i can forget my loneliness by chewing gum
stumble into several arms and strip away the day's decay
sadness is a way of life for bitter me
but don't you quote me the prophets
'cause i know it's wrong
but it's not for long
if i had eyes like river would you take some notice of me?
if i had lips like river would you talk to me?
now i walk the streets of london
and i look around at the people rushing by
where do they go? do they even know?
i hear they staple sequins to their sooty souls
just to tempt this acolyte from his real world
his only world
if i had eyes like river
would you take some notice of me?
if I had lips like river would you talk to me now?
talk to me now
talk to me now
talk to me now

    General Comment"Eye like River" is a reference to River Pheonix the movie star who had eyes (nice ones I guess)

    The song is about being noticed for one's looks and while that is shallow it is also exciting and gives a level of acceptance.
