Maus Space

I've continually had a liking for the mystical, but it wasn't until I matured a little iota that I discovered John Maus!

I'm a man of many talents
But I got one thing left to do
I gotta get a blindfold and close my eyes
Before I get one look at you

Because I see love (see love)
In a special way
And I see you (see you)
So beautiful lady
You make my eyes go boom
And that tells me (tells me)
I need you soon

But I can't hear my eyes
They don't speak, they're just the spies
Said I can't hear my eyes
Cause when I see her, they slowly rise
Do it one more time

I want a lady as beautiful as a sunset on a strip
Light auburn hair and hips that don't care
Really makes me tick

And I see love (see love)
In a special way
And I see you (see you)
So beautiful lady
You make my eyes go boom
And that tells me (tells me)
I need you soon

But I can't hear my eyes
They don't speak, they're just the spies
Said I can't hear my eyes
Cause when I see her, they slowly rise
Do it one more time

Can't hear my eyes
They don't speak, they're just the spies
Said I can't hear my eyes
They don't speak, they're just the spies

Have you heard the version on Greatest Hits? i think it is even better than the one on before today. it's faster. And I didn't really care for it for a long time either.

He wrote this song when he was 8 years old. Wow! I did not know that.

I've always heard the first line in the chorus as:

"I can't hear my eyes/they don't speak, they just despise"

i originally thought the same thing, i think it sounds more like "they're just the spies" as the song progresses

I bought the Before Today CD to a special person and the lyrics in there were actually like

"And I'll see love (see love)
In a special way
And I'll see you (see you)
So beautiful lady"


I always thought it was just "I"... who knows.

There's actually 3 versions!

The single version, the one on Before Today, and Do It One More Time (Demo Version).
