"Blind Man" as written by Taylor Rhodes, Joe Perry and Steven Tyler....
I took a course in hallelujah
I went to night school for the blues
I took some stuff they said would cool ya
But nothing seemed to light my fuse
But it's all in the past
Like a check that's in the mail
She was a tall whiskey glass
I was an old hound dog that just loved to chase his tail
Until I met a blind man
Who taught me how to see
A blind man
Who could change night into day
And if I can
I'm gonna make you come with me
Because here comes the sun and we'll be chasing all the clouds away

I've had some lovers like a joy ride
Some things are never what they seem
My heaven's turned into a landslide
I thank God I woke up from the dream
Because here comes the sun and we'll be chasing all the clouds
The way bees chase honey
And drink all the flowers dry
We'll be saving us a little money
And if that don't do it, yeah, I know the reason why
Don't make no sense lightin' candles
There's too much moonlight in our eyes
Because here comes the sun
Ain't no surprise
Ain't no doubt about it
Gonna open up your eyes

    General CommentI read a long time ago that this song is about the Steven Tyler's journey into sobriety and Alcoholics Anonymous.

    It makes sense if you consider that AA members are completely supported by other alcoholics. Sort of the "blind leading the blind."

    General CommentI think the song means that you shouldn't judge a book by its cover. The blind man didn't literally teach him now to see, what the lyrics mean is that you have to look deeper. This blind man taught him that there's more to life than what you physically see. It's about understanding and feeling. You have to open your heart and your mind and let people in, and sometimes that means looking past your own insecurities and shallowness and then you might finally see the proverbial light.

    General CommentYeah I agree with GuitarGroupie. Everything is not what it seems. I've learnt this the hard way. But I love Aerosmith and this is one of my favorite songs by them.

    General CommentFantastic song.

    "I met a Blind Man, who taught me how to see..." Is a very powerful and well thought out lyric. I'm in complete agreement with GuitarGroupie also.

    Fantastic song.

    General Commentive read in the autobiography that this is how steven felt when he had become sober he saw all the amazing things he hadnt been able to see when he was high or drunk
    i agree with what avalon12 said as well about the blind leading the blind
