"Eye to Eye"

I walked into our house
it's filled with so many doubts
Your eyes felt so far away
with no reflection of me

I reached out for your hand
but you pretend not to see
We watched CNN on T.V.
to escape reality

I leave you every morning
and come home late at night
'Cuz we just don't see eye to eye
and I'm too tired to fight

I could run to freedom
but instead I walk the town
If I'm so free, tell me this
why am I still around?

(Instrumental Bridge)

I'm starving for your love
but lies kill my appetite
My eyes tear up like a pool
I'm done runnin' 'round like your fool

It's early when I get home
but it's too late to have a fight
I whispered bye in her ear
we've wasted all of these years


(Instrumental Bridge)


reminds me allot of Steely Dan--not a bad thing at all! good movement, good writing and playing.
