Amber Eyes

lyrics

Let’s bolt all our doors. Out there we are flawed. Here we’re safe and stored And from our silk dressed bed. We’ll live for us instead. Of living just for them
Your orange amber eyes, your teenage amber eyes, they’re a whole world and it’s the only world I wanna see.
I’m well past the point. Of ring past finger joint. I could not tell you that. It might scare you off. My in-finite love. Bright in-finite love.
Your orange amber eyes, your tired amber eyes, they’re a whole world and it’s the only world I wanna see. Do not feel inclined, to stare back into mine, the fact that you’re here and haven’t disappeared is all I need.
Your gym shoes on the floor. Remind me what I’m for. You’ll be back by five. Let’s let evening light. Shine in through the blinds. Phone calls from our kids.
Your orange amber eyes, your ageing amber eyes, they’re a whole world and it’s the only world I wanna see. The never loneliness, the always of your kiss, the feeling of your soul swamping my whole entirety.
Hold your wrinkled hands. Careful final dance. To pop songs from our teens. Lay you down again. Put your drip back in. Eye lids close on me.
Your orange amber eyes, your dying amber eyes, they’re a whole world that I’ll never see again. And I know pretty soon, I’ll be joining you, because the photos they don’t make them shine the same.
