  Through Eagles Eyes
 
Throughout the land,
And across the seas,
So many miles up in the skies.
I feel your love,
I hear your voice,
I can see your face through Eagles Eyes.
 
 
(refrain)
Through the eyes of an eagle,
I can see across the skies.
Through the eyes of an eagle,
I can see where my love lies.
You know I'll be home soon,
But until that time arrives,
I'll be watching over you,
Through Eagles Eyes.
 
 
 
When we are not together,
We both feel the hurt inside.
When we are again together,
We can see the other has cried.
All the pain is washed away,
With love and tender sighs.
And you know I've been watching you,
Through Eagles Eyes.
 
 
(refrain)
Through the eyes of an eagle,
I can see across the skies.
Through the eyes of an eagle,
I can see where my love lies.
You know I'll be home soon,
But until that time arrives,
I'll be watching over you,
Through Eagles Eyes.
 
 
 
Once more it's time to part,
And I know deep in my heart,
As this silver bird takes to the skies.
Wherever I am, wherever I go,
All I need is to look out that window,
And there before me I'll see you,
Through Eagles Eyes.
 
 
(refrain)
Through the eyes of an eagle,
I can see across the skies.
Through the eyes of an eagle,
I can see where my love lies.
You know I'll be home soon,
But until that time arrives,
I'll be watching over you,
Through Eagles Eyes.

LOOK AT ME

Look at me
And show you care
Just look at me
Let me know you're there
I need to see your eyes right now
I'm not asking you to stare
All I want, all I need
is for you to just look at me
Just look at me
Look at me

I came home from work and you were so excited
Your tenth reunion was here and you'd been invited
You'd waited all day and you wanted to know
If I'd accompany you, if I wanted to go
Well you know I've never been a partyin' man
When we'd go out with friends I do the best I can
But if this really means all that much to you
Then baby, I'd be happy to go with you
But while we're there there's something you gotta do
There's something important I'm gonna ask of you

Look at me
And show you care
Just look at me
Let me know you're there
I need to see your eyes right now
I'm not asking you to stare
All I want, all I need
is for you to just look at me
Just look at me
Look at me

Well the day of your reunion finally came 'round
We got all dressed up and took truck into town
One by one I was introduced to your former classmates
There was Andy & Billy & Sandy & Janice & Ronald & Kate
And this was just to name but a few
Of all your old friends that I never knew
Suddenly I began to feel lost and alone
I felt so out of place and wanted to go home
But just then, you suddenly remembered my request
From across the room you put my anxiety to rest
When you turned
And looked at me

You looked at me
And I knew you cared
You looked at me
And I knew you were there
You looked right into my eyes just then
And you put my mind at rest again
You did it with but a little glance
You managed to catch my stare by chance
All I ever wanted and all I would ever need
You gave me when you stopped and looked at me
You just looked at me
You looked at me

The Big Pay
 
 
 
I get up every mornin
To get the work out for the man
It may be dirty work
But I still do the best I can
 
Gotta get the money
Gotta make it while I can
Ain't thinkin bout unwritten rules
Coz big pays in my plans, The.
 
(chorus)
Big Pay
Big Pay
Big Pay
The Big Pay
 
 
When we cross the picket line
Might not go over well
There's people on the other side
But they can go to hell
 
We're eatin and were sleepin here
We're guzzlin lots of beer
My babys cryin come on home
But I can't even hear, For

(chorus)
Big Pay
Big Pay
Big Pay
The Big Pay
 

We got a cook makin baked beans
That'll give you lots a gas
And a boss man walkin round a sayin
That's a touch of class
 
People say we have no sense
For coming through the fence
But money talks and talk is cheap
So let me get some sleep, For.

(chorus)
Big Pay
Big Pay
Big Pay
The Big Pay
 
The days are gettin shorter
And the nights are getting long
I'm wishin I was home again
Back where I belong
 
I'm sweatin and I'm workin hard
And singin this here song
My wallets says I'm doin right
But my soul tells me I'm wrong
For wantin.

(chorus)
Big Pay
Big Pay
Big Pay
The Big Pay
 
I get up evry morin
An I rise up outta bed
All the pretty dreams I had
Are running from my head
 
I know one day I'll wake up
And realize just where I am
And on that day I'll tell myself
That I don't give a damn For..
 
 (chorus)
Big Pay
Big Pay
Big Pay
The Big Pay

Don't Look in the Mirror
 
 
If you don't want to see me cry
Or know just how I feel
Please keep looking straight ahead
Out your rain soaked windshield
I cannot find the words to say
That this love can never be
I don't know what to say to you.
But it's him you're with, not me.
 
(refrain)
Don't look in the mirror
If you don?t want to see me cry
Don't look in the mirror
'Coz my emotions never lie
I know that you belong to him
You've made that oh so clear
So please don't look in the mirror
I don't know how to hide these tears
Don't look in the mirror
Oooo-oo-oo-oo,
Don't look in the mirror
Just quietly say'   good bye.
 
Riding in your backseat
For just an hour or two
I?m watching ev'ry move you make
The way he touches you
You slowly place your hand in his
And that's when my heart drops
You look in the mirror and see my eyes
You know the crying never stops
 
(refrain)
 
Just this once I changed my seat
From the front one to the rear
I usually would be by your side
Our hearts were oh so near
I want so much to hold your hand
But we know that can't be done
Coz he is sitting right close by
And for now he is the one.
 
(refrain)
 
Well who knows maybe a day will come
When I will be the one
The one that you go home with
When that long drive is done
When we turn down that long driveway
And our home comes into sight
I'll be the one you lie with
As we make love all night
 
(refrain)
 
But until that day comes
I'll be waiting for you right here
With him sitting there next to you
And me sitting in the rear
While I'm here my tears will run
That?s something you don't want to see
But I don't know how to make them stop
So please don't look back at me.
 
(refrain)
So don't look in the mirror
If you don't want to see me cry
Please don't look in the mirror
My emotions never lie
Don't look in the mirror
oooo-oo-ooo-ooo.
Don't look in the mirror
Just quietly say'. Goodbye.
