Come And Let Me Look In Your Eyes

Original and similar lyrics
(Denver/Henry) I guess growing isn't hard to do, just stand against the wall. Once I was just two feet high, today I'm six feet tall. But knowing who to listen to is something else again. Words just whistle 'round my head like seasons in the wind. All across the water, the clouds are sailing, they won't let me look at the sky. All I want to do is try and find myself, come and let me look in your eyes. In searching for the way to go, I've followed all the rules. The way they say to choose between the wise men and the fools. I listen to the words they say, I read what I should read. I do whatever's right to do, try to be what I should be. Someone let me in, I think the sky is falling, seems I've gotten lost on my way. All I want to do is try and find myself, come and let me look in your eyes. Oh, but wisdom isn't underground nor on a mountainside. Where am I to take myself? There's no place here to hide, where can I hide? All across the universe, the stars are fading. Seems we've gotten lost on our way. All I want to do is try and find myself, come and let me look in your eyes. Come and let me look in your eyes, come and let me look in your eyes.

Sad Beauty

Jill Sobule
I've held you in awe for so many years Only now do I know what I'm seeing I've analyzed every word that you've said To find a deeper meaning It went beyond curiosity It almost ecame an obsession To find a mere glance of love in your eyes A mere glance of love in your eyes You've got lines in your face from forced smiles The sadness is beginning to show in your eyes You can't hide it anymore, sad beauty Hide it anymore And you find it hard to live in your guise Time has not been very kind You can't hide it anymore Hide it anymore Do you still like being what you call free Its comfort must lie somewhat thin Hopeful lovers linger only so long While you hide what lies within Do you still like being a mystery It's lost much of its appeal From an idol above understanding To a loner who's tragically real (Chorus) It's been a rough life A very tough life (sad beauty) You can't hide it anymore Hide it anymore (sad beauty) Sad beauty

Birthday Card

JOSEPH ARTHUR "Big City Secrets"
She wrote her name with a heart Inside his birthday card Right beside the PS which read Please don't think I'm devious It's not that obvious In fact it's more of a mess You're what I find most beautiful But you're also what makes me the ugliest So i'm taking away all of the love I ever gave to you I think you should've known It was only ever on a loan And i'm running away I found myself a hiding place I've been uncomfortable looking in your eyes They always see right through my face And if you find your eyes You hunt me down 'Cause if I find my eyes I'll hunt you down And if you find your voice You hunt me down 'Cause if I find my voice I'll hunt you down He wrote his name with her heart On the back of a postcard Right beside the PS which read Please don't think this is malicious But ever since you left me I am a mess You made me happiest And now I'm lonely cause there was only you Touching your skin was like a showel through the ground I had no idea what I found A crown You crown me king Made me lion in your ring Training me with your see-through treasure And bribing me with your guilty pleasure You teach me how most things have no measure

I Will Find You

JIMMY NEEDHAM "Clear The Stage"
When you're lost and eyes are blind, too I will find you, I will find you Streetlight is burning through your window Silence building to crescendo Walls are closin' in Just like an hourglass the hours pass The clock is blinking 12 am It's reminiscent of a life, repetition Always wishin' you could start again You've been so far, so lost for so long Listen and hear my love song When you're lost and eyes are blind, too I will find you, I will find you Soon the stars will start to shine through I will find you, I will find you There ain't no stoppin' me now It's just a matter of how My voice calls, my hands stretch out And well, let me remind you: one day I will find you You thought there's something that could save you Like it's waiting to be found, found, found If you could just get your hands on it, You want it, and it would turn your life around, round, round Now you're working up a sweat to get it But what you thought was copacetic let you down, down, down, down It's a new day on the horizon Ready or not, here I come I recall being lost and empty Wishin' for another life to come and get me Dark days waitin' for the sun to hit me They tell me quit hopin' and I say don't tempt me Lookin' for a hope in a pretty face, any day, any place Gotta be better than what I'm livin' in What a cruel joke that this world plays Never said there's another ocean that I could be swimmin' in So I'm done bein' trapped and lonely Found a new life and I scrapped the old me Made a scrapbook called a testimony If you knew me, the new me is how you know me Tell them false hopes don't call or phone me Tell hollywood that I know she's phony I was once lost, now I'm found I couldn't look up, but god looked down

Save Your Generation

Jawbreaker
Flattered that you think I warrant ugliness. Gutters drain west, mud made a mess of us. It's time to leave this place. I'd saw through your wrist to find a better trap that fits. I'd saw through your traps to find a better you, a part of you that lasts. I saw through your trap and into my own wrists. Saw we were through, red ribbons spill to blue: a sight to sore your eyes. I got this dress. I'm hiking it around this waste of laughter. Slow dance alone with no one to the sound of four hands clapping. Congratulations to you both, I hope somewhere you're happy. If there's a moral to this story then I wish you'd show me. Hair in the blood, fly in the disappointment. Rubber, I'm glue. I'll write the book on you. It's sticking to my face. You need a little less than what you take for granted. This is the sip that's drinking back from you, blacking out your eyes. You need a little more suppression of your appetites. This is your honeymoon, in separate rooms, it's neither sweet nor bright. I made a word to give this state a name, this game a guess. I call it sluttering . It means as little as your little test. You are your worst revenge. Your very means, they have no ends. This is a story you won't tell the kids we'll never have. If you hear this song a hundred times it still won't be enough.

Should've Been The One

911 "Moving On"
My baby, should've been the one Last night I was so scared I couldn't close my eyes You still live in me Somehow I made it through the night Rescued by the break of day, once again I know someone's in your heart, it's pulling me apart But I guess I'm the one to blame (it's so hard) And it's so hard (so hard)holding back the tears now you've disappeared How I long to hold you near Chorus: Oh I should've been the one who's with you now Should been the one that's feeling proud, I failed you now Oh I should've read the signs in your eyes Should've had the sense to realise I've lost you now I see you laughing out loud, standing in a crowd The same crowd I used to know But it's too late now to change anything, I've lost everything Gotta learn to let you go Repeat Chorus I should've been the light in your eyes (should've been the light) Should've been the fire in your smile ( should've been the fire) I should've been your spirit and your guide I wonder do you think of me (do you think of me) Maybe you shed a tear for me (shed a tear for me) I relise I paid the price but nothing's gonna change the way I feel for you Oh I should've been the one who's with you now Should been the one that's feeling proud Girl, I failed you now Should've read the signs in your eyes Should've had the sense to realise I've lost you now I know I let you down baby, had to fool around Oh I should've been the one who's with you now Should been the one that's feeling proud, I failed you now I should've read the signs baby, should've relised Oh I should've read the signs in your eyes Should've had the sense to realise I've lost you now
