Roger Waters – Every Strangers Eyes



Rating: 4

Roger Waters – Every Strangers Eyes – The Pros and Cons of Hitch Hiking – 1984 Lyrics; Waitress: “Hello…you wanna cup of coffee?” Customers: “Heh, turn that fucking juke box down You want to turn down that juke box… loud in here” Waitress: “I’m sorry, would you like a cup of coffee? Ok you take cream and sugar?” In truck stops and hamburger joints In Cadillac limousines In the company of has-beens And bent-backs and sleeping forms On pavement steps In libraries and railway stations In books and banks In the pages of history In suicidal cavalry attacks I recognize Myself in every stranger’s eyes And now from where I stand Upon this hill I plundered from the pool I look around, I search the skies I shade my eyes, so nearly blind And I see signs of half remembered days I hear bells that chime in strange familiar ways I recognize The hope you kindle in your eyes It’s oh so easy now As we lie here in the dark Nothing interferes it’s obvious How to beat the tears That threaten to snuff out The spark of our love
