  • Now I'm done playing with fools
    And I've paid all my childhood dues
    I find the mountain much steeper to climb
    Am I just one of the crowd?

    I decided a few days ago
    There's no room. Room for me in this show
    I changed my make-up completely this time
    Now I'm not one... one of the crowd

    So good-bye. Good-bye blind eyes
    I'm gonna find me a cat's eye
    Good-bye. Good-bye blind eyes
    I know what I want to see
    So good-bye. Good-bye blind eyes
    I'm gonna find me a cat's eye
    Good-bye. Good-bye blind eyes
    I know what I want to be

    So good-bye. Good-bye blind eyes
    I'm gonna find me a cat's eye
    Good-bye. Good-bye blind eyes
    I know what I want to see
    So good-bye. Good-bye blind eyes
    I'm gonna find me a cat's eye
    Good-bye. Good-bye blind eyes
    I know what I want to be

    Now I'm done playing the fool
    And I've paid all my childhood dues
    I find the mountain much steeper to climb
    Now I'm not one... one of the crowd

    So good-bye. Good-bye blind eyes
    I'm gonna find me a cat's eye
    Good-bye. Good-bye blind eyes
    I know what I want to see
    So good-bye. Good-bye blind eyes
    I'm gonna find me a cat's eye
    Good-bye. Good-bye blind eyes
    I know what I want to be Lyrics licensed and provided by LyricFind

  • Ricky Sztajer from Newport Richey FloridaThis song was one of the best I've ever heard. It's really deep, in which Suzi was trying to tell the world what she has gone through and how she to climb her way up in a man's rock n roll world.. let's face it she was good. And men don't think of it to kindly to be beaten or upstaged by a female.. im glad she got her childhood dues paid, meaning she grew up. I was born in Detroit too. So that alone makes me wanna root for Suzi all the way.. rock on Suzi.. love ya. Hug ricky
  • Ricky Sztajer from FloridaI think cats size was a powerful message on how it all started out for Suzi. Even though I liked devil's gates drive as well but Suzi is a performer with many hidden talents. She can rock, sing the blues, go pop rock, hard rock, and she's good at it!! The one thing I'm extremely proud of is a fellow Detroiter became famous and found her itch.. god bless u Suzi. We may never meet but yr music is in my soul.. ty Suzi. Thanks for the memories
  • Gary from Canadaanother great song by the queen of rock.
  • Joel from Vallejo, CaVery nice song and she has a pretty voice.
