Eyes That Won't Meet Mine (Del McCoury)

They say a picture's worth a thousand words Tonight your silence speaks a thousand pictures I won't say that you lied to me We all lie to ourselves, I don't give lectures Just look at me Don't try to protect me I need an answer Not a Valentine Look at me I'll find the truth there written Written in the eyes In the eyes that won't meet mine I know you mean well but my life has been hell Wondering if the sky is finally falling You know I love you but there ain't much of you left For me you here somewhere else a callin' So let's put all the cards on the table tonight Have some faith that no truth is past forgiving I might be stronger than you think I might not drive myself to drink Who knows I might even go on living
