1. Doctor My Eyes

Composer: Jackson Browne


Doctor my eyes have seen the years
And the slow parade of fears
Without crying now I want to understand.
I have done all that I could to see the evil and the good
Without hiding, you must help me if you can.

Doctor my eyes…tell me what is wrong
Was I unwise… to leave them opened for so long?

Cause I have wandered through this world
As each moment has unfurled
I’ve been waiting to awaken from these dreams
People go just where they will,
I never noticed them until I got this feeling
That it’s later than it seems.

Doctor my eyes… tell me what you see
I hear their cries…just say if it’s too late for me.

Doctor my eyes…cannot see the sky
Is this the price… for having learned how not to cry?
