Nietzche's Eyes Lyrics

by Paula Cole

How many times did
I have to hear you say to me
Self obsessed artist
Center of your universe
Well I believed your every word
And I believed you were my god

Chorus:
Nietzche's eyes
Nietzche's kind
Failed in flight to us
And all my love

Grandmother
Mother
And now I see it in myself
I take on the water
Until the damn threatens to break
I became a little doll
My voice became too small

Chorus

I'm shaken
I'm shaken
I'm getting down this fantasy
And I'm shaken
I'm shaken
I'm getting down this
Getting down this
You were not my superman
I didn't know
Just how I felt
All my love
I'm shaken
I'm
I'm getting down this
You were not my superman

I wasn't honest
I tried to philosophize
Only too late did
I see I wore nietzche's eyes
Now that I step back to see
I haven't been me
And all my love

Chorus

I'm shaken
I'm shaken
I'm getting down this fantasy
And I'm shaken
I'm shaken
I'm getting down this
Getting down this (9 times)
