From the recording Blue Leaf On A Green Tree


[A different version of this song may be found in Rock III.]

Everybody knew you were the luckiest pair
He was all you ever wanted; he was an amazing man
Everywhere you went, love was in the air
You were sharing time as only lovers can

But now you’ve learned he wasn’t what he seemed
What you had has vanished just like it was a dream
So now, my friend...

(But for now) Close your cryin’ eyes, let me ease your pain
To keep on lovin’ him is burnin’ candles in the rain
Rest your tortured spirit before you go insane
Just close your cryin’ eyes; let me ease your pain

I know it’s way too early to think about tomorrow
So I’ll think these thoughts without saying a thing
I’ll be your friend as you struggle with your sorrow
Someday we’ll know what the future brings

Repeat CHORUS (2x)/TAG
Close your cryin’ eyes; let me ease your pain
