Date: Sun, 23 Jul 1995 11:06:17 -0700 Subject: Beautiful South - 'Should've Kept My Eyes Shut' Should've Kept My Eyes Shut by Paul Heaton and David Rotheray D Bm D Bm D Bm I should've kept my eyes shut D Bm But I had to go and peep D Bm But when you saw what I saw Em A Bm A Well, it's hard just to roll back to sleep I would've kept me eyes shut But I thought I heard you scream And I've a penchant for violence You don't seem to find in a dream G D The scene a little clearer G D My father with a rope G D And in the cage, centre-stage Bm A It's mother who's destined to choke Em A And she choke and we choke D G On the words that we wish we'd not spoke Em A Just when you felt you had someone to trust D Db G A Up comes the man with a dagger and cloak I should've read the novels Believed every word But the stories they wrote Were so different to ones that I'd heard I should've kept my eyes shut My mouth should've closed But the mixture of vomit and blood Just crept up through my nose It became a little clearer As soon as I awoke My father stands with rope in hand A screaming mother kneels in hope And she hope and we hope That the words that she said won't provoke A smile is removed and a petal is crushed What once was a laugh has turned into a joke You should've kept your mouth shut Lyrics (C) 1990 Go!
