Glue - Still eyes
(from the album Sunset Lodge EP)
© copyright 2005

Sun leaks right through the cracks in the blinds,
Itís hard to believe that the day is still as night,
I reach for the ashtray, to find a half a smoke,
All the bottles are empty, where has everybody gone?

Weíre full of questions, on a warm summer night in june,
I'm here traveling alone, to cousins your house feeling so consumed,
with the lost feeling, grieving for myself, I'm ready to stop,
completing the cycle of rotting away, iíd play forever, if youíd drop,
everything and come lay on the grass with me,
talk about your travels and let me soak in your good company,
weíve only met twice, and my life is a closed book,
but I'm willing to open up just tonight to let your wandering eyes take a look,

I traded fantasy for fact the moment we got it back...
and still i, still i...
Still iíve got so much to give and weíve got no time to live,
but still i and still
Still i keep on moving on making right from all my wrongs,
but still i still i still i
Still Iíve got no faith in clocks, all they ever do is watch,
Still eyes still eyes.

Take a step back, try to recreate,
Walking backwards through the haze of yesterday,
Take another hit, another hit and I might be fine,
At least I could release my mindÖ.

Counting constellations, the conversation heavy but invited,
you told me youíve never loved but one day decided,
to find, what you werenít expecting, to feel god in someoneís touch,
to walk together without using your genius as a crutch,
the grass wrapped us up and dropped us down with the degrees,
i gave you my jacket and while we both paused and had to breath,
i wasnít looking for salvation, and I'm sure you were surprised,
how we fit together hand and hand above the swaying night time skies,

I traded fantasy for fact the moment we got it back...
and still i, still i...
Still iíve got so much to give and weíve got no time to live,
but still i and still
Still i keep on moving on making right from all my wrongs,
but still i still i still i
Still Iíve got no faith in clocks, all they ever do is watch,
Still eyes still eyes.

The light it brings in clarity,
The thoughts have run away from me,
a rushing back to memory,
awarding new reality

the way you talk, the open heart,
small town write with a broken lock,
quite presence, perfect name,
how did I find you so far away?

So Iíll take this gift,
Iíll promise that Iíll learn from this,
And if itís what I think it is,
Then you get all I have to give `

The car is running, musicís playing,
laying in the backseat waiting,
for a touch so pure it keeps us warm,
and lets old souls be reborn

peaceful collected and at my own pace,
allowing the sunshine to spread itís warmth across my face

itís 1:30am, eyelids get heavy and fall to rest,
place my heavy head on the right side of your chest, to say goodbye,
we die and kiss under shattered light-bulbs and let it be
tonightís not an end itís a future brilliant history.

I traded fantasy for fact the moment we got it back...
and still i, still i...
Still iíve got so much to give and weíve got no time to live,
but still i and still
Still i keep on moving on making right from all my wrongs,
but still i still i still i
Iím still convinced New Hampshire nights are where we both belong,
