Lyrics :

She was the only girl in your eyes
She was the one good thing in your life
How is it different now, over night?
What is this inexplicable cloud that blocks your sight?
Oh yeah, I’ll take your word
Your eyes are better than mine
But I still can’t see a single stain on the sun
Oh, but if you say it’s there
It’s bound to darken in time
You go your way, you do what has to be done
She was the answer to all your prayers
She was as vital to you as the air
Why is she suddenly such a drag?
Where is the bullet, oh, in the holy roman flag?
Oh yeah, I’ll take your word
Your eyes are better than mine
But I still can’t see a single stain on the sun
Oh, but if you say it’s there
It’s bound to darken in time
You go your way, you do what has to be done
Oh yeah, I’ll take your word
Your eyes are better than mine
But I still can’t see a single stain on the sun
Oh, but if you say it’s there
It’s bound to darken in time
You go your way, you do what has to be done
Oh, I’ll take your word
Your eyes are better than mine
But I still can’t see a single stain on the sun
Oh, but if you say it’s there
It’s bound to darken in time
You go your way, you do what has to be done
