The Eye Of The Beholder

(Words and Music By Andy Hill)

Acting in this drama I call my life
I spoke too much to play the victim
But not enough to set things right
My bedroom window's open and the night is getting colder
Just another thing I missed I should've told her
About beauty in the eye of the beholder

I went to meet her as the snow fell where she'd once kissed me good-bye
I overheard her conversation just before she caught my eye
I learned more about her in a second than the whole previous July
When I told all my friends about my summer lover

Trapped here in this tragedy called life
I know too much to say I don't know
But not enough to lead the fight
I'm not afraid to bleed and the night is getting colder
It's just another thing I missed I would've told her
If it weren't for beauty in the eye of the beholder

I've tried through this conflict of emotions to be honest to the letter
As each broken chain I've left behind reveals another fetter
I can say truthfully now that I don't feel any better
I long now more than ever just to hold her

Cast here in this comedy called life
I've seen too much to claim naivete
My arguments don't sound right
Lady Midnight speaks my name and my senses tumble over
Like a flock of geese to an invisible controller
And to beauty in the eye of the beholder

I Can't kill this beast desire
I Can't make her leave my mind
If you touch the shore they speak about
Tell me what you find
Maybe I can use it myself next time around

The effect she had on me is still something of a dream
I hadn't felt my heart pound for one held in such esteem
I should know things are rarely good or bad as at first they seem
Now I feel that familiar weight upon my shoulder

Flung back into this fantasy called life
I've done too much to reclaim my innocence
From the taunting fiery night
All these roads lead inward and the night is almost over...
Still I long now more than ever just to hold her
But that's just beauty in the eye of the beholder
Of the beholder
