Jessi Colter - I'm Not Lisa lyrics

 

I'm not Lisa, my name is Julie

Lisa left you years ago

My eyes are not blue

But mine won't leave you

'Til the sunlight has touched your face

She was your morning light

Her smile told of no night

Your love for her grew

With each rising sun

And then one winter day

His hand led hers away

She left you here drowning in your tears, here

Where you've stayed for years

Crying Lisa, Lisa

I'm not Lisa, my name is Julie

Lisa left you years ago

My eyes are not blue

But mine won't leave you

'Til the sunlight shines through your face
