I see your brown eyes
Wishing all the waves away.
See them dancing in the moon
As everything goes your way.
I see your gray coat closed to all the weather
Because life has decided you needed snow.
It hides the lines you wish weren’t there
The frown you wish you didn’t show.
I see your life passing right before your eyes
As you wander down a road you don’t know.
With veracity you take up the march
But for all that, you forgot the show.
I see you dance in a ballroom full of women
Wearing black, because it is your trick.
You show them none of your emotion yet
Because you don’t know which one you’re going to pick.
I see your gray coat laying on the floor
Lifeless and still.
If it weren’t for this very moment
I’d swear she was just another thrill.
