Naked To The Eye Submit Correct Lyrics

Submit Corrections Cancel

Been walking these streets
Been deciding what's true
Been hands in my pockets
Coat collar up, thinking 'bout you

I've been talking to myself
Giving fate the third degree
I've been eyes on the pavement
Admitting my part to strangers passing me

And I know it isn't fair
But nothing's ever been
Hey when you look at me baby
My God how I feel so good again

I don't know where I went wrong
But it isn't right to lie
Hey when you look at me baby
My heart's wide open, naked to the eye

Now some lovers are apart
But they're never far away
I can see her in your eyes
Hear her in your voice and I have to turn away

Oh what covet is to ache
Is what aching is to me
For the arms of a man who knows who I am
And where I need to be

And if I know what I know
Then the lonely can't pretend
When you look at me baby
My God how I feel so whole again

Is there heaven after all
Or just this empty space
That no amount of time
Nor comfort in it's hands
Can ever help me face

Which is worse is yet to come
Your rebuff or my resign
Hey when you look at me baby
I'm helpless as a child, naked to the eye

It's like a fever and a spell
Unbroken by a sigh
Oh when you look at me baby
I'm going nowhere just naked to the eye

Yeah when you look at me baby
Every thing's there, naked to the eye
Hey when you look at me baby
I haven't got a prayer, naked to the eye
