lyrics

SORE EYES

Your heels they are worn from the thorns and the fields
Your nerves they are blind to sensations they feel
Your sore eyes stare at what focus conceals

Conceals
Conceals
Conceals

Her heels they are stained from the plants that you tend
Round the border of where she would run from your head
When your heart it was heavy with restless content

Content
Content
Content

You look the same, all that's changed is the time.
You look the same, all that's changed is the time.
You look the same all that's changed is the time.
Time took you in restless, left me behind

Petals and grains were exchanged hand to hand
To foreshadow that all is just dust in the end
Where all that remains is that quiet consent

Consent
Consent
Consent

A picture hangs from your wall wrapped in potpourri blooms
Saying homes they may break and the future may loom
But my love, weren't we once just a bride and a groom?

You look the same, all that's changed is the time.
You look the same, all that's changed is the time.
You look the same all that's changed is the time.
Time took you in restless, left me behind

Still frames, so long.
Have you, daylight gone
A paler place than this?
Oh, have you daylight gone?
Stone has weathered better men


And you're beautiful layered in stones rouge and gold
But layer by layer let your sacred mask fold
Til the beauty that was meant to have and to hold, I hold

I hold
I hold

Until fate drags my hands from our deepest embrace
Until all that is left is a widower's place
Did my flowers and milk on the gods go to waste?

To waste
To waste
To waste

You look the same, all that's changed is the time.
You look the same, all that's changed is the time.
You look the same all that's changed is the time.
Time took you in restless, left me behind

There was a time when the constant star always would rise
And your thin lips would quiver at every missed try
Singing, hey baby, aren't you a sight for sore eyes?

Sore eyes, sore eyes, sore eyes

Sore eyes, sore eyes, sore eyes

Sore eyes, sore eyes, sore eyes
