about

This is actually the third version of the song Black Eyes and therefore is accurately titled. The events within took place at the Social in Nottingham and are heavily romanticized via poetic license. For instance I neglect to mention the fact that she had on boys clothes and looked like she cut her own hair. Also that my vision was clouded by more than just cigarette smoke

lyrics

give me some words that i can use to break the ice or destroy the mood i need to be talking to you like he's talking between the wall and the cigarette machine there are two scorch marks next to a pile of debris that looks a lot like me do you long for a fire so bright it can light up your black eyes at night well i know where that fire ought to be it ought to be inside of me don't make me feel like broken glass because i've shattered so much in the past it's all crystal clear you're looking right through me sometimes i watch you watching me while i sing us both back to sleep and i dream of your black eyes i dream of your black eyes do you long for a fire so bright it can light up your black eyes at night well i know where that fire ought to be it ought to be inside of me
