ANGEL EYES (Steven Van Zandt)

Little Steven And The Disciples Of Soul's album version


Come on baby, yeah!
Come on baby
Come on now baby, yeah yeah yeah

She sits by her window, I watch her there
She makes me coffee, she combs her hair
Her eyes are shining, she's gone I know
She's on a stage in a palace so long ago
Ain't it a shame, money can't buy what she sees
She's got the heart of a child, bless my soul
Precious as diamonds, silver and gold

When I look into your angel eyes
You got me baby, I realize
I ain't never gonna make you cry
Ooh you angel eyes

She dances in shadow, bleeds in tears
She turns into animals, she disappears
Surrounded by mirrors while the spirits watch
They look now baby but they can't touch
The pain is intoxicating if the music is loud enough
I'd buy her jewelry, I'd buy her a ring
I'd buy her the world but it don't mean a thing

When I look into your angel eyes
You got me baby, I realize
I ain't never gonna make you cry
Ooh you angel eyes

Yeah, now baby
Ah ah ah, whoa whoa yeah
Ah ah alright
Oh yeah

Oh ain't it a shame, up 'till now she's had to dream alone
She really belongs in another time
But for a while she's mine all mine

When I look into your angel eyes
You got me baby, I realize
I ain't never gonna make you cry
Ooh you angel eyes
Ooh you angel eyes
Ooh you angel eyes

Yeah
Ah ah ah ah
Ohhh yeahhh
Oh baby
Oh baby oh yeah
Come on now
Ohhh yeah yeah yeah
