Track Name: Crocodile Eyes
Crocodile eyes

Close your eyes and don’t let the sunlight in
It might make you think more clearly
And change your disguise
You dragged us down into darkness
Into your swirling world
With just enough air to breathe
So we could survive

My life flashes by in a memory
My thoughts are frozen in time
Still you say I’m too young to remember
Your crocodile eyes
I’m drowning in this river of tears
There’s no hope but I’ll still hold on
I’ll sink or surrender

Now that you’ve closed that door
We’ll never know for sure
If it’s your cold-blooded silence or fear we despise
Why does this darkness surround you?
Where is the light that you hide?
It’s only the truth that can save you
Never the lies

Still my life flashes by right in front of me
And my thoughts are frozen in time
Still I hear you say I’m too young to remember
Your crocodile eyes
I’m drowning in this river of tears
There’s no hope but I’ll still hold on
I’ll sink or surrender
Crocodile lies
I still won’t swim, but I’m treading water
As I think of the choices you gave
Sink or surrender

Close your eyes and don’t let the sunlight in
It might make you think more clearly
And change your disguise
You dragged us down into darkness
Into your swirling world
You fed us on half the truth to keep us alive
Track Name: When I look into your eyes
When I look into your eyes (Stewart)

Show me the heavens, roll back the sky
Bring down all the angels to guide me
‘cause I need direction through these uncharted seas I sail alone
In the sleepless hours of storm

I look into your eyes
The universes explodes
and it seems our two worlds are one
When I look into your eyes
I see stars collide
And the light from the sky falls down

I sail your ocean, my trusted sea
Let your waves crash upon my shore
I have felt the ebb and flow and the rise and the fall of your tide
So now I always surrender to the feeling that I have inside

Everytime I look into your eyes
The universes explodes
and it seems our two worlds are one
When I look into your eyes
I see stars collide
And the light from the sky falls down

I shield my eyes from this haze – as the evening falls
Sun-struck gold chasing these shadows - as the evening falls

I look into your eyes
The universes explodes
and it seems our two worlds are one
When I look into your eyes
I see stars collide
And the light from the sky falls down

The universe explodes
And stars collide
Light falls down when I look into your eyes

I look into your eyes
I look into your eyes
I look into your eyes
