Angel eyes
You will sleep tonight
But do not be surprised
When you’re not waking

You gave away your soul
And the rest, they stole
But now it’s your own life
That you are taking

And all the world will rise in the morning
A sun will shine inside a winter sky
But you won’t be around to see that dawning
Oh, your heart will take the wind
And I will, once again, say goodbye

Sweet surprise
Look into the night
For it will be the last
You’ll be receiving

And when at last you fly
And kiss this world goodbye
You’ll be in my mind
When I am dreaming

And all the world will rise in the morning
A sun will shine inside a winter sky
But you won’t be around to see that dawning
Oh, your heart will take the wind
And I will, once again, say goodbye
Oh, say goodbye
Oh, say goodbye
Oh, say goodbye

    General Commentthis song makes me cry every time i hear it. the meaning is kind of obvious, it's about his brother who killed himself, and just singing about how he'll never wake up and see the sunrise again. I think he feels sort of melancholy about it though. Like he's happy that his brother is in a better place, "heaven"

    General CommentHow strange; I wrote a poem entitled "Angel Eyes" once.

    Jeff Mangum is a musical genius, just saying.
