The Kid In My Eyes

1997

Lyrics

When I was a young boy,
I didn't waste no time
It all seemed so easy, I just lived my mind
I did just what I had to do
What I felt that was right

But then came the real world, I had to pay
For being artless, for the way I behaved
It made me weigh all my thoughts
It taught me how to be uptight

But I just refuse to put up a fight
With the one and only purity
The kid in my eyes

Well I don't think twice
I don't want to leave, leave him behind
And I close my eyes
'Cause I just can't live
In a world made of lies

But there was a moment, I lost the faith
Started to live by the rules they have made
I was thinking all my life away
Didn't know what was right

Life became so stupid, so senseless and grey
Walking on a minefield
Heading the wrong way
Ooh everything I did felt wrong
It was all a big mistake

So I made myself a promise in time
I will never turn my back against
The kid in my eyes

Well I don't think twice
I don't want to leave, leave him behind
And I close my eyes
'Cause I just can't live
In a world made of lies

(Interlude)

Well I don't think twice
I don't want to leave, leave him behind
And I close my eyes
'Cause I just can't live
In a world made of lies

Well I don't think twice
I don't want to leave, leave him behind
And I close my eyes
'Cause I just can't live
In a world made of lies, made of lies

Made of lies, made of lies
Made of lies, made of lies
