Haven't touched the floor today
Want the walls to go away
But there's a thought that's in my way
If I could leave then it could stay

The backs of photographs are snow-white
With a dead face on the other side
But I can't pay you any mind
I'm thinking of my mother's eyes

And green is the color of her eyes
Blue when they swell up and cry
But her heart would shatter if I tried
To jump the fence and leave her side

Couldn't think of anything at all
Except the pills that you have swallowed
Dissolving in your blood like sailboats falling
Off the edge of the world

Watched them go until they all had left me
Goodbye so long farewell goodbye
Good luck to you in all your drifting
I'm thinking of my mother's eyes

And green is the color of her eyes
Blue when they swell up and cry
But her heart would shatter if I tried
To jump the fence and leave her side
