eyes wide open

Hanns "Blue" Blumentrath picked the lyrics that I had originally written for Ronson from India, and he wrote and recorded a wonderful song:
Hanns Blumentrath - eyes wide open

He left the pre-choruses out and used that part as bridge. The lyrics now go:

you think he's your great love
the real thing
but will he stand the test
will he be true
pure, gentle, romantic
your white knight

you think he is the best
the best for you
best for now
now and ever

eyes wide open
I can see you head for a fall
eyes wide open
I don't wanna watch you break down and fall

do I have to tell you
what I heard
about his way with girls
hurtful and rude
do I have to warn you
what's in store

once he is sure of you
he's got you
got you for now
now and ever

eyes wide open
I can see you head for a fall
eyes wide open
I don't wanna watch you break down and fall

today he charms you
one day he'll harm you
why aren't you acting
like blind

eyes wide open
I can see you head for a fall
eyes wide open
I don't wanna watch you break down and fall
