Eyepatch

I’ve one eye for darkness and one for the light
There’s one for below and one up where it’s bright
I’ve singular vision but excellent sight
I see you in sunshine, I’ll see you tonight.
I’ve an eye for the sails and the winds and the sun
And one for belowdecks, the treasure, and guns
I’ve bad depth perception with only this one
But I see every thread in each web that is spun
c:
Aye, aye aye aye, aye aye aye, my eyepatch
My eyewear’s corrective
One eye’s protective
behind my eyepatch
Half introspective,
I’ve lost perspective
behind my eyepatch
Aye, aye aye aye, aye aye aye, my eyepatch.

I’ve an eye to your mind as it lights your green eyes
And an eye to your heart as a coveted prize
My third eye can see you right down to the thighs
Each dark and light detail is visualized
I’ve one eye I’ve hidden and one more eye yet
I see so much more than your mere silhouette
I see you’re a blonde, but there’s part that’s brunette-
I see your dry wit and I see where you’re wet
GUITAR

I’ve one eye that’s ever so grateful we met
The one eye that’s hidden is racked with regret
I’ve one eye that sees it was always a dream
And one eye that thinks that things are as they seem
I’ve one eye that’s blackened by what lies below
And one eye delighted for light that you show
I’ve one eye for darkness and one for the light
There’s one for below and one up where it’s bright
c.
