Lyrics

When The Sun Hits Your Eyes

Written By: Eoin Ryan

I will find out where to go myself from here and days will pass us by as quick as they draw near

But its all in the way you say what you say my dear and when you arise and the sun hits your eyes you can see more clear
I feel i know you all my life x3

Pain can't come near me cause i am free of sin and ways god will steal as thought so long we've been and gone so long

Chorus
Solo

Pleasure For The Pain

Written By: Eoin Ryan

Well do i make you wanna dance or would you be more comfortable if we were some where else
And do i, do i make you wanna sing to these fine words i wrote for you my world now twists and turns for you because i love you yeah i love you.......but do i love her or is she just a.....a pleasure for the pain yeah ohh

And when i, when i fall from grace you'll be the one who told me so and then ill kiss your face
