You Never Looked at Me That Way

Verse 1

Go on and gaze at fading photographs
With smiling eyes and a face that laughs
It’s a love that a good man longs to hold
It’s a hero’s song that you sing for gold
You never looked at me that way

Chorus
You called me Joe and I called you dad
You were the best friend I ever had
We rode bikes, we played all day
You never looked at me that way

Verse 2

You spun the wheel and bet on black
Risking it all, never looking back
It’s the truth I see in those desperate eyes
You try to hide underneath your disguise
You never looked at me that way

Chorus
You called me Joe and I called you dad
You were the best friend I ever had
We rode bikes, we played all day
You never looked at me that way

Bridge
You said you loved me like a father would
I tried to believe you if I only could
But the question is who gave you that right
The answer is you weren’t the white knight

Chorus
You called me Joe and I called you dad
You were the best friend I ever had
We rode bikes, we played all day
You never looked at me that way
