"You Wear Those Eyes" as written by and Ric Ocasek....
You wear those eyes that never blink
You always were the missing link
You paint your mouth, you let me know
You really are the only show

Just take your time
It's not too late
I'll be your mirror
You won't hesitate
I'm easy to be found
Whenever you come down

You got that walk, you do the stroll
You make me lose my ground control
You got that look I can't resist
Like something missing, never kissed

Just take your time (just take your time)
It's not too late (it's not too late)

I'll be your mirror (just take your time)
So you won't hesitate
I'm easy to be found
Whenever you come down

You do the pogo without the bounce
You got the name I can't pronounce
You fall in love (you fall in love) you like the sting
You make believe (you make believe) it's everything

Just take your time (just take your time)
It's not too late (it's not too late)
I'll be your mirror (just take your time)
So you won't hesitate
I'm easy to be found
Whenever you come down

(Just take your time)
(It's not too late)
(Just take your time)
(It's not too late)
(Just take your time)
(It's not too late)
(Just take your time)
(It's not too late)
(Just take your time)
(It's not too late)
(Just take your time)
(It's not too late)
(Just take your time)
(It's not too late)
(Just take your time)
(It's not too late)

    General CommentI think this song is Ric Ocasek's ode to Paulina Poriskova, or one of them. It seems he's posing these things to her while she's up on the catwalk during the height of her modeling career. The song is mostly transparent with little to interpret, but the line that clued me in is:

    "You got the name I can't pronounce"

    Not that Poriskova is hard to pronounce, but hey, I'm stretching here. What the hell else would it be about?

    Other elements that make me think it's about Paulina:

    1) "You wear those eyes that never blink." She has beautiful eyes that, for a model on a runway, are supposed to look austere and unblinking.

    2) "You really are the only show." Aye, he's really into her, and no one else. This was composed, surely, when he was courting her. Or just met her.

    3) "Just take your time..." Yes, see, he's courting her... and he's a rockstar.

    4) "I'm easy to be found / whenever you come down..." As in come down off the metaphorical catwalk. And: 'I'm famous enough to be easily found.'

    I would love to ask Ric Ocasek if this song was written about his wife. Stephen Colbert and I are thankful for his art.
