lyrics

i got bad vision so i gotta wear glasses
and it seems like forever since i've seen with my eyes
i sleep with my glasses in reach of my bed
and there's something so sad about waking up blind

a drunk needs whiskey and a sinner needs Jesus
and i need my glasses on just to get by
and i drank some whiskey and i pray to Jesus
but nothing's gonna bring the sight back to my eyes

i got bad vision so i gotta wear glasses
and it seems like forever since i've seen with my eyes
i sleep with my glasses in reach of my bed
and there's something so sad about waking up blind

sometimes when i'm wearing my glasses
i see things clearly that i wish i couldn't see
like the faces of all of those pretty young girls
who say "a man who wears glasses is no man for me"

i got bad vision so i gotta wear glasses
and it seems like forever since i've seen with my eyes
i sleep with my glasses in reach of my bed
and there's something so sad about waking up blind
