With You In My Eyes

Written for Tina Jacobowitz to whom I was married in the mid-80s. Many of my songs are written when relationships have gone sour, this one was before the relationship started in an attempt to get it to start. I have to think it helped make that happen (although the result of that, at least for Tina, was not felicitous). I intended the song to be somewhat light in tone with a lot of wordplay and some humor. But when a friend who had never heard the song read the lyrics she commented on how beautiful they were. Not sure about that, but clearly no matter how lightly I intended to treat the song, my deeper feelings came through. (In the spirit of full disclosure, I don’t drink, but I liked the image and the rhymes)
