Yellow Is The Color Of Her Eyes

  • The bright August sun feels like yellow
    And the white of her eyes is so yellow
    The tiny lie I told to myself is making me hollow
    I've been choking out truths that I couldn't swallow

    I'm fallin' apart over a memory
    And the weight in my heart is getting too heavy
    'Cause every word is a nail that slips in slowly
    And I can't hammer it down enough to keep holding in

    And I could lie but
    It's never made me feel good
    Inside I'm still so blue
    Can't erase the hue
    It's just colored over

    I'm thinking of her from over the ocean
    See her face in the waves, her body is floating
    And in her eyes, like clementines, I know that she's fading
    And the light of the sun is only a daydream

    And I could lie but
    It's never made me feel good
    Inside I'm still so blue
    Can't erase the hue
    It's just colored over

    Loving you isn't enough
    You'll still be deep in the ground when it's done
    I'll know the day when it comes
    I'll feel the cold as they put out my sun
    Loving you isn't enough
    You'll still be deep in the ground when it's done
    I'll know the day when it comes
    I'll feel the cold as they put out my sun Writer/s: Sophie Allison
