"Cats Eyes" as written by and Fyfe Dangerfield Hutchins....
In a sandcastle far away from here
I was born with blue eyes - they disappeared
(There’s an angel where he likes to hide
There’s an angel where she likes to hide)

I came out in a street wearing cats’ eyes
And the stream never stopped, 'cause nobody lied
(There’s an angel where he needs to hide
There’s an angel where she needs to hide)

And I’m
Dying for you each day
You were the meaning of true
How did I ever lose you?
Dropped you in the sky
Black is not darker than white
A prison is colder than free
Angel, am I still me?
Tell me true
I lost my name in a war
I should have told you before
Somebody mentioned the score
Well I went running

I saw my lines, fly’s on zebra’s backs
City lust, lime rust water falls and attacks
(Snow fall in heaven, where they like to hide
Snow fall in heaven, where they like to hide)

And now I see why I’ve been thirsty for years
‘Cause they lead us back there with cold lunatic skill
(Snow fall in heaven, so they want to hide
They’re cold in heaven, so they want to love)

And I’m
Dying for you each day
You were the meaning of truth
Everything paired out on you
So I dropped you in the sky
Black is no further than white
A prison is colder than free
Angel, am I still me?
Take me back
I saw such things in my sleep
Creatures that taught me to speak
And sang me a tune
Sang me a tune

Everyone leaves you behind
Everyone leaves you behind
Everyone leaves you
Everyone leaves you behind
Behind

Well, I’m coming back to you now
Well, I’m coming back to you now
Well, I’m coming back to you now
Well, I’m coming back to you now
Well, I’m coming back to you now
Well, I’m coming back to you now
Well, I’m coming back to you now
Well, I’m coming back to you now

    General CommentI love this song. Guillemots are such masters at creating pretty pictures in my head with such beautiful use of instruments and lyrics. I would kill to write like this.

    Also, I'm pretty sure that "Cause they lead us back there with cold lunatic skill' is actually "Cause the leaders back there are called lunatics here'

    But thanks for putting these up, some bits I could barely comprehend, just a pleasing mush of syllables to me
