My Eyes

Album: Cleopatra (2016)
  • Oh, the devil's inside
    You opened the door
    You gave him a ride
    Too young to know, too old to admit
    That you couldn't see how it ends

    What did you do to my eyes
    What did you sing to that lonely child
    Promised it all but you lied
    You better slow down baby soon
    It's all or nothing to you

    The glow of Hollywood signs
    They sold you a bridge
    They fed you the lines
    You always confused your servants for friends
    But you couldn't see how it ends
    It's all or nothing to you

    What did you do to my eyes
    What did you say to my only child
    Promised your love but you lied
    You better slow down baby soon
    It's all or nothing to you

    What did you do to my eyes
    What did you sing to that lonely child
    Promised it all but you lied
    You better slow down baby soon Writer/s: JEREMY FRAITES, WESLEY SCHULTZ, NEYLA PEKAREK
