Song Description

A beautiful haunting ballad played sensitively by the quartet featured on Leonie's Debut Album Sweet Jazz

Story Behind the Song

This song is the first song from Leonie's Debut Album 'Sweet Jazz" and is the favourite of Producer/Drummer John Morrison. John felt it would draw the listener in to the Album through the subtlties of the vocals and shows Leonie's strength, her ballads, off to her best advantage.


Try to think that love's not around,
But It's uncomfortably near,
My old heart ain't gaining no ground,
Because my angel eyes ain't here.

Angel eyes, that old devil sent,
They glow unbearably bright,
Might I say that my love's misspent,
Misspent with Angel eyes tonight.

So drink up all you people,
Order anything you see,
Have fun all you happy people,
The drinks and the laughs are on me.

Pardon me but I gotta run,
The facts uncommonly clear,
Gotta find who's now number one,
And why my Angel eyes ain't hear.

S'cuse me while I disappear
