am i supposed to close my eyes as you walk away from me
am i supposed to blind myself so i'll never have to see
you walking side by side with a different kind of man
who'll redefine your body in ways i know i...
what if i don't want to go now
will you come and put these eyes out for me...
so don't go and blame your mother for what's your father's fault
or all of your daughters will turn out just like you
bent on destruction and burning through their beauty
and looking beyond their years by the time they're only (twenty)...
and what if i don't want to go now
will you come put these eyes out for me...
oh c'est la vie please don't go and abandon me
when the bridge burns down and the bad blood tastes like wine on the wind
and they c'est beware of the man in shades
beware beware of the man in shades beware
i stutter step my way across desert lakes to try and sweat the ghost of the past and lay my anchor at last at your feet
as they c'est beware of the man in shades
beware beware of the man in shades beware i am the man in shades
yes i am i am the man in shades
yes i am i am the man in shades
yes i am i am the man in shades
yes i am

    Lyric CorrectionThese lyrics are a bit off from the album version of the song. Correct lyrics are:

    Am I supposed to close my eyes as you walk away from me
    Am I supposed to blind myself so I'll never have to see
    You walking side by side with a different kind of man
    Who'll redefine your body in ways I know I...

    What if I don't want to go now
    Will you come put these eyes out

    So don't go and blame your mother for what's your father's fault
    Or all of your daughters will turn out just like you
    Bent on destruction and burning through your beauty
    And looking beyond your years by the time you're only...

    What if I don't want to go now
    Will you come put these eyes out

    Oh c'est la vie please don't go and abandon me
    When the bridge burns down and the bad blood tastes like wine on the wind
    (And they say) Beware of the man in shades, beware
    Beware of the man in shades, beware

    I stutter step my way across desert lakes to try to sweat the ghost of the past
    So I can lay my anchor at last at your feet

    (As they say) Beware of the man in shades, beware
    Beware of the man in shades, beware

    I am the man in shades, yes I am
    I am the man in shades, yes I am
    I am the man in shades, yes I am (and this ship will sail, and this heart wont die)(x5)

    Oh c'est la vie please don't go and abandon me
    When the bridge burns down and the bad blood tastes like wine on the wind

    I am the man in shades, yes I am (and this ship will sail, and this heart wont die) (x3)
