Hide My Eyes
© 2008 Jason Paul Johnston

Trying to find a way out of town
but I can't see the end yet
I've been paying oh so long
but I'm still so deep in debt

I wish I could write a song
that makes me just forget
But every time one comes along
it just stirs up regret

Chorus:
So I’ll stick my head in the sand and I’ll try
Every time a wave comes my way I’ll cry
Turn my face from the space that I occupy
When the tide gets high I’ll hide my eyes

Every time I step your way
oh something makes me stop
Been searching for a key to you
left here fumbling at the lock

I’ve been trying to talk to you
but my words fall out in parts
Been looking for a way inside
that distant little heart
