Green eyes

He called me Magdalene
So much my eyes have seen
Cleopatra would have wept for these of green
I watch the people leave
I walk the sorry town
When I saw him first
He was looking down

He called me Magdalene
My say Queen
But he would not look
Into these eyes of green
He lay there alone
No one else around
When I turned to him
He was still looking down

I came
I witnessed
He's still looking down
Still looking down
And the people leave
Leave this girl
Leave this girl
Leave this town
And still he kneels
Does not look at me
He's drawing circles in the ground
