It's that day... and without getting too misty on you, I wanted to share some lyrics. "Angel Eyes" is my latest favorite ballad - each note is so full of intense, hollow longing and desire that the song seems to take forever. But Ella does it right, and the lyrics are worth sharing today.
Try to think that love´s not around
But it´s uncomfortably near
My old heart ain´t gaining no ground
Because my angel eyes ain´t here
Angel eyes, that old devil sent
They glow unbearably bright
Need I say that my love´s mispent
Mispent with angel eyes tonight
So drink up all you people
Order anything you see
Have fun you happy people
The laughs and the jokes are on me
Pardon me but I got to run
The fact´s uncommonly clear
Got to find who´s now number one
And why my angel eyes ain't here
Oh, where is my angel eyes?
Excuse me while I disappear
Angel eyes, angel eyes.
