The Four Seasons My Eyes Adored You Lyrics

[Chorus:]
My eyes adored you
Though I never laid a hand on you
My eyes adored you
Like a million miles away from me you couldn't see
How I adored you
So close, so close and yet so far away

Carried your books from school
Playing make-believe you're married to me
You were fifth grade, I was sixth
When we came to be
Walking home every day over Barnegat Bridge and Bay
Till we grew into the me and you
Who went our separate ways

[Chorus:]

Headed for city lights
Climbed the ladder up to fortune and fame
I worked my fingers to the bone
Made myself a name
Funny, I seem to find that, no matter how the years unwind
Still I reminisce about the girl I miss
And the love I left behind...

[Chorus:]

All my life I will remember how warm and tender
We were way back then
Though I'm feeling sad regrets I know I won't ever forget
You, my childhood friend

[Chorus:]
