She had the yellow eyes of opal moons
So full of love, how could she see?
He thought he'd drown in them
So he set sail
Gracefully she dreamed him free

The Indian Ocean washed him on her shore
Flat backed on a dirt packed floor
One eye on the door
You're ten thousand miles away
As the birds fly, and you want to die
Because you let her go

You say, you say

Oh when she holds me, nobody told me
All of the fear her love would bring
If you could see me
Would you believe me darling
That all my fear was only love

He had a one time look at paradise
A white light, it was bright to blinding paradise
All of the angels that you can't see
When you're equating love
Equating love, with never being free

And you say, you say

Oh when she holds me, nobody told me
All of the fear her love would bring
If you could see me
Would you believe me darling
That all my fear was only love

She had the yellow eyes of opal moons
You looked away from them too soon
The best I can say to you
Though I don't know when
Is that I know you'll feel this way
I know, I know you'll feel this way again

And next time

Tell her you love her
You're always with her
Even when you are far away
Cause if she could see you
I think she'd believe you darling
That all your fear was only love
all your fear was only love
