With Different Eyes (rock)
 
Lyrics
VERSE
His heart is broken; I understand
He's my best friend; he's a helluva man
But as tears go by, his heart will mend
But even a strong heart can be broken again

VERSE
You were his love; you were my friend
I never thought your love would end
But as some embers die, some start to glow
I'm not sure what to do, but there's one thing I know

CHORUS
(That) (Yes) I'm watching you with different eyes
Now I realize I've loved you always
You told him goodbye; you walked away
Now I'm watching you with different eyes

VERSE
I've tried not to see how you're looking at me
I've tried to hide what's deep in my mind
You broke his heart; will I break it, too?
I've got to hold you; it's time that he knew

Repeat CHORUS (2x)

TAG
Yes, I'm watching you with different eyes

Story Behind the Song:
I once met a young couple from Germany. After I knew them pretty well, I asked him how he met her. He said she was his best friend's girlfriend. The rest of the story is that when they broke up, he was looking at her "with different eyes." I loved the phrase and the sentiment.
