The Left Eye

THE LEFT EYE - Written by Carroll Bryant 


Just how far can a soul submit to another heart?
Just how long will jealousy take to break it apart?

If we can't believe in each other 
And we can't trust in our lover
Then there's nothing left for us to be 

Just how dark is the August sky when the stars burn out?
Just how sad is the happiest clown if he can't roustabout?

If we can't believe in a meaning 
Then maybe we're better off dreaming 
For someone to come along and set us all free

They say that god lives in the left eye
And so I commit all of my sins from the right eye 
But late at night when I'm all alone 
I look for you through this telescope 
Close my mind and fall in love

Just how deep do emotions run when the time is right?
Just how fast does a comet fly across the dead of the night?

If we can't kiss without poison 
Then where in the hell are we going?
And could someone please, tell me why? 

They say that god lives in the left eye
And so I tell all of my lies from the right eye 
But late at night in the heart of my fire
I look for you through this burning desire
Close my mind and fall in love

Will you walk with me into the valley of the shadow of doubt? 
Will you talk to me on the way in and again on the way out?

And could you tell me what we're all about?

Just how far can a soul submit to another heart?
Just how long will jealousy take to break it apart?

If we can't believe in each other 
And we can't trust in our lover
Then there's nothing left for us to be

They say that god lives in the left eye
And so I commit all of my sins from the right eye 
But late at night when I'm all alone 
I look for you on the telephone 
Close my mind and fall in love
I fall in love
Baby, I just fall in love with you
