Over his shoulder
Please don't mind me
If my eyes have fallen
Into youre magazine
Oh I've been watching
And wondering
Why your face is changing
With every line you read

For all those lines and circles
To me a mystery
Eve pull down the apple
And give a taste to me
If she could it would be wonderful
But my pride is in the way

I cannot read to save my life
I'm so ashamed to say
I ive in silence
Afraid to speak
Of my life in darkness
Because I cannot read

For all those lines and circles
To me a mystery
Eve pull down the apple
And give a taste to me
If she could it would be wonderful

Then I wouldn't need
someone elses eyes
To see what infront of me
No one guiding me

It makes me humble
To be so green
At what every kid can do
When he learns A to Z
But all those lines and circles
Just frighten me

And I fear that I'll be trampled
If you don't reach for me
Before I run
I have to take a fall

And when I pick
Myself up so slowly
I'll devour
Every one of those
Books in the tower
Of knowledge
