Starsailor — Alcoholic lyrics

Don't you know you've got your daddy's eyes?
Your daddy was an alcoholic
But your mother kept it all inside

I found another one
And she threw it all away
I was looking for another you
I was looking for another you
When I looked round, you were gone

Stand by my side
Stand by my side
And the pipe dream is yours now
And the singer won't get in our way

(Break)
Don't you know you've got your daddy's eyes?

But your mother kept it all inside
Your daddy was an alcoholic
She threw it all away

And I found another one
I was looking for another you
When I looked around you were gone
Stand by my side
I was looking for another you

And the pipe dream is yours now
Stand by my side

And the singer won't get in our way
Daddy was an alcoholic
Don't you know you've got your daddy's eyes?
But your mother kept it all inside
She threw it all away

I was looking for another chance
To see your blue eyed problem
