Eyes Without A Face . . . Billy Idol



"I'm all out of hope,

One more bad dream could bring a fall,

When I'm far from home,

Don't call me on the phone,

To tell me you're alone,

It's easy to deceive

It's easy to tease

But hard to get release"


Lyrics from the song


Billy Idol - Eyes Without A Face


Eyes Without A Face | Billy Idol





Art imitates life,
one of the things I love about
music and lyrics



Eyes without a face . . . a shadowy figure in a dream . . . devil or angel?


Human nature has so disappointed me . . . reactions to actions.

Shattered human grace leaves me feeling raw and exposed.

In my life I've disappointed others, but disappointed myself the most

But I'm not depressed since hope and faith are still alive within me.



Only disappointment in human nature remains

With the greatest evil of lies and deception

That resides in my heart and soul

Like an echo in a canyon that comes back to haunt me

Every time someone hurts me,

it becomes a little more difficult to trust again,

it hurts a little more since trust is already a major issue for me.

Pray for the ones who hand out lies and deceit

like sheep in wolves clothing . . .

for they the ones who are truly troubled

those who speak with forked tongues


and play sick and cruel jokes.

God knows who you are
I'm not the one to judge








Lyrics

I'm all out of hope

One more bad dream could bring a fall

When I'm far from home

Don't call me on the phone

To tell me you're alone

It's easy to deceive

It's easy to tease

But hard to get release



Les yeux sans visage eyes without a face

Les yeux sans visage eyes without a face

Les yeux sans visage eyes without a face

Got no human grace your eyes without a face.



I spend so much time

Believing all the lies

To keep the dream alive

Now it makes me sad

It makes me mad at truth

For loving what was you



Les yeux sans visage eyes without a face

Les yeux sans visage eyes without a face

Les yeux sans visage eyes without a face

Got no human grace your eyes without a face.



When you hear the music you make a dip

Into someone else's pocket then make a slip.

Steal a car and go to Las Vegas oh, the gigolo pool.



Hanging out by the state line,

Turning holy water into wine

Drinkin' it down, oh

I'm on a bus on a psychedelic trip

Reading murder books tryin' to stay hip.

I'm thinkin' of you you're out there so

Say your prayers.

Say your prayers.

Say your prayers.



Now I close my eyes

And I wonder why

I don't despise

Now all I can do

Is love what was once

So alive and new

But it's gone from your eyes

I'd better realize



Les yeux sans visage eyes without a face

Les yeux sans visage eyes without a face

Les yeux sans visage eyes without a face

Got no human grace your eyes without a face.

Such a human waste your eyes without a face

And now it's getting worse.
