I can't help it, I am still in the new-fan stage, having recently discovered the Bacon Brothers (Kevin Bacon - yes, the actor - and his brother, Michael). I really like this song, which was written by Kevin and Michael and is out of Kevin's heart about his wife and two children. I think it's so sweet...
<br>
<br>
<br>"Brown Eyes"
<br>
<br>He's got his own sense of style
<br>He's got a seldom seen smile
<br>He's got a mystery mind
<br>But he'll let you see it sometimes
<br>He can rain he can rain
<br>On the sunniest day
<br>And he fights and he fights
<br>Just to do it his way
<br>He can't hit a ball
<br>But he still sants it all
<br>He's a lot like his dad in that way
<br>
<br>But he's mine, all mine
<br>'Til the end of the line
<br>'Til he up and decides
<br>To go his own way
<br>And I'd give my life for him
<br>I'd gladly die
<br>Suddenly I realize
<br>I've always wanted brown eyes
<br>
<br>She's got pink tights with a hole
<br>She's got an old woman's soul
<br>She's been telling me jokes
<br>Since she slept in a crib
<br>She'll squeeze you so tight
<br>You think you'll break a rib
<br>She's scared of the night
<br>'Cause she holds things inside
<br>Too much like her dad in that way
<br>
<br>But she's mine, all mine
<br>'Til the end of the line
<br>'Til some silly boy
<br>Tries to take her away
<br>And I'd give my life for her
<br>I'd gladly die
<br>Suddenly I realize
<br>I've always wanted brown eyes
<br>
<br>Half of the reason
<br>They're here is a girl
<br>With really strong genes
<br>And really soft curls
<br>I slip into darkness
<br>She whispers to me
<br>"You've just got to let them be
<br>Who they're gonna be"
<br>
<br>And they're mine, all mind
<br>'Til the end of the line
<br>Those three pairs of eyes
<br>Look at me in that way
<br>And I'd give my life for them
<br>I'd gladly die
<br>Suddenly I realize
<br>I've always wanted brown eyes
<br>
<br>Looks like I've got my brown eyes
<br>
<br>It is on the Bacon Brothers' debut album, Forosoco (Their term for their style of music: Folk-Rock-Soul-Country).
<br>
<br>Hope you don't mind me forcing this on you! I just really like it. Kevin's voice lends it the perfect touch.
