When in love with a blind man
You watch what you say
And you watch yourself burn
With dreams of escaping
Make love to the man who shapes your behavior

When in love with a blind man
You love on your own
To an occasional smile
You never know why but sometimes he smiles
And sometimes just lies there, so jealous

    General CommentSounds like it's drawn from the same subject material as this:

    You better love loving and you better behave
    Woman in chains, woman in chains

    Trades her soul for skin and bones
    Sells the only thing she owns
    Woman in chains, woman in chains

    General CommentAlways loved this song from the first time I played it as the B-side of my "Head Over Heels" 45 in 1985. Lyrically it sounds like something Roland wrote about his parents - kinduva precursor to "Woman In Chains" from the next TFF album, "The Seeds Of Love".

    This song seems to be a bit unfinished or underdeveloped which probably has a lot to do with why it was relegated to the B-side of a single. Regardless, its unfinished quality is what gives it much of its charm. The abrupt-slash-premature ending was always a point of interest with me.

    General CommentAnd obviously the musical arrangement is remarkably similar to The Working Hour. It would be interesting to know which was written first. If this feels unfinished then maybe this was written first, then it evolved into The Working Hour which was put on the album and this kept as a B side.
