Angel Eyes Lyrics and Video Sung by by Paulini

 

Girl, you’re looking fine tonight,
and every guy has got you in his sights
What you’re doing with a clown like me,
is surely one of life’s little mysteries

So tonight I’ll ask the stars above,
“How did I ever win your love?”
What did I do?
What did I say,
to turn your angel eyes my way?

Well, I’m the guy who never learned to dance,
never even got one second glance
Across a crowded room was close enough,
I could look but I could never touch

So tonight I’ll ask the stars above,
“How did I ever win your love?”
What did I do?
What did I say,
to turn your angel eyes my way?

Don’t anyone wake me,
if it’s just a dream
‘Cause she’s the best thing,
that’s ever happened to me

All you fellows, you can look all you like,
but this girl, you see, she’s leavin’ here with me tonight

 

There’s just one more thing that I have to know,
if this is love why does it scare me so?
It must be something only you can see,
’cause girl I feel it when you look at me

So tonight I’ll ask the stars above,
“How did I ever win your love?”
What did I do?
What did I say,
to turn your angel eyes my way?
