The Man With the Child in His Eyes - Kate Bush

I hear him
Before I go to sleep
And focus on the day
That's been.
I realize he's there
When I turn the light off
And turn over.

Nobody knows about my man.
They think he's lost on some horizon.
And suddenly I find myself listening
To a man I've never known before,
Telling me about the sea,
Oh his love is to eternity.

Ooh he's here again,
The man with the child in his eyes.
Ooh he's here again,
The man with the child in his eyes.

He's very understanding and he's so
Aware of all my situations.
When I stay up late
He's always with me
What I feel when I hesitate.
Oh I'm so worried about my love.
They say "no, no it won't last forever".
And here I am again my girl,
Wondering what on earth I am doing here.
Maybe he doesn't love me,
I just took a trip on my love for him.

Ooh he's here again,
The man with the child in his eyes.
Ooh he's here again,
The man with the child in his eyes.
