Deep Thoughts

Do you ever just wonder about random, insignificat little things until they drive you crazy? I do. Let me give you an example.

Recently, I was driving home from work and listening to the radio. A song by the Eagles came on, and as I sang along (don't worry, I was by myself), it triggered something that has bugged me for well over a decade. It bugs me every time I hear the song.

The song in question is "Lyin' Eyes". There is a part that goes:

She rushes to his arms, they fall together/ she whispers that it's only for a while/ she swears that soon she'll be comin' back forever/ she pulls away and leaves him with a smile.

Now, does she pull away and leave with a smile on her face, or does she pull away and leave him with a smile on his face. When you listen to the way they actually sing that line, with the emphasis, it really could go either way

Opinions anyone?

C'mon daughter. It can only a smile on HER face.

Why? Well, face it, the smile on HIS face would be automatic. Goes without saying. Thus, since the lyrics make specific mention, it must be on HER face.

(Pure male logic there.)

I believe John has a point. A smile on both of their faces but only her's is mentioned.

Thanks for the weather info.

Don't know Christina, but I'm opting for both smiling.

Hi Christina ~~ I'll have a listen next time I hear it or play it.
Thank you so much for your comments, glad you enjoy reading my posts when you get time. Glad you liked the photos of Shepparton's cows and my flowers. I hope you are enjoying your summer weather, there are more things to enjoy when the weather is nice. Take care, Love, Merle.

Could go either way. She could be pulling back with a smile on her face, or pulling back leaving him with a smile on his.
