There are those boys with earthly eyes
Their eyes are like the ground
You walk and walk, kickin' up dirt
But they don't make a sound

And when they kiss you, they sometimes leave 'em open
To make sure you don't drown
Yeah, the sweetest eyes, the truest eyes are probably dark brown

There are those boys with golden hazel eyes
The colour of weak tea
They spend their nights howlin' at the moon
To let go of the sea

The scope of their depth is terrifying, thrilling
You think you're finally free
When they capture you
'Cause golden eyes are as sticky as honey from a bee
I'm drownin'...

But those with blue I shouldn't trust
'Cause I myself have blue
You fall for them so easy
You think you see right through

You take a leap, thinking the water is deep
When suddenly it's just grey rain
Then puddles at your feet, they turn to dirty ice
But somehow they'll melt back to clean blue water once again
Confusing...

Blue eyes, they change like the weather
Blue sea, blue sky, blue pain
I wouldn't trust my own blue-eyed reflection
As far as I could throw that mirror
Bum ba bum bum...

But these are just silly eye-colour generalizations
You shouldn't believe a word I've said
'Cause when you're lying in your bed
Darkness 'round your head
Your eyes might as well be polka-dotted or plaid
Polka-dotted or plaid

    General CommentI like this song so much. Would green eyes fall into the "earthly eyes"? Green eyes are the best. Mine are green with gold flecks.

    General CommentI think this song is about how you can make generalizations about physical traits (or any traits, for that matter, I suppose) but really, it doesn't matter because, like Regina said, "When you're lying in your bed, darkness 'round your head, your eyes might as well be polka-dotted or plaid." Eye colors are just something that people see.
