Unknown Eyes
Can't tell a book by its cover

Don't know all who's around me

First black president just walked by

But didn't know her, so I didn't say "Hi"

Don't know the people in public, all unknown eyes


The woman over there is the next Jordan

Over there, the next Confucius is sleeping

So many people, but so little time

Don't know everyone, and cant tell by the signs

All these people, but all unknown eyes


Don't know their names or feelings

Neither their characteristics nor their favorites

Goals and even their lifestyles

Then there are the ones I want to know

And some I don't want to even see
