Song Lyrics #15 - Eyes Without A Face

by - September 08, 2019


This week I'm looking at Eyes Without A Face by Billy Idol. This song is a trip and in what seems to be a pattern lately I have no idea what the lyrics are trying to say! Must be an eighties thing. Although if I had to guess, especially from the early going, it seems to be about love lost or a bitter break up? But it's got a nice groove and it does a lot of interesting things, with the French lyrcis and the mid- song guitar, and just the whole vibe. One of my favorite songs. It has a bit of a downbeat ending, too. 

Also, the video. Wow. I mean yeah it's an eighties thing, but still. The back up dancers ass slapping- I mean, whaat?? Best just to go with it. :)      

So what do you think?   


Lyrics

I'm all out of hope 
One more bad dream could bring a fall 
When I'm far from home
Don't call  me on the phone 
To tell me you're alone
It's easy to deceive 
It's easy to tease 
But hard to get release 

Les yeux sans visage 
Eyes without a face
Les yeux sans visage
Eyes without a face 
Les yeux sans visage  
Eyes without a face, got no human grace your eyes without a face 

I spend so much time 
Believing all the lies 
To keep the dream alive 
Now it makes me sad 
It makes me mad at truth 
For loving what was you 

Les yeux sans visage
Eyes without a face
Les yeux sans visage 
Eyes without a face 
Les yeux sans visage 
Eyes without a face , got no human grace your eyes without a face 

When you hear the music you make a dip 
Into someone else's pocket then make a slip 
Steal a car and go to Las Vegas, oh the gigolo pool 
Hanging out by the state line turning holy water into wine 
Drinkin' it down 
I'm on a bus on a psychedelic trip
Reading murder books trying to stay hip 
I'm thinking of you you're out there so 
Say your prayers
Say your prayers
Say your prayers 

Now I close my eyes 
And I wonder why
I don't despise 
Now all I can do 
Love what was once 
So alive and new 
But it's gone from your eyes 
I better realize 

Les yeux sans visage
Eyes without a face 
Les yeux sans visage
Eyes without a face 
Les yeux sans visage
Eyes without a face, got no human grace your eyes without a face
Such a human waste your eyes without a face 
And now it's getting worse
