about

The song that made me want to do an album in the first place ... the moment I heard this song blasting out of the big speakers at Desolation Sound, I knew I didn't want anyone calling the shots for me ever again. I'd spend the rest of my life working my ass off at a day job just so I could keep recording what I wanted. Put out my own CDs, whatever it took. Drive myself to exhaustion just to make music. If I manage to make an extra dollar, it's back in the studio I go. God made a machine ...

lyrics

Nice face - has it ever been to China
Sent a postcard and wanted to remind you
The view behind the wall is great
Through my eyes ..

Thought of you when I saw the Eiffel tower
Clouds had menaced promising a shower
A new world every seven days
Through my eyes ..

Nobody lies about being lonely
Scrap the notes - baby you just call me

Foreign country life is getting out of hand
In a language I don’t even understand
Every face looks so afraid
Through my eyes ...

Look around it’s anything to do you in
Big boys still take it on the chin
You build a life like working clay
Through my eyes ...

Nobody lies about being lonely
Scrap the notes baby you just call me
If the hour’s not too late
Here the hour’s never late
Through my eyes

Nobody lies about being lonely
Scrap the notes - baby you just call me
If the hour’s not too late
If the hour’s not too late ..

Nobody lies about being lonely
Scrap the notes baby you just call me
If the hour’s not too late
Here the hour’s never late
Through my eyes -

Whoa - oh - oh - oh …

Through my eyes -
