I'm not going to talk about doubts and confusion
On a night when I can see with my eyes shut
I'm not going to talk about doubts and confusion
On a night when I can see with my eyes shut

I'm not going to talk about doubts and confusion
On a night when I can see with my eyes shut
I'm not going to talk about it, I'm not going to talk about it
I'm not going to talk about it, I'm not going to talk about it

I'd never been to Ayrshire, I hitched down one Saturday
Sixty miles to Kilmarnock to see Hibernian play
The day was bright and sunny but the game I won't relay
And there was no Kilmarnock Bunnet to make me want to stay

But I'm not going to talk about it
On a night when I can see with my eyes shut
No, I'm not going to talk about it
On a night when I can see with my eyes shut

When I started walking to Wishaw, my eyes obscured my vision
After five miles on my way, I began to act a lesson
When I started walking to Wishaw, my eyes obscured my vision
After five miles on my way, I began to act a lesson

And I'm not going to talk about it
On a night when I can see with my eyes shut
I've been sayin', I've been sayin'
On a night when I can see with my eyes shut

I walked through the country, I walked through the town
I held my head up and I didn't look down
I walked through the country, I walked through the town
I held my head up and I didn't look down

And I'm not going to talk about it
On a night when I can see with my eyes shut
Moonlit sky, moonlit sky
On a night when I can see with my eyes shut

Well, the question doesn't matter, the answer's always "Aye"
The best view of all is where the land meets the sky
The question doesn't matter, the answer's always "Aye"
The best view of all is where the land meets the sky

I'm not going to talk about it
On a night when I can see with my eyes shut
Here I go, here I go
Yeah, yeah, yeah

I'd never been to Ayrshire, I hitched down one Saturday
I went sixty miles to Kilmarnock to see Hibernian play
The day was bright and sunny but the game I won't relay
And there was no Kilmarnock Bunnet to make me stay

I'm not going to talk about it
On a night when I can see with my eyes shut
I've been sayin', I've been sayin'
Yeah, yeah, yeah, yes
