She slept in my eyes
So no one could watch her sleeping
Her glittering gaze,
A sparkle in the shady winter
A milky moonlight painted the shore
When on Sundays she made me run
Our wild promises in a mumble
When her silence was the only commander

The hazy days are over now
You never came across as I sat there in disbelief
Like that sentimental furniture you always said you'd toss
I never slept on floating leaves
Oh I bet you did

She slept in my eyes
So no one could watch her sleeping
Her fleeting grace
A shade in the sparkling winter
Oh she and her do’s and don’ts!
Spending Mondays drinking rum
While the crooked rain kept falling with thunder
We drowned our boozy pain listening to Boxer

Her slinky dress is warming up the night
Eyes sharp like the blade of a knife
And suddenly she’s waving goodbye
