Derek Webb – Black Eye lyrics

Black eye from staring through a keyhole at my lover
I swear it's not from his fists
When stockholm syndrome comes to where they're keeping you
You never know what time it is

Black eye is all it's gonna take for me to love you
It's written in my constitution
If you go, you know I'm coming with you
Blind, bound by love

[Chorus:]
Time is no friend to the ones who wait
For daylight to come
Time looks the same at the ones who hate
And the ones that do nothing

Black eye is what I'm gonna paint for your protection
To cover the tracks that you're leaving
I misplace my face so we can be together
Red lips change how you're perceiving

[Chorus:]
