Replacements – They're Blind lyrics

The demands made upon you
Are hard to live up to
It's futile to try and deny
And the things you hold dearly
Are scoffed at and yearly
Judged once and then left aside

'Cause they're blind
They hold you too close to the light
And I see what they only might if they'd learn
But they're letting you burn 'cause they're blind

To the brown-eyed beholder
See the chip on your shoulder
That fools everyone to believe
That you're so hard to talk to
And so easy to [read] through
Yet nobody looks past your sleeve, yeah

'Cause they're blind
They hold you too close to the light
And I see what they only might if they learn
But they're letting you burn 'cause they're blind

They only like what they can see
An' what they can't, they just can't agree
If you run to me, run, run
Only like the day with her
Only like a date with her
Then you'll run back
Then you'll run back blind

'Cause they're blind
They hold you too close to the light
And I see what they only might if they'd learn
But they're letting you burn 'cause they're blind

An old man said to me
Go home and take it easy
And run to me, run, run
Only like a date with her
Only one more day with her
Then I'll run back
Then we'll run back blind
They hold you too close to the light
And I see what they only might if they learn
But they're letting us burn
'Cause they're blind
