Cleareyed

“Cleareyed”
written by Glen Phillips and Dan Wilson
ever since I was a kid
I’ve been clear eyed, clear eyed
can’t forget, but I’d forgive
did you notice, are you alright?

and on the edge, a memory
the shapes, they take form and call to me

some things I wish I’d never seen and never been
but so it is, so it is
if all I know is what I see
then certainty is what you are to me

clear eyed
clear eyed

someone came and changed the words
left me tongue tied, tongue tied
it’s not a sky without a cloud
there is no blue sky, blue sky

beyond the past, beyond the fear
the simple act of being here

some things I wish I’d never seen and never been
but so it is, so it is
if all I know is what I see
the certainty is what you are to me

clear eyed
clear eyed
clear eyed
clear eyed

blind me with love, make me blind
find me with love, make me blind

cause I’ve seen too much, too much of this life
I’ve seen too much, too much of this life
I’ve seen too much, too much of this life
I’ve seen too much, too much of this life

now I only see you
only see you…

clear eyed
clear eyed
clear eyed
