Lyrics:
Can't You See The World Through My Eyes

Spoken: I can't sleep at night anymore. I'm just tossing and turning all the time. And I keep waiting for the phone to ring; I just keep hoping you'll call. But you never do.

CHORUS:
When you see my face
Don't you think the smile seems out of place, my tears erased
Can't you see the world through my eyes

Here it comes, here you come again
Why must I talk, why must I laugh, this time must I pretend
Well I know your thoughts, your moves, yes...I know your every look...
Was my smile all that you mistook?

CHORUS

Stop and think, stop and think of me
How can I sleep, how can I live with my heart, who's got custody
I wake at night, I wake with fright, I wake with no one home
Yes I wonder, am I really all alone

CHORUS

I wake at night, I wake with fright, I wake with no one home
Yes I wonder, am I really all alone

CHORUS

Won't you stop and look
Look at me, a broken man
Can't ya see the world through my eyes
Can't ya see the world
Looking through my eyes, no the sun don't shine
Can't ya see the world through my eyes
Must I stumble blind, must I stumble blind
I can't see nothing without you, your love and you
Can't ya see the world through my eyes
