Eyes That Say I Love You

When the night has gone cold and you’re standing so alone
On the threshold of the rest of what you know
When the fever has died out, turned a flood to a drought
Left a chill inside that’s growing like a ghost

You’ll come running with eyes that say ‘I love you’
You’ll be blind, you’ll be blind
And I won’t know you, I won’t see you
I won’t need you, I won’t love you anymore

When the poison from the wound slowly takes hold of you
And the only way not to drown is not to fight it
When you’re falling down the stairs with your superstitions and despair
On a helter skelter fall to your demise

Oh you thought that you would never need
What I could have 
Given had you given half a chance

Start again from the end, from beyond where you’ve been
You can’t wash away your sins in shallow water
Cast a stone in a grave of the plans that you made
They can only go as far as you can throw them

You’ll come running with eyes that say ‘I love you’
You’ll be blind, so blind
And I won’t know you, I won’t see you
I won’t need you, I won’t love you anymore
