Roger Waters - 5:06 A.M. (Every Strangers' Eyes) lyrics

Waitress :"Hello...you wanna cup of coffee?" Trucker :"Hey...Turn the f**ing Juke Box down" Waitress :"I'm sorry, would you like a cup of coffee? Okay, you take cream and sugar? Sure" [Verse 1] In truck stops and hamburger joints In Cadillac limousines, in the company of has-beens And bent-backs And sleeping forms, on pavement steps In libraries and railways stations In books and banks In the pages of history In suicidal cavalry attacks [Chorus] I recognize Myself, in every stranger's eyes [Verse 2] And in wheelchairs, by monuments Under tube trains and commuter accidents In council care and county courts At Easter fairs and seaside resorts In drawing boards and city morgues In award winning photographs, of life rafts on the China seas In transit camps, under arc lamps On unloading ramps, in faces blurred by rubber stamps [Chorus] I recognize Myself, in every stranger's eyes [Verse 3] And now From where I stand Upon this hill I plundered from the pool I look around I search the skies I shade my eyes So nearly blind And I see signs Of half remembered days I hear bells that chime In strange familiar ways [Chorus] I recognize The hope, you kindle in your eyes [Outro] It's all so easy now As we lie here in the dark Nothing interferes, it's obvious how to beat the tears That threaten to snuff out the spark of our love
