Back to Lover's Eyes lyrics

Lover's Eyes (Live from Bonnaroo 2011)

Love was kind, for a time
Now just aches, and it makes me blind
This mirrors holds, my eyes too bright
That I can't see the others in my life
Were we too young, heads too strong
To bare the weight of these lover's eyes?
Cos I feel numb beneath your tongue
beneath the curse of these lover's eyes.

I do not ask the price I paid for I must live with my quiet rage
Tame the ghosts in my head that run wild and wish me dead
Should you shake my ash to the wind
Lord, forget all of my sins
Or let me die where I lie 'neath the curse of my lover's eyes

Cos there's no drink or drug I've tried
To rid the curse of these lover's eyes
And I feel numb beneath your tongue
Your strength just makes me feel less strong

But do not ask the price I paid I must live with my quiet rage
Tame the ghosts in my head that run wild and wish me dead
Should you shake my ash to the wind
Lord, forget all of my sins
Or let me die where I lie 'neath the curse of my lover's eyes

I'll walk slow I'll walk slow
Take my hand, help me on my way.
And I'll walk slow, I'll walk slow
Take my hand, help me on my way.

And I'll walk slow, I'll walk slow
Take my hand, I'll be on my way.
And I'll walk slow, I'll walk slow
Take my hand, help me on my way.

Aaaahhhh ahhhhh ahhhhhhhh.

Cuz I'll walk slow, I'll walk slow
Take my hand, help me on my way
