Boo Hewerdine – Eve lyrics

Eve lives by the flower market
Where they work all through the night
And there's no dusk and there's no dawn
It's always light

She said you know I've grown to like this
To know the darkness will not come
The birds round here are always singing
To greet the sun

And some of us are born to shine
And some of us are not
Most of us we must accept
Whatever is our lot

Eve was talking to her boyfriend
He said I'll have to move away
He says I don't know how you stand it
No night from day

She laughed and said I'll tell you something
There's worse places I could be
At least I know it's not daybreak
Takes you from me
