Puffy Eyes

When we were little,

Our eyes were as big as our smiles.

Now our eyes are oh so brittle,

With a tear every once in a while.

 

Our eyes were as big as our smiles,

Not knowing the future would hurt.

With a tear every once in a while,

We hide our puffy eyes in our linen shirts.

 

Not knowing the future would hurt,

We dreamed of money, love and more money.

We hide our puffy eyes in our linen shirts

From laughing at our dreams being funny.

 

We dreamed of money, love, and more money,

Only to grow up with broken wallets and hearts.

We laugh at our dreams being funny

And we cry as we watch them fall apart.

 

We grew up with broken wallets and hearts.

When we were little,

We cried as we watched our dreams fall apart,

Now our eyes are even more so brittle.
