Over your shoulder, please don't mind me
if my eyes have fallen onto your magazine.
For I've been watching, and wondering
why your face is changing with every line you read.

For all those lines and circles, to me a mystery.
Eve pull down the apple, and give a taste to me.
If she would it would be wonderful.

But my pride is in the way.
I cannot read to save my life, I'm so ashamed to say.
I live in silence, afraid to speak
of my life in darkness because I cannot read.

For all those lines and circles, to me a mystery.
Eve pull down the apple and give a taste to me.
If she could it would be wonderful.

Then I wouldn't need someone else's eyes
to see what's in front of me.
No one guiding me.

It makes me humble, to be so green
at what every kid can do when he learns A to Z.

But all those lines and circles, just frighten me
and I fear that I'll be trampled if you don't reach for me.
Before I run I'll have to take a fall.

And when pick myself up so slowly
I'll devour
every one of those books in the tower
of Knowledge.

@SONG: Don't Talk

                D             F#m              D           F#m
       	        Don't talk,   I will listen.   Don't talk, you keep your
                       G                    D              Em        
	distance  for  I'd rather hear some truth tonight  than  entertain
        Dadd9       G                  D                 Em                
	your lies,  so take you poison silently.  Let me be.  Let me close
	my eyes.   Don't talk,  I'll beleive it.  Don't talk, listen to me
	instead, I know that if you think of it, both long enough and hard
	the drink you drown your troubles in is the trouble you're in now.
                Em             A          Em                    A    
	        Talk talk talk about it,  if you talk as if you care but
        Em                A              D             G     Em               
	when your talk is over tilt that bottle in the air,  tossing  back
	more than your share.   Don't talk,  I can guess it.   Don't talk,
	well now your restless and you need somewhere to put the blame for
	how you feel inside.   You'll look for a close and easy mark  and
	you'll see me as fair game.

       		Talk  talk talk about it,  talk as if you care but  when
	your  talk is over tilt that bottle in the air tossing back  more
	than your share.   You talk talk talk about it, you talk as if you
	care.   I'm  marking every word and can tell this time  for  sure,
	your talk is the finest I have heard.  So don't talk, let me go on

	dreaming.   How  your eyes they glow so feircely I can  tell  your
	inspired by the name you chose for me.  Now what was it?  O, never
	mind  it.   We  will talk talk talk about this when your  head  is
	clear.   I'll discuss this in the morning,  but until then you may
	talk but I won't hear.
