These Eyes Lyrics

by India Arie

These eyes never saw you leavin'
This heart is in need of some healing
These arms are letting you go
And our life is the greatest story never told

How many more ways can I explain this to you, boy
We have had this conversation several times before
I will accept nothing less than your complete respect
If you cannot give me that then maybe I should step

These eyes never saw you leavin'
This heart is in need of some healing, yeah
These arms are letting you go
Our life is the greatest story never told

All this cryin', all this fightin' simply ain't my style
Though you're one of the most important people in my life
I love you from the day we met, I know you love me too
But at this point walking away is the best thing we can do

These eyes never saw you leavin'
This heart is in need of some healing, yeah
These arms are letting you go
Our life is the greatest story never told

Are we meant to be man and wife? The answer I don't know
Of life's many mystery's what intrigues me the most
Is who our children would have been, I guess we'll never know
Even as I walk away, I'll always keep the hope

These eyes never saw you leavin'
This heart is in need of some healing, yeah
These arms are letting you go
That's life
That's the way the story goes

Truth is, every relationship is a lesson, yeah
Truth is, I saw it coming but it hurts anyway
Truth is, I'm not the reason you're so angry
Truth is, you're not the reason I'm so passive
Truth is, I've got to take back my power

Truth is
The reason why it hurts so bad
To walk away from you

These eyes, I never saw you leavin'
This heart my heart is in need of some healing
These arms, these arms are letting you go
That's life, the greatest story never told

These eyes
This heart, is in need of some healing
These arms are letting you go
That's life, the greatest story never told

Our love, the greatest story never told
Our life is the greatest story never told
Our love is the greatest story never told, that's right
And that's the way the story goes
