IN LOVE & ISOLATION

LYRICS

Composer

Hazel Eyes

 

Your eyes are so dangerous

And they glisten for me

Pulling like the moon

Against the depths of the sea

 

And I long to stay all night

Between the fall and the rise

And your dangerous

Hazel eyes

 

They meet the smile that forms

Upon your lips in times of joy

And if it’s ever wiped away

I know my duty for the day

 

For all that’s light in the world

Is trapped inside

Your smiling

Hazel eyes

 

The dealer deals the cards

Of life and love

But I have a strong hand

When you’re in my arms

 

And I wish I could pull

All the pain from your eyes

Carry it in my own

To make all your burdens mine

 

So I could stay all night

Between the stars in the sky

And your beautiful

Hazel eyes

Call You Mine

 

And why is it

That when I finally get the chance

To hold you

When I finally get the chance

To tell you

How beautiful you are

And to call you mine

That my mind focuses

Not on the fact that I am with you

But on the seemingly inevitable conclusion

That there will come a time

When I no longer get the chance

To hold you

When I no longer get the chance

To call you mine

Steps in Sync

 

And we were walking

Side by side

Steps in sync

My nerves awry

Down the street

With dusk’s light

As the evening

Turned to night

 

Wondering how

I got to be here

Out of the hovel

And sharing your cheer

Sharing the light

Of the setting sun

Which I've placed

My dreams upon

 

And as I sit here

On the bank

You’re skipping stones

Out of your hand

I take it in my own

And I say

All I’ve longed

To say

My State of Mind

 

The seagulls are driving me insane

The postman hammering on every door

The beep of his machine

More hammering

And worst of all 

The unfinished manuscript

In front of me

 

Suddenly it goes quiet

Except for the low rumble of traffic

And a song that I can’t quite make out

 

And I miss them, I miss them

The seagulls, the postman.

For I no longer have anything

Left to blame for my

State of mind

Here we go

We're going down

Again

 

My mind escapes me

Ah, for some relief

And it returns with thoughts

I dare not repeat

 

And I miss them, I miss them

The seagulls, the postman.

For I no longer have anything

Left to blame for my

State of mind

Here we go

Yeah we're going down

Again
