LYRICS

Pretty eyes, pretty eyes
Not a cloud in my day
Not a cloud in my way
Angel eyes, no disguise
No pretension is here
No pretension, no fear

Don’t leave me calling
Don’t leave me falling
Don’t leave me calling
Don’t leave me falling

Stay a while, stay a while
I will tell you my mind
I will tell you my mind
I would give everything, just to take all your pain
Just to take all your pain

Don’t leave me calling
Don’t leave me falling
Don’t leave me calling
Don’t leave me falling

NOTES

  • In an interview in 2002 Dolores explained how the song was recorded: “Songs like “Chocolate Brown”, “Pretty Eyes” and “Carry On” are recorded with the entire band playing at the same time.
  • The track title was revealed on the former cranberries.ie official website in March 2001, months before its release on Wake Up And Smell The Coffee : “One song, ‘Pretty Eyes’ slips out between the more feisty numbers, a soft lulliby ballad that blends the talents of band and producer into one soft, lucious performance. A hint of things to come.”
