lyrics

OLD EYES

I don't see the sun,
I don't see the rain,
I don't see the cars that come my way,
I don't see the seasons changing no more.
I don't see the towers,
Don't see the sky,
Don't see the cars that pass me by,
I don't see the pigeons fly as they go.

And as I'm walking in the street,
Don't see the puddles at my feet,
I'm feeling kind of new in this place.
'Cause I got so tired of these streets,
The the grey concrete,
this town well it can have the bleakest face.

And oh my old eyes can't be so sure,
'Cause they don't see it anymore.
Oh my old eyes can't be so sure,
'Cause they don't see it anymore.

Because, every day,
Everything is so grey in these streets around here,
The sun disappears when I find myself alone in this town.
And honeslty,
There's times when I will admit that it was too much for me,
The grey concrete,
Well I find this place keeps bringing me down.

But something about you,
Well you do the things you do
And its changing what I see here every day.
With your hand in mine,
The clouds that cover the sky,
Well you know they just up and melt away.

And oh my old eyes can't be so sure,
'Cause they don't see it anymore.
Oh my old eyes can't be so sure,
'Cause they don't see it anymore.

But every time you go away,
And the whole world turns from green to grey,
Well I just have to give a thought to you,
And everything you are,

And oh my old eyes can't be so sure,
'Cause they won't see it anymore.
Oh my old eyes can't be so sure,
'Cause they won't see it anymore.
Oh my old eyes,
Oh my old eyes,
Well they don't see it anymore.
