John Conlee – In My Eyes Lyrics

She’s just a woman
A hundred pounds of flesh and blood
Quick with a smile warm with a touch for me
She’s just a woman
And not the least or the most desired
But she sets one man’s heart on fire
And it’s me that she wants to please

And in my eyes
God never made a more beautiful girl
In my eyes
There’s no one more lovely in all of the world
And she looks at me at times with such surprise
When she sees how special she is in my eyes

She’s only human
And she cries sometimes when she looks in the mirror
And counts a new line that seemed to appear overnight
She’s only human
It’s not that she’s vain, she’s just afraid
That there’ll come a time when I’ll turn away at the sight
But I swear that’s not right

And in my eyes
She just grows lovelier to me
And in my eyes
She’s only aging gracefully
And a thousand strands of gray wont disguise
The woman shell always be in my eyes

Sometimes she makes mistakes
But I’m aware of her faults
Her moods go up and down
But that’s just because
She’s just a woman
And giving her love to only me
Without her help I would be less of a man
Than she thinks I am

And in my eyes
Love never changes or pretends
In my eyes
Her mystery never ends
And everything I feel as years go by
Makes her love grow sweeter still in my eyes
In my eyes…
She is my woman
