The Magnetic Fields – Torn Green Velvet Eyes lyrics

You know the rain is gone when the sky is full of dust
And the tears are gone when your eyes are red as rust
And it just rains because it can and you just cry until you can't

But I can feel my courage crumbling
And my heart just turns to ice
When I see myself reflected
In your torn green velvet eyes.

You know the night is gone when the sunlight burns your eyes
And the cold is gone when the room is full of flies
And it's all a waste of time if you try to change your mind
And it's all a waste of time if you try to change your mind
