The Man With The Child In His Eyes

Words & Music:

Kate Bush


Em  Em/D            C           G/B              Am

I hear him before I go to sleep and focus on the day that's been.

Em  Em/D                    C              G/B          Am

I realise he's there when I turn the light off and turn over.

Bm     A

Nobody knows about my man

Bb              F/A             G

They think he's lost on some horizon

               F#          F              Em       Eb

And suddenly I find myself listening to a man I've never known before:

Dm          C            G/B      F/A        Ab

Telling me about the sea all his love, 'til eternity.



C  G   C         Bb    F    Bb    F/A

Ooh-------, he's here again----------.

Bb               F/A          Cadd9(no 3)

The man with the child in his eyes.

Ooh-------, he's here again.

The man with the child in his eyes.


He's very understanding and he's so aware of all my situations.

And when I stay up late, he's always waiting; but I feel him hesitate.

Oh, I'm so worried about my love.

They say, "No, no, it won't last forever."

And here I am again, my girl,

Wondering what on earth I'm doing here.

Maybe he doesn't love me.

I just took a trip on my love for him.
