Bright Eyes – The Difference In The Shades lyrics
Now that it's June
We'll sleep out in the garden
And if it rains
We'll just sink into the mud
Where it is quiet
And much cooler than the house is
Or phones to wake us up
And there's no clocks
Because I have learned
That nothing is as pressing
As the one who is pressing
And I'm content
Would like you to believe
To walk a little slower
Because there's nowhere that...
I really need to be
And I find that life is easier
When it is just a blur
So when the ending comes
With no details to confuse
Who or what or where I was
The full regret will be obscure
But these are days we dream about
And this apartment could not be prettier
When the sunlight paints us gold
As we danced up there alone
And this tv's old
The color's fucked
But the green's still close to green, my love
Do you see the difference in the shades?
And I believe we are the same
And we'll stay like this, all gold and green
Light collects and projects your heart on a movie screen
The way we were that night you crawled inside of me
And you slept in my blood
And if you close your eyes we will always be
The quietest hush
The way you sleep now
Has consumed this house
And when the doctors have gone
And you sweat through the bed
They piled around your head
Just rest now
With all these pictures and pills
And in a moment you'll know everything
Was it all a dream?
It's too vague now to recount
An outline of the one you loved
That no longer will be
In a life that was
Stands above you
As you sleep
