lyrics

Eyes that lied from afar
Eyes that never really glimmered like stars
I guess I was crazy to take it from Iris Divine

Lips that smiled
Upturned with guilt
Finely spun outta danger and silk
And words that rolled down to the ocean and I followed each time

I'm stealing away
So far from your tears babe
Hate to leave you alone
With those eyes just lyin' in the sun
And never for me

Her eyes stare
Out Charleston glass
Well at least now they'll tell you the truth
And in their reflection a thousand white summers gone dark

We went down
Sunday eve
Just to see all the riverboats leave
As if it weren't hard

But it's so hard when you're kissing the shore
That she don't see anymore
Tell her I ain't coming back again
'Cause my heart, pretty Iris, won't mend

I'm stealing away
So far from your tears babe
Hate to leave you alone
With those eyes just lyin' in the sun
And never for me
