lyrics

When I first met you your eyes were full of stars
Now your hair is full of smoke
And your dreams are falling faster through your hands
And you've bowed and scraped and laughed at all their jokes
And in this sea of faces there’s no recognition
Crashing against you like the waves of some uncharted ocean
And now you’re on the wrong side of your life
And you can’t go back
And it hurts so bad
But it feels so good

In spite of all this ephemera
My heart still beats for you
We are slaves to this city
Your eyes are beautiful

He says he dreams of you, but dreams are never true
There's a cast of actors, there are common factors
But you don’t feel envy, cos you just really don’t have the energy
And your blood runs cold, cos you bought and sold it all
And now you sleep and dream of fields of green
And waking up without a shock or feeling sick
If you knew where to go you’d pack your things and just go home
But home is nowhere
But you want to go there

In spite of all this ephemera
My heart still beats for you
We are slaves to this city
Your eyes are beautiful

So where do you go?
And what do you know now?
And where have you been?
And who have you seen?
As the days breaks cold was it worth all the time that you spent
As you tried to prevent it from going the way that it always does
And turning out just how you thought?

In spite of all this ephemera
My heart still beats for you
We are slaves to this city
Your eyes are beautiful
