Frankie Valli – My Eyes Adored You

Posted in Lyrics, Song Comment tagged at 3:50 am by LynxLee


‘Tis the feeling of adoring someone from a far, knowing you’re too busy to love someone like that person and growing separate ways. Everyone sometimes feel that same way, thinking of “What ifs” and how it may change your life. Knowing that you are in the comfort of the feeling of a love that you left behind, and that possibly it’s for the best.

My wife liked this song a lot, so I thought of posting it up. As previously mentioned, we went to watch Jersey Boys in Malaysia and their songs still stuck in our heads.


My eyes adored ya
Though I never laid a hand on you
My eyes adored ya
Like a million miles away from me you couldn’t see how I adored ya
So close, so close and yet so far

CHORUS
My eyes adored ya
Though I never laid a hand on you
My eyes adored ya

Like a million miles away from me you couldn’t see how I adored ya
So close, so close and yet so far

Carried your books from school
Playin’ “make-believe you’re married to me”
You were fifth-grade, I was sixth
When we came to be
Walkin’ home every day over Barnegat Bridge and Bay
Till we grew into the me and you
Went our separate ways

CHORUS

Headed for city lights
Climbed the ladder up to fortune and fame
I worked my fingers to the bone
Made myself a name
Funny I seemed to find
That no matter how the years unwind
Still I reminisce ’bout the girl I miss
And the love I left behind

CHORUS

(My eyes adored ya)
All my life I will remember
(Though I never laid a hand on you)
How warm and tender we were way back then, whoa, whoa, baby
(Like a million miles away from me you couldn’t see how I adored ya)
Oh, the feeling, sad regrets
(So close, so close and yet so far)
I know I won’t ever forget ya, my childhood friend

(My eyes adored ya)
(Though I never laid a hand on you)
(My eyes adored ya)
(Like a million miles away from me you couldn’t see how I adored ya)

FADE
So close, so close and yet so far
