I left a woman waiting
I met her sometime later
She said, "I see your eyes are dead"

"What happened to you, lover?
What happened to you, my lover?
What happened to you, lover?
What happened to you?"

And since she spoke the truth to me
I tried to answer truthfully
Whatever happened to my eyes

Happened to your beauty
Happened to your beauty
What happened to your beauty
Happened to me

We took ourselves to someone's bed
And there we fell together
Quick as dogs and truly dead were we

And free as running water
Free as running water
Free as running water
Free as you and me

The way it's got to be
The way it's got to be, lover

Songwriters
Spector, Phil / Cohen, Leonard
