Jeff Healey - Angel Eyes (Official Video)





"Angel Eyes" is a song written by John Hiatt and Fred Koller, and produced by Greg Ladanyi for The Jeff Healey Band's first album See the Light (1988).

See the Light is the debut album by the Jeff Healey Band. It was released on September 13, 1988. It was No. 50 of the top 100 albums in Canada in 1989.[2] In 1990 it was nominated for an "Album of the Year" Juno Award.


Born in Toronto, Ontario, Healey was raised in the city's west end. He was adopted as an infant; his adoptive father was a firefighter. When he was almost one year old, Healey lost his sight to retinoblastoma, a rare cancer of the eyes. His eyes had to be surgically removed, and he was given ocular prostheses.







Lyrics


Girl, you're lookin' so good tonight

And every guy has got you in his sights

What you're doin' with a clown like me?

You know I've been called worse

It's got to be one of life's little mysteries


So tonight I'll ask the stars above

How did I ever win your love, yeah

What did I do, what did I say

To turn your angel eyes my way?


You know I'm the guy who never learned to dance

Never even got one second glance

I never saw a second glance

Way across a crowded room was close enough

I could look but I could never touch


So tonight I'll ask the stars above, yeah

Baby, how did I ever win your love?

What did I do, what did I say

To turn your angel eyes my way?


Don't anyone wake me, if it's just a dream

'Cause she's the best thing that's ever happened to me

All you fellows, you can stare at her all you like

But this girl that you see, she's leavin' here with me tonight


There's just one more little thing that I need to know

If this is love, why does it scare me so?

Well, it must be somethin' that only you can see

'Cause I can feel it, baby, when you look at me


So tonight I'll ask all the stars above

How did I ever win your love?

What did I do, what did I say

To turn your angel eyes my way?

Turn my way
