13 Find Those Eyes by aging wells
she was born hot in the weight of the summer
i was waiting here when they brought her home
should have realized a lot then momma
should have known better than to be alone

here sit i in the dead of night i pay the price but where will i
find those eyes

with the candle in her eye well you never can tell
it’s like two coins down that wishing well
cold of her lover and tired she’d grown
it’s hard to see the light so far from home far from home far from home

here sit i in the dead of night i look inside but where will i
find those eyes

she got away from you she got away from you

tell me a story about your life want me to reenact it
tell me a story about your life want me to reenact it
but you’re not gonna tell me no you’re not gonna tell me
till after we start to fight about it can’t figure it out is it a comeon
good intentions something missing baby

like a rapid in a river that must be shot like a saint to a sinner that can’t be bought
like the 3 a.m. that’s your best friend like the night that ain’t never gonna come again come again come again

here sit i in the dead of night i pay the price
but where will i find those eyes

well the days passed by like a sentence for a lie and the guitars
sang their song
whole life time trying just to get it right
a whole life time ain’t that long

in the mirror in the morning in the car ride in
in the key when he unlocked the door
in the moments when he closed his eyes and thought my god
i’m really growing old find those eyes.
