In The Gaze of the Spotlight's Eye
by Mark Heard

Album: Eye Of The Storm


In the gaze of the spotlight's eye
A long way from home
Still nauseous from a turbulent sky
Up on the stage alone

The live end of a microphone
Point-blank to my soul
I'm trying hard
To keep my self-control

I want to go home
I wish that this night would end
I've got to go on
And shoot from the heart again

Somebody came for the rock n' roll
Somebody carne for a smile
Somebody came for a sermon in song
Or something to call worthwhile
The expectations of who-knows-who
Examining my soul
Unknown faces expecting me to play some role

And oh, I want to go home
I wish that this night would end
But I've got to go on
And shoot from the heart again

I don't have no magical words
No pockets full of spiritual jewels
I only know about the way things are
In light of the simple truth
I don't know which hearts are breaking
Or whose flags are truly unfurled
Between here and heaven and the outside world

And oh, I want to go home
I wish that this night would end
But I've got to go on
And shoot from the heart again
