Listen now and let me speak
I will be the dog at your feet
Come along when you call
Be the little bird in your straw and sing you a song
I'll be there to take the fall
Though you tread upon me for no reason at all

But just when you think you've left me blind
Well, I'll need to, yeah
I will keep you in the corner of my eye
The corner of my eye

I will never leave your side
Though you call me your number one zero
You never mind
I'll be your king, I'll be your pawn
I will build a pedestal and put you upon it, baby

Just when you think you've left me blind
I will be creeping right up behind
'Cause maybe if I need to
I will keep you in the corner of my eye

Down on the street, over your night
Out of your sleep, out of your sight
If I need to, yeah, if I need to

Out of your mouth, in every word
Down in your ego, one thing is sure
I will keep you, I will keep you

Oh, just when you think you've left me blind
I will be creeping right up behind
'Cause baby, if I need to
Lord, I will keep you in the corner of my eye
Corner of my eye

I will be the bird in your straw
But you won't get far
I will keep you in the corner of my eye
