Evil Eye 03:25
Couldn't look him in the pale blue eye Couldn't look him in the evil eye Moved to the beat, beat of a heart Beat in a chest, beneath the boards I creeped in at the door so faintly seven nights So near the bedside in the soft lantern light Moved to the beat, beat of a heart Beat in a chest, beneath the boards The shriek was my own in a dream The shriek was my own in a dream now I smiled gaily to find the deed so far done Worked in silence after the hour had come Moved to the beat, beat of a heart Beat in a chest, beneath the boards The shriek was my own in a dream The shriek was my own in a dream now And I smiled, because what had I to fear? The shriek was my own in a dream

Her eyes are full of lightning They're just on fire And all anyone can do Is sit and enjoy the view And put the weather underground (in the garden) And put the weather underground You could study me, you could analyze my moods Will I hold a Bermuda high or carry a monsoon? Will there be sunny skies or a grey winter low? And after blizzard winds, will there be angels in the snow? She puts the weather underground (in the garden) She puts the weather underground Down, down... We put the weather underground (in the garden) We put the weather underground Down, down...

Miles Away 03:30
Looking for a reason The memories recalled Lay ripe and for the picking Inside your dresser drawer Beside your favorite t-shirt The one that’s washed and worn And frayed along the edges Like a page from your passport (Rock salt on the first day of summer) Rely on something borrowed And wake up feeling blue Searching far and wide For something new Looking for a reason I’m searching for the light Any type of season Any time of night I packed my bags and left there But now I’m looking for my friend There isn’t much to see here That I would recommend Rely on something borrowed And wake up feeling blue Searching far and wide For something new All this indecision And nights I’ve come unglued Might seem miles away When I’m with you We only said goodbye To come back later (there's a time for us all) Held tight and kept on keeping on (there's a time for a fall) There’s a picture it hangs on your refrigerator And reminds me why I’ve been hanging out this long

You and me, we both got wings We know that things are gonna change You and me, we both see things That other people don't see We take new pictures, and we rearrange the frames We make our own words along the way The only constant is change The only constant is change Never thought it would be easy But we knew it would be right Never thought it would be easy Tonight We were born to run We were born to run Seasons change under the sun But together, we were born to run Things are gonna change so fast But we were built to last We were? We were

January, the death of me Cold empty streets filled with dead Christmas trees And the choir of voices has become background noises To the ghosts in our hearts haunting our choices Tell my city I’m gone And tell my baby I’m leaving They serve us liters of fine wine and champagne But they charge us by the flute again So tell my city I’m gone and tell my baby I’m leaving I’m going somewhere I don’t have to be believed in Tomorrow feels like yesterday It’s a lead weight Tomorrow feels like yesterday again But there are new ways There are new ways There are new ways There are new ways to make the same mistakes
