Toto – Modern Eyes lyrics

She know you bad
You don't sing songs of love
She treats you right, she fits you like a well worn glove
You know who's of the heart, her notions of societies
You belong to no one just like Alcibiades

Modern eyes
Modern eyes, to see what you want to see
Modern eyes
Modern eyes, she'll paint you with the modern eyes

What you look for in people is not hard to recognize
Black man, white man, short man
They're all the same in size
You breath the air, you feel the sea and the sand and the skies
When nighttime comes you blind men with modern eyes

(Repeat chorus)

She'll paint you with the hupskin on
She'll paint you with the fire in your eyes
She'll paint you with the modern eyes

(Repeat chorus)
