A Clean Pair of Eyes
by David Gray

lyrics© BMG Rights Management US, LLC


Hear me God, I'm on the level
Mapping silence seeing things
Crying laughing like the devil
Before the might of all that's seen
I'll raise my head and wake to dream
with a clean pair of eyes.

Murdered gold and colours flashing
Time like blood like flowing hair
Faces merging airplanes crashing
Before the might of all that's true
I'll raise my head and wake to dream anew
With a clean pair of eyes.

A clean pair of eyes
Don't need no one to blame
Don't need no disguise
No sugar to sweet my brain
A clean pair of eyes.

Today I need no comentary
Today I do not need to speak
No explanation necessary

And before the light of all that's seen
I'll raise my head and dream again
With a clean pair of eyes

A clean pair of eyes don't need no right or wrong
Don't need no disguise
No sugar to fix my tongue
A clean pair of eyes.

Liquid air and flags that ripple
A tambourine of smoking suns
love that blinds us fear, that cripples

And before the might of all that's seen
I'll raise my head and wake to dream
And before the might of all that's true
I'll raise my head and dream anew
And before the might of all that's unnamed
I'll raise my head and dream again.

Dream again
Dream again

A clean pair of eyes would sure be an asset.
