Kershaw, Nik - Elizabeth's Eyes Lyrics




I told my tale with some words
From jail and a Bible vow
But fear and fury were my judge and
Jury so here I am now
There was a letter

A hundred letters
I wrote a letter
It said "Hey Mr. President I hope
You're fit and strong"
And I hope you'll give me every
Chance to live because they done me wrong

My hope lies in Elisabeth's eyes
Love I will never have known
My hope lies in Elisabeth's eyes
Alone

Still reeling I detect a feeling that I'm here to stay
Somebody locked me up
Somebody threw my key away
I got a letter
A single letter
I read the letter
It said "Hang in there boy
I am fighting for you still"
It was then I knew I really loved her too
I guess I always will

My hope lies in Elisabeth's eyes
Love I will never have known
My hope lies in Elisabeth's eyes
Alone

Another letter
The last letter
I wrote a letter
It said "Don't cry lady, you really shouldn't care"
Tuesday at seven I will find my heaven
And I'll see you there

My hope lies in Elisabeth's eyes
Love I will never have known
My hope lies in Elisabeth's eyes
Alone

My hope lies in Elisabeth's eyes
Love I will never have known
My hope lies in Elisabeth's eyes
Alone

  5. Kayleigh Natasha

    'Tuesday at seven, I will find my heaven'

  6. Brent Crude

    Wasn't as successful as his more well-known chart hits, but this is a beautiful, beautiful song.
    One of my favourite songwriters of all time. Been a huge fan since his debut.

  7. Gerard Hughes

    Quality song and album still

  8. Christiaan stephanus

    One of my fav from nik!! ❤

  9. OolTube02

    It's tough to find a song when you can't figure out the lyrics.

    "My home lies in a lizard of size" -- no Google results...

    Timo Kuusisto

    Well they call the Queen Elizabeth as Lizzie the Lizard (for a good reason)

  10. Retrolution Games

    It's crazy that this song flopped and lead to Kershaw ending his career as a performer, it's pure poetry, the true story of a man on death row writing love letters to a pen pal he fell for as she fought to prove his innocence. A truly amazing and touching song.

  11. Teresa Wheeler

    once a nk fan always a nk fan..... I have been a fan since forever xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

  20. methmal senavirathne

    Never knew that there's such a sad story behind this song when I started listening to this song as a teenager. My thoughts go out to Willie Darden.

  21. Jmsessn
