lyrics

Weary eyes
Weary eyes
How can you see with those eyes
Everytime you look up
You’re so down

It's no surprise
No surprise
You’re lost all the time
Following around
Those old weary eyes

They don’t fit your age
Or your point of view
There used to be colors
And now there’s just blue

They’ve seen way too much
Probably more than they should
But don’t shut em tight
Cause you’ll miss all the good

Weary eyes
Weary eyes
How can you see with those eyes
Everytime you look up
You’re so down

It's no surprise
No surprise
You’re lost all the time
Following around
Those old weary eyes

They always take you
Where you never want to be
You end up all stuck
Like a wet magazine
Trying to stay dry
Seems to take all your work
But when the water is high
At least you won’t die of thirst

Weary eyes
Weary eyes
How can you see with those eyes
Everytime you look up
You’re so down

It's no surprise
No surprise
You’re lost all the time
Following around
Those old weary eyes
Following around
