BRIGHT EYES


is it a kind of dream floating out on the tide
following the river of death downstream
oh is it a dream ?
there's a fog along the horizon • a strange glow in the sky
and nobody seems to know where you go • and what does it mean ?
oh oh is it a dream ?

is it a kind of shadow reaching into the night ?
wandering over the hills unseen
or is it a dream ?
there's a high wind in the trees • a cold sound in the air
and nobody ever knows when you go • or where do you start ?
oh oh into the dark

bright eyes • burning like fire
bright eyes • how can you close and fail ?
how can the light that burned so softly suddenly burn so pale ?
bright eyes
