|Alternative Title||First line of text: If you love me why don't you tell me so?;First line of chorus: Bright eyes I know you so well|
VERSE 01: If you love me why don’t you tell me so?/What’s the use of always saying “no?”/For now and then your secret I surmise when I look in your eyes.
VERSE 02: I’ve often wondered if you really knew,/All your laughing eyes tell me of you./You might as well confess and name the day if they mean all they say.
CHORUS: Bright eyes I know you so well/Bright eyes what secrets you tell/I can’t believe a word you say/Your eyes are traitors, they give you away./Bright eyes they give me a thrill/Bright eyes just say what you will;/There is a meaning you cannot disguise in your bright eyes.
