Inside Your Eyes

 

"You took it all," 

Said the aspen to the fall 

"You cleared my limbs, 

In this cold, my faith wears thin"

 

The buzzards cry 

And they fall down from the sky

Preying on the lone

I pray my flesh sticks to my bone

 

I never asked for any harm

Never raised no stray alarm

I never swore I held your heart, but I wanted from the start

To play that precious part, the ember in the dark,

The love inside your eyes

 

A mess I made

With this gold I once was paid

Took me high to lead me low 

Into fog and the unknown

 

Now I'm howling at the moon

To scorn a love that ended too soon

I never swore I held your heart, but I wanted from the start 

To play that precious part, the ember in the dark

The love inside your eyes
