Fell Into Her Deep Blue Eyes

This song is by Tim O'Brien and appears on the album Traveler (2003).

We have our moods sometimes we might get out of synch
We might even have a fight if we have too much to drink
I guess she has her own shape and I know I must have mine
But we make one happy shape, one big happy shape most of the time

We were just two kids hangin' round in college town
We fell in love one afternoon as the sun went down
I haven't cared for money, I haven't cared for the things it buys
Since the day I fell into, since I fell into her deep blue eyes

I'd never leave her, I wouldn't last too long
You know the mornings and the afternoons
And the nights would be all wrong
I'd never leave her, I wouldn't compromise
I'd rather end it all if I couldn't fall into the deep blue eyes

When she's mad at me you know I'm just not good for much
I'd die if I had to reach out and she wasn't there to touch
I have to ask her questions, I have to ask her 'bout eighty times a day
It's more to hear that low-pitched voice
Than anything that she might have to say

I'd never leave her, I wouldn't last too long
You know the mornings and the afternoons
And the nights would be all wrong
I'd never leave her, I wouldn't compromise
I'd rather end it all if I couldn't fall into the deep blue eyes
Alright

It's been over twenty years since we took our honeymoon
Now sometimes I snore so loud she has to sleep in the other room
She complains about my drivin', she complains about the clothes I wear
I don't complain when I watch her walkin'
Walkin' around our room in her underwear

I'd never leave her, I wouldn't last too long
You know the mornings and the afternoons
And the nights would be all wrong
I'd never leave her, I wouldn't compromise
I'd rather end it all if I couldn't fall into the deep blue eyes

I'd never leave her, I wouldn't last too long
You know the mornings and the afternoons
And the nights would be all wrong
I'd never leave her, I wouldn't compromise
I'd rather end it all if I couldn't fall into the deep blue eyes
Deep blue...
