Black Eyes Blue

  • I stood alone in Trafalgar Square
    I looked around I didn't see you there
    Before they closed the roads I made it down to Hyde
    I just need you now, I need you by my side

    I know that there's no other way
    I know that there is nothing more that I can say
    Make my black eyes blue
    I fall for you

    Behind the trees, in front of Golden Gates
    I was never beholden to the hands of fate
    Consternation in the middle of my chest
    You know me better than the ones who know me best

    I know that there's no other way
    I know that there is nothing more that I can say
    Make my black eyes blue
    I fall for you

    London Eyes, they give me Russian looks
    Oh, this winter wind is all it took
    Lights are coming up just as the sun is going down
    This sentiment and all of it is all I want, I need you now

    We all need, a little red on our horizon, baby
    We all live and breathe
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh (red on my horizon)

    I know that there's no other way
    I know that there is nothing more that I can say (red on my horizon)
    Make my black eyes blue
    I fall

    Ooh, all I need, I need your red on my horizon, baby
    You make me live, you make me breathe
    Oh, oh, oh, oh, oh (red on my horizon)

    I know that there's no other way
    I know that there is nothing more that I can say (red on my horizon)
    Make my black eyes blue
    Make my black eyes blue (red on my horizon)
    Make my black eyes blue

  • Rockmebaby from Does It MatterThis song has completely grown on me. Hated it when I first heard it, then it went from there to now I cannot stop hearing it in my head, and I love it. Keepin' it fresh and different from Slip Knot and/or Stone Sour Corey T.
