From the recording THE JOURNAL OF FORGOTTEN MEMORIES (2016)
Hey pretty eyes
Finished March 2014
Lyrics and Music: JBJ
Hey, pretty eyes.
I saw you on the street with a man and a kid.
I thought I understood, yes I thought that I did.
One quick glance in your direction, “don’t stand a chance” was my impression.
Maybe, maybe, maybe I won’t take you home tonight.
Hey, pretty eyes. I said hey, pretty eyes.
A lady arrived, you gave the kid to his mother,
Gave me a smile and said “the man is my brother”
Then maybe, maybe, maybe I could take you home tonight.
Shaking in the cold, cold night.
We’ve been shaking in the cold, cold night.
Two strangers walk on a moonlit river,
Frozen hard from the chill of winter.
It’s the third time that they say goodbye,
Maybe it’s time, you know… that they gave it a try.
I said maybe, maybe, maybe I could take you home tonight.
