Did you mean to say 'I'd turn (a) blind eye to the pain?' Or is that the way it is sung?

If you want things that way

a  ballad


If  I was only lonely instead of blue
I’d turn a blind eye to the pain
the shadows and the rain
If I was simply hungry and not just sad
I would dine on all the hurt
the best meal I ever had 2 comments


I’ve been watching you
from the corner of my eye
Suddenly you disappeared
into my tears


If I was lost in rainbows and not a storm
I would find my way to fields of gold
and never be forlorn
And should I wake tomorrow for the very last time
I will wrap myself in memories
of when you were in love with me


But  since you’ve gone I gaze into Hell
from the dark side of the moon
There’s no turning back when my heart
fades to black


If I was only lonely I’d  close my eyes
and wander through the garden
while the flowers die
If I was simply hungry and not just blue
I would swallow a spoonful
then choke on my own gloom


I’ve had the world pass me by
I’ve been lost in the crowd
there’s no sadder place to be
than where I am right now


I’ve seen the dark side of the moon
from the wrong side of the track
and nothing I can do
while my heart breaks in two
then fades to black
