Level 42 — I Want Eyes lyrics

It's late I know but I can't sleep
Peace of mind is hard to keep
I saw it on the news today
A thousand lives just blown away

I want eyes
I want eyes

Another page in history
But the why is still a mystery
Won't you come so we can talk this through
Do you need me now like I need you

I want eyes
I want eyes

On the beach lies a boy
Thrown away like a toy
In the field lies a man
Left behind, he was calling, calling
No one saw him die

Sitting there you're telling me
That everything is meant to be
But when I say I can't go on
I know I'm not the only one
I just can't live on planet hope
And watch the world go up in smoke
I don't know how to face the facts
When I see a child respond to impact

I want eyes
I want eyes
I want eyes
I want eyes

So I wake every night
With the same dream in mind
In a field there's a man
Left behind, he was calling, calling
No one saw me cry

Call
