Davis, Paul - Oriental Eyes Lyrics




Took my annual vacation
Improved my foreign relations
Well I got an education
And true love
True love

When I got back to my home town
Wearin' out my old stompin' ground
Don't you know that that's when I found
My heart was in those oriental eyes

Oriental eyes
You could see things I could not see
No matter how I try
You've come back to me
You've come back to me
You've come back to me
How you've come back to me

Oriental eyes
You showed how love's supposed to be
And sometimes in the night
You've come back to me
You've come back to me

She had her family tradition
I had a myriad of convictions
But there was no restriction
It was real love
True love

She was young and tender
She was ready to surrender
Oh and back home I realized
My heart's still in those oriental eyes

Oriental eyes
You could see things I could not see
No matter how I try
You've come back to me
Oh you've come back to me

Oriental eyes
You showed what love's supposed to be
And sometimes in the night
You've come back to me
You've come back to me
You've come back to me
How you've come back to me

Oriental eyes
You've come back to me
You've come back to me

Sometimes in the night
You've come back to me
You've come back to me

No matter how I try
You've come back to me
You've come back to me

Oriental eyes
You've come back to me
Yes you've come back to me

    And true love
    True love

    When I got back to my home town
    Wearin' out my old stompin' ground
    Don't you know that that's when I found
    My heart was in those oriental eyes

    Oriental eyes
    You could see things I could not see
    No matter how I try
    You've come back to me
    You've come back to me
    You've come back to me
    How you've come back to me

    Oriental eyes
    You showed how love's supposed to be
    And sometimes in the night
    You've come back to me
    You've come back to me

    You've come back to me
    You've come back to me
    You've come back to me
    How you've come back to me

    Oriental eyes
    You've come back to me
    You've come back to me

    Sometimes in the night
    You've come back to me
    You've come back to me

    No matter how I try
    You've come back to me
    You've come back to me

    Oriental eyes
    You've come back to me
    Yes you've come back to me

    He should of released this song as a single and it might have done as good as Cool Night and 65 Love Affair did.  Similarly Laura Branigan put a remake of someone's classic hit on every one of her albums but never released any them as singles.  Guess they had their reasons.

  3. Denise Hedden

    Beautiful song by a Beautiful Soul.
    RIP Paul🕊🕊🕊🕊🕊🕊🕊🕊🕊🕊🎹

    I saw Paul Davis at a disco called "New York, New York" in Augusta, Georgia in the early 80's. I still remember him doing this song along with his top 40 hits. Great time. Best $10 ever spent!

    1981 tuvo la dicha de presenciar uno de los mejores álbum de westcoast aor de toda la historia ochentera, cortesía del grande Paul Davis... y esta canción es la segunda joya del álbum, después de CoolNight !

  13. Edgar Strauss

    Camaro SS

    Luke Donnelly who was the guy that covered this song? I know that Paul Davis wrote this song.

    This is such a sweet groove.  Thank you for posting.  Peace friend.

  15. jam FERNANDEZ

    its nice to here a very relaxing song after an intense workout.

  16. Scott Ellis

    I was lucky enough to be on this tour with Paul in 82/83. I loved this song then and still do. We were invited to do a Japanese tour but Paul would not fly, and a ship that far, no way! He was a great musician and better man. I learned a lot about life and being a good person from the couple Of years I spent with that sweet man.

    You know, Scott,   I always wondered what '65 Love Affair sounded like live.   The studio version has such sleek production,  I was not sure how close the live version came to it.  And of course,  missed this tour.  It was a few years before I started attending concerts.   Any comments?   Did anyone ever record you guys playing a live show back then on that 82/83 tour?  

    Victor Vintage

    +Scott Ellis Lucky you Scott! I really love this record of Paul Davis... I would've liked to be on that 82/83 tour, too bad I was born like 10 years after that tour...

    Ida Porche

    He does seem like a very sweet & kind man

  17. Tienda Online ewoked
