When His Eyes Stray

(unreleased song, 1983)

Lyrics by Tori Amos

Verse 1:

He eyes her down and
She's much too fast
You know he noticed her
just as planned
You're paranoid as you
drain your glass
If you get mad you lose
If you laugh he sees through
Hey, please pour me one more
make it straight 'cause
I'm not anymore, oh no

Chorus:

When his eyes stray that man
is driving me driving me
When his eyes stray that man
doesn't see I'm crying
Even when he's standing by me
Even with his arms around me
Deep inside I know he's
out of reach
When his eyes stray and he's gone
when his eyes stray woe
When his eyes stray and he's gone
when his eyes stray woe

Verse 2:

You eye her down to see
what she has
And why he noticed her
just as planned
You're paranoid as you
drain your glass
If you get mad you lose
If you laugh he sees through
Hey, please pour me one more
make it straight 'cause
I'm not anymore, oh no

Chorus:

When his eyes stray that man
is driving me driving me
When his eyes stray that man
doesn't see I'm crying
Even when he's standing by me
Even with his arms around me
Deep inside I know he's
out of reach
When his eyes stray and he's gone
when his eyes stray woe
When his eyes stray and he's gone
when his eyes stray woe

Verse 3:

Hey, please pour me one more
Make it straight 'cause I'm not anymore
Even when he's standing by me
Even with his arms around me
Deep inside I know he's out of reach
When his eyes stray that man
is driving me driving me
When his eyes stray and he's gone
when his eyes stray woe
When his eyes stray he's gone
when his eyes stray he's gone
and he's gone when his eyes stray

Chorus:

When his eyes stray that man
is driving me driving me
When his eyes stray that man
doesn't see I'm crying
Even when he's standing by me
Even with his arms around me
Deep inside I know he's
out of reach
When his eyes stray and he's gone
when his eyes stray woe
When his eyes stray and he's gone
when his eyes stray woe
