Only My Eyes Can See

lyrics

Another town on the circuit. It ain’t much, but there’s a river there.
Hard liquor and prostitution, but if it plays there, it can play anywhere.
I came down from Chicago. It gets so hard to make a name up there.
Broke my back for White City, but got no name for my labor.
Well, I’m (I’m) dreaming like (dreaming) Dreamland in Brooklyn.
And, I’m (I) seeing what only (see) my eyes can see.
I’m (I’m) dreaming like (dreaming) Dreamland in Brooklyn.
And, I’m (I) seeing what only (see) my eyes can see.
I parked my yacht down on Main Street.
I met with Webb to discuss the use of land.
Next, I met with Central City. I got my funding from Finley.
By ‘05 I had a carousel, a coaster, men set aflame.
Well, I’m (I’m) dreaming like (dreaming) Dreamland in Brooklyn.
And, I’m (I) seeing what only (see) my eyes can see.
I’m (I’m) dreaming like (dreaming) Dreamland in Brooklyn.
And, I’m (I) seeing what only (see) my eyes can see.
I’ll make Al Fresco sing.
