Quiet Eyes
Golden Earring Lyrics


Tony, my head is on a pillow
Clock strikes, it's the count of four
Four hours of tossin' and turnin'
In a big brass bed

I've tried all the tricks in the book now
But I just can't sleep no more
Tony, what's happenin' to me
I'm tired and I'm cold
Somehow I'm imagining things
Movin' in the shadow
And my face is a painting crying
In the heat of the sun

Let the world outside pay its dues
I'll never know why, no matter how high
It's a sign that's been sealed and delivered
Tony, it's lookin' into your
Quiet eyes, silent tears
Silent as the night you deserted me
Quiet eyes, silent tears
Silence, and the night lasted seven years

Meanwhile I'm counting all the hours
And I've counted all the days
On the pages of a calendar
And I threw it all away
Tony, I'm tryin' to make some sense, babe
I'm always tryin' to get through to you
Maybe you're the last one to notice
How much I've been lovin' you

Let the world outside pay its dues
I'll never know why, no matter how high
It's a sign that's been sealed and delivered
Tony, it's lookin' into your
Quiet eyes, silent tears
Silent as the night you deserted me
Quiet eyes, silent tears
Silent as the night you deserted me
Quiet eyes, silent tears
Silence, and the night lasted seven years

LYRICS

Tony, my head is on a pillow
Clock strikes, it's the count of four
Four hours of tossin' and turnin'
In a big brass bed

I've tried all the tricks in the book now
But I just can't sleep no more
Tony, what's happenin' to me
I'm tired and I'm cold
Somehow I'm imagining things
Movin' in the shadow
And my face is a painting crying
In the heat of the sun

Let the world outside pay its dues
I'll never know why, no matter how high
It's a sign that's been sealed and delivered
Tony, it's lookin' into your
Quiet eyes, silent tears
Silent as the night you deserted me
Quiet eyes, silent tears
Silence, and the night lasted seven years

Meanwhile I'm counting all the hours
And I've counted all the days
On the pages of a calendar
And I threw it all away
Tony, I'm tryin' to make some sense, babe
I'm always tryin' to get through to you
Maybe you're the last one to notice
How much I've been lovin' you

Let the world outside pay its dues
I'll never know why, no matter how high
It's a sign that's been sealed and delivered
Tony, it's lookin' into your
Quiet eyes, silent tears
Silent as the night you deserted me
Quiet eyes, silent tears
Silent as the night you deserted me
Quiet eyes, silent tears
Silence, and the night lasted seven years

Love and respect to George!

Sorry to hear about George. Golden Earring will be missed. Golden Earring(1961-2021).

T Mruzik

Such a great song, one of my favorites by Golden Earring. Shame that it doesn't get any attention here in the US

Otis Edward

i know it is quite randomly asking but does anyone know a good site to watch new tv shows online?

Back in the 70s we had to listen to Beaker Street AM radio from Little Rock to hear this kind of great music. AM radio was pretty sketchy when driving around because the transmitter was 200 miles away. Everyone was putting in AM/FM cassette player & nobody listened to am. That's what killed most songs except top 40 bullshit. To this day i can't listen to Free Bird or Stairway to Heaven or Radar Love or dozens of others. FM stations were run by guys that answered to some guy in a 3 piece suit. I have a steamer trunk full of obscure albums that i would hear on Beaker street.

One of the best songs of the Golden Earring. You can find it on Golden Earring's album The Hole.
