I met an old man
And told him to tell me all the fantasies
And while the old man droned on
I slept with ease
I was undisturbed; imagining
All the things I could have
That the old man showed me in my dreams
But it was too good to last
My blissful sleep
I saw a child
With tears in his eyes
With ragged clothes and bare feet
He begged for mercy
And the old man kept on going
Oblivious to this new revelation upon me
I walked out to find
The child's hopeful eyes
I will sacrifice everything for you
Don't you tremble
I will leave my fantasies behind
I promise you your green eyes shall shine
Why do now everything I had evermore wanted to hoard seem pointless
It's your green eyed love that has changed my directions
Why would I want paper and metal?
When I have a home in heaven
And all the deep love and affections
That brightens my world
My green eyed love
I met the old man again
He questioned me why I had left
And I smiled
He wouldn't understand the love that no evil could withstand
My green eyed love
