behind your eyes
lyrics by Penelope Houston/ music by P. Houston and E. Nemzer
Since yesterday the sun is gone
shadows pour from his golden cage
and broken dreams like broken glass
and ashes dust my pillowcase
Oh, yesterday we danced in the sunlight
laughter ringing out in the moonlight
black coffee making all our plans
I miss your mouth that tastes of smoke and whiskey
sweet tobacco gone so quickly
like houses built of sand

Since yesterday my love has flown
he dyed the night with his bitter rage
and all his songs burn in my throat
and liquor cannot wash away

We live in this darkness beneath your lies
deliver the promise behind your eyes

Since yesterday the sun is gone
shadows pour from his golden cage
and broken dreams like broken glass
and ashes dust my pillowcase.

Oh, yesterday we danced in the sunlight
laughter ringing out in the moonlight
black coffee making all our plans
I miss your mouth that tastes of smoke and whiskey
sweet tobacco gone so quickly
like houses built of sand

We live in this darkness beneath your lies
deliver the promise behind your eyes.
We live in this darkness beneath your lies
deliver the promise behind your eyes.
