Bette MidlerMy Mother's Eyes

"I think I'll sing you a little ballad It's a new one. I just learnt it. oh, I hope you like it." Got my mother's eyes and my father's hair Does anybody really care? It's gettin' cold out here Well, I keep walkin' with my head held high With my head to the sky With my mother's eyes And my mother's eyes are with me In the darkness that's been paid for I'm just a nameless stranger, don't know why Have I seen all that I could? Have I seen more than I should With my mother's eyes? And my mother's eyes are with me In the chilly winds of autumn If I ain't here by winter, she'll know why I've seen all that I dare I've seen more than my share Forgive me if I stare with my mother's eyes © 2017
