Dark Eye

Dark Eye

I’ve found a way to see in the dark
To keep my ever changing path
To hide from headlights making me blind
From those who’s road is clearer than mine
Just close one eye in the moment of glare
and you’ll save one eye to see and one eye to spare
Till they pass you by
Then when i need to guide my feet i’ll open my dark eye
Then when i need to guide my feet i’ll open my dark eye

I’ve found a way to weather a lie
To sift the sand that leaves your tongue dry
Refuse to buy the sorrow we sell
as We gather round to drink from the well
Just close one eye and keep it’s canvas clear
When you make your mind up under a mantle of fear
And the spring is dry
But when i hear and the water run clear i’ll open my dark eye
But when i hear and the water run clear i’ll open my dark eye

Wearing my cynical gaze
to see half as clear as the day
but no longer judging the distance to go
it’s a compromise, each to their own
I’ll make this journey my home

I’ve found a way to shelter my heart
From the pride that holds two lovers apart
To hide from history tainting my view
To cast aside and behold her anew
If i’m to keep an open mind
must i journey open eyed or be blissfully blind?
I just can’t decide
But when i look in the face of my love I’ll open my dark eye
But when i look in the face of my love I’ll open my dark eye
