EYES I'M LOOKING THROUGH

Ain't a girl in this world, MmmmmHmmmm, can hold a candle to you.
If Brother Ray was here with me, even he would plainly see, all your goodness shining through.
If Michaelangelo and Beethoven, and Willy Shakespeare, pooled their talents and agreed,
To create their finest work of love, no doubt you'd be their masterpiece.

(CHORUS)
I know how you blush when I go on and on and on about you,
But I can only see perfection, when I gaze in your direction,
With the eyes I'm looking through,
With these eyes I'm looking through.

Remember Romeo, Marc Antony and let's not forget about Rhett.
If they'd met you, they woulda passed on Scarlet O, Cleo and Juliet.

(BRIDGE)
When you look in the mirror,
I wish you could see what I see.
To you, it's just a reflection,
But I see what lies beneath.


(CHORUS)
I know how you blush when I go on and on and on about you,
But I can only see perfection, when I gaze in your direction,
With the eyes I'm looking through,
But I can only see perfection, when I gaze in your direction,
With the eyes I'm looking through,
With these eyes I'm looking through.

Wow...I'm in Love! This is a mix of Boss Scaggs, Blood Sweat and Tears and Huey Lewis and the News. Rock has never sounded so Bluesy since the 70's 80's. It didn't lack any quality or content, instead showed how much more talent classic music offers when done well. I thought the singers vocals were stellar and just raspy enough to make me listen to the content. Bravo!

Very good song. Reminds me of Steely Dan in the 70's Love the sax!
