The Jackson 5 Doctor My Eyes Lyrics

THE ERROR IS NOT WITH THE LYRICS, BUT WITH THE ARTIST (BAND) TO WHICH THEY ARE ATTRIBUTED. Jackson Browne, not The Jackson 5, wrote and performed this song.

Doctor my eyes have seen the years
And the slow parade of fears
Without crying
Now I want to understand

I have done all that I could
To see the evil and the good
Without hiding
You must help me if you can

Doctor, my eyes (eyes, eyes)
Tell me what is wrong
Was I unwise
To leave them open for so long, yea

Cause I have...
Cause I have wandered through this world
As each moment has unfurled
I've been waiting to awaken from these dreams

People go just where the will
I never notice them until
I've got this feeling that it's later than it seems

Doctor, my eyes (eyes, eyes)
Tell me what you see
I hear their crys
Just saying "It's too late for me"


Doctor, my eyes (eyes, eyes)
Cannot see the sky
Is this the prize
For having learned how not to cry, oooooh yea!

Doctor my eyes
Doctor my eyes
