 Emerald Eyes    music/lyrics Jeff Powers

I was in love with you before I learned to call your name
You became a part of me the first time I looked into your face
I’ve been up and down ever since I walked out on you
Left you without a trace but I still carry a piece of you

Now the time’s flown by
And I just want to set things right...by you
Cause you were the best thing to happen in my life
In my heart your love still shines...it’s true

We were lovers for a while but I set out to be the next voodoo chile
Wiped away that innocent smile I guess I had something to prove
Now the dream is gone and I’m glad to write a simple song and you can say this one’s for you

Now the time’s flown by and I hope to see you next time maybe next life
And I’ll know you from your smile and your emerald eyes
In my heart your love resides...it’s true

I want to thank you for what you did for me
You made me feel like someone for the first time in my history
Now you’re not by my side but your love gave me wings for life And I take it with me all the time

And now the time’s flown by and I just want to say something nice to you
Cause you were the best thing to happen in my life
In your love I found my pride it’s true
And I hope to see your smile and those emerald eyes
Oh those emerald eyes...it’s true
