Frank Ocean – Eyes Like Sky Lyrics

Having recently announced that he’s 10 or 11 tracks deep into the recording process of his currently untitled sophomore album, a previously unheard Frank Ocean song has surfaced, supposedly being a leftover from his debut album “Channel Orange” but sounding to me a lot more like an older demo from his Lonny Breaux days.

It’s an acoustic guitar driven mid-tempo pop track and as ever from Mr. Ocean, is lyrically and vocally impeccable. The only thing it’s really missing and that would have held it back is the lack of a killer chorus but nonetheless, it still sounds great so press play below and let me know your thoughts!

Lyrics:

[Verse 1]

Hell yeah

A blind boy sees a green girl
She drives a green car through a dream world
She meets up with the green club
And talks of saving the earth from itself

A blind boy
Saw a blue man
Who rides a blue bus through a nightmare
And leaves work to a blue home
Where the blue seem different
Since she’s passed away

[Chorus]

And the same boy
With sunken eyes saw me
And described
Yellow so perfectly

Said he’s watching
Watching
Watching here
With eyes like sky
Eyes like I never seen

[Verse 2]

A blind boy
Became a kind man
Who painted white lights on a canvas
He once said he didn’t write songs
‘Cause making music would be selfish
And back then he saw the flags fly
Seen them fight and divide for it
He said war is for those who can see it
but what good is a border to me yeah

[Chorus]

And the same man
With sunken eyes saw me
And described
Yellow so perfectly
Said he’s watching
Watching
Watching
With eyes like sky
Eyes like I never seen

[Verse 3]

I said I wish you could see the ocean
He said I wish you could see hope
I said have you ever seen a mountain
He said no but my faith can move those

I said I wish you could see the stars
He told me I should see love (love)

Hell yeah

[Outro]

Said he’s watching
Watching
Watching
With eyes like sky
Eyes like I never seen

    Some errors in the lyrics posted

    Where u said ‘Where sun can asks of me’: I think he meant ‘with sunken eyes’

    Also where u say ‘Yellow so perfect, he’: sounds like ‘yellow so perfectly’

    Another error. On the second chorus ‘And the same man where sun can asks of me’: sound like. ‘ and the same man with sunken eyes saw me’
