Pirate Eyes

Simple and no one, nothing to prove

Fate came knocking, nothing to lose

Criminal temptress, the Devil inside

Distorted a kind young face, with pirate eyes

 

Clever young outlaw, learning the game

So good, so bad, respect him, remember the name

The king of the bad guys, nothing to hide

Watching his ship come in, through pirate eyes

 

Through pirate eyes

The world looks like a better place, he’s happy to stay

Through pirate eyes

Every day is a better day

Now he has all the happiness, money can buy

He’s watching his western world, through pirate eyes

 

What’s in a legend, or hearing it grow

Some say a picture’s a thing to have, what do they know?

There’s too many heart aches, too many good-byes

There’s too many things to see, through pirate eyes

 

Through pirate eyes

The world looks like a better place, he’s happy to stay

Through pirate eyes

Every day is a better day

Now he has all the happiness, money can buy

He’s watching his western world, through pirate eyes

 

Sometimes he feels a little romantic

He still remembers every time he tried

All charms of a prince will never hide who he is

After all he’s just a villain inside

 

The Devil is calling, he’s heard it before

This time he throws back his head and laughs, he wonders what for

He’s tired of fighting, living a lie

Watching his sun go down, through pirate eyes

 

Through pirate eyes

The world looked like a better place, he’s glad he could stay

Through pirate eyes

Every day was a better day

He never found the happiness, money can’t buy

He’s watching his ship go down

His world has crumbled now

He’s watching his sun go down, through pirate eyes

He’s watching his sun go down, through pirate eyes
