She’s been dancing in a topless bar
And she's doing well so far
She is working to earn her own dollar
‘Cause the fortune teller didn't talk about stars

CHORUS
She has black and white eyes
A mind full of vintage squibs
She has black and white eyes
A mind full of cheering lives

She needs something
To keep her feet on the ground
‘Cause when she's flying around
She never wants to come back down
She lost her smile in ’95
When she woke up on the back seat of a studded car

CHORUS

'think I lost her at 24
When she started to lock herself up behind the bathroom door

All along the white line
She can travel back in time
All along the white line

All along the white line
She can travel back in time
All along the white line

I’m on my way looking up today
Never mind if it could be worthing
Tuesday flies away

    General CommentOne of the most underrated indie artist of the past few years! 3 awsome albums! Plus a french guy making great indie music is rare (I'm french and have to bear ugly french music eurk!)

    Anyway this song is just beautiful with its soothing melody and lyrics about a desperate girl he lost. The girl in his song makes me think of the girl Forrest Gum is in love in the eponym flick!
