My love must be a kind of blind love,
I can't see anyone but you
And dear, I wonder if you find love,
An optical illusion, too?

Are the stars out tonight?
I don't know if it's cloudy or bright
'Cause I only have eyes for you, dear
The moon may be high
But I can't see a thing in the sky
'Cause I only have eyes for you.

I don't know if we're in a garden,
Or on a crowded avenue,
You are here and so am I,
Maybe millions of people go by
But they all disappear from view,
For I only have eyes for you
