Learning To See Lyrics

by Van Halen

Time after time we walk pass the window
And never see the ashes on the ground
Night after night watching the sky move
But never feel the earth spinning 'round

I didn't see you fallin', I couldn't hear you callin'
Born with eyes wide open, never learn to see
I never meant to hurt you, was right there cryin' with you
Why do we harm the only thing we want to be?

Trying to follow every footstep
I feel so lost along the way
Readin' the scripture straight from the gospel
Never understandin' what they say

Yeah, I didn't see you fallin', I never heard you callin'
I've got my eyes wide open but haven't learned to see, yeah
I never meant to hurt you, was right there cryin' with you
Why do we harm the only thing we want to be?

I just gotta be me
I just gotta be me, yeah

I didn't see you fallin', I never heard you callin'
Got my eyes wide open, never learn to see
I never meant to hurt you, was right there crying with you
We only cage the very thing we want to free

I just wanna be, I just wanna be
Gotta, gotta be, I just wanna be
I gotta be, I wanna be, I gotta, gotta
I gotta, gotta be me, I just wanna be
I, I wanna be me yeah, me yeah
