Angel Eyes
written by John Hiatt / Fred Koller

Girl, youíre looking fine tonight
And every fellaís got you in his sights
What youíre doing with a clown like me
Is surely one of lifeís little mysteries

So tonight Iíll ask the stars above
How did I ever win your love?
What did I do, what did I say
To turn your angel eyes my way?

Well Iím the guy who never learned to dance
I never even got one second glance
Across the crowded room, that was close enough
I could look, but I could never touch


Donít anybody wake me if this is a dream
ícause she is the best thing thatís ever happened to me
All you fellas you can but look all you like
But this girl you see, sheís leaving with me tonight

And thereís just one more thing I need to know
If this is love then why does it scare me so
Must be something only you can see
But girl, I feel it when you look at me


What did I do, what did I say
To turn your angel eyes my way?
