright
The difference in truth and moonlight
Is I was kissing you with my eyes closed too tight

VERSE
I’ve come to understand I was wrong about your kiss
Good we hadn’t gone too far; too bad about what I’ll miss
But the time has come for me to make my getaway
’Cause deep in the woods sometimes you hear the banjo play

Repeat CHORUS

BRIDGE
Now it’s time to say goodbye
There’s a better world waitin’ for me

Repeat CHORUS

TAG
Yes, I was kissing you with my eyes closed too tight
