Blind Eye (2020 Version)

Uploaded .

You can take the red head out of the 80’s, but you can’t take the 80’s out of the red head… I guess. I didn’t like anything current when I was growing up during the 80’s. Well, almost anything.

This one was originally written during the 2014 50/90. I think it’s the closest I’ll ever come to sounding like The Police… no offense to The Police.

The guitars are all Gibson ES-335. The amps for the rhythm guitars are a Fender Bassbreaker 15. The lead ran through two amps. The Fender and a Vox AC15. I expect to be using two amps for most things going forward. For now at least.

when it happens don’t you turn a blind eye
when it comes around don’t be staring at the sky
pay attention to what’s happening right now
what you’re waiting for is standing right here

you’ve been waiting
all these years
you’ve been crying
all these tears

that’s all over now

she’s been hiding
in plain site
she’s been waiting
in the light
