A little song about the way we view people in the context of when we met them.

A sort of story of someone waking up after a bit of a long night.




My Bathroom mirror this morning won't stand still,
That goddamned light reflecting off the sill,
shows me I cant keep my mouth shut
and this time as much as any time is enough

my middle school teacher used to ask me what I want to be
right now I can't think to do anything but brush my teeth
spit shine watch it glide down the sink
cuz you and I took a bath in rye I think

still those big brown eyes and that smoky smile
won't shine if the sun comes up
cuz you know as much as I know
they're made up

Ashes and lashes on my windowsill
I can't believe they're sitting up there still
like light couldn't grace me to pick them up
like god didn't need them enough

ashes and lashes keep me up at night
staring and laughing from the dim streetlight
they're yours and what's more is you're alright
to see you -all of you in daylight

It's a wonder you could get home
past the garden gnome
who'll sit a watch you do nothing
when you're all alone
this house has got eyes for you
this house has got eyes and eyes for you
