Off-Broadway Musical
Marry Me a Little - Your Eyes Are Blue Lyrics

And every single night, he'd see her
Across the way
I'd want to say-
He'd want to say
"Your eyes are blue
And I love you"
But, never had he spoken
Never had he dared
Beautiful as she was

He was scared

Then, suddenly one day, he met her
And he could see
Her eyes were blue
As they could be
What did he do?
Well... you tell me...

WOMAN:

Across the way
She hoped he'd say
"Your eyes are blue
And I love you"
And yet she knew
There was a wall between them
Built around her heart
This was their dilemma
Keeping them apart

BOTH:
To break the wall?
And that was us
