Nearsighted

Nearsighted

Rupert Holmes

If you take these glasses from my face
Think that you would find
I'm undeniably, certifiably just a shade of blind

I don't envy those of you with 20/20 vision
Who've seen the world for all its worth
With crystal clear precision

There's more to see than can be
Seen or said than what is heard
The day is brighter, softer, lighter
When it's slightly blurred

Nearsighted, it's another lovely day
Nearsighted, so I stumble on my way

I don't judge a friend or lover
By a first or second look
Nor a book just by its cover
I can't even see the book

Nearsighted, loving life is such a breeze
Nearsighted 'cause I see just what I please

And it pleases me to see you
I won't change my point of view
Nearsighted, nearsighted
Nearsighted, all I need to see is you

Though I'm slightly out of focus
I can see my dreams come true
Clear sighted, I'm nearsighted
Nearsighted, all I need to see is you, you
