"Eyes Wide Terrified" as written by and Alexander Richard Berrow Junior Elvis Washingto Laidley....
Pulling down the blinds, blocks what's left of the
Stars
So I'm tripping over bottles, tracing footsteps in the
Dark
Tomorrow would be a great day for broken glass
There are men in this room, who would pay for this
Missed calls to say I missed the morning's most.

You can't talk about it, you can't talk about it
Keeping (we) secrets (we) playing (can't talk about it)
Witches
Our bodies stretched out, our bodies stretched out
Casting sudden spells is not the answer
We'll build ourselves on hope and progress
Wake in water says your eyes wide terrified
We'll build ourselves on hope and fortune
I wouldn't say
Wouldn't say it, to your face, I'm sure

Your life is a song, your life is a song
Your life is a song, but not this one
Your life is a song, your life is a song
Your life is a song, but not this one (SURE!)
It talks about confidence, I'll give it a month if I'm
Lucky
I'm not that lucky, and these t-shirts don't fold
Themselves
But he falls asleep on her shoulder
Every shift they spend together, which is most nights

You can't talk about it, you can't talk about it
Keeping (we) secrets (we) playing (can't talk about it)
Witches
Your bodies stretched out, our bodies stretched out
Casting sudden spells is not the answer
We'll build ourselves on hope and progress
Wake in water says your eyes wide terrified
We'll build ourselves on hope and something
I wouldn't say
Wouldn't say it, to your face, I'm sure

Your life is a song, your life is a song
Your life is a song, but not this one (SURE!)
Your life is a song, your life is a song
Your life is a song, but not this one
It talks about confidence, I'll give it a month if I'm
Lucky
You're jealous friends have gotta get laid
The only thing that's stopping you is more of the same
Yeah you get it, you feel it, emotions, attention

Your life is a song, your life is a song
Your life is a song, but not this one
Your life is a song, your life is a song
Your life is a song, but not this one
Your life is a song, your life is a song
Your life is a song, but not this one
Your life is a song, your life is a song
Your life is a song, but not this one

    General CommentThat's not quite right, but pretty much, this is exact:

    Pulling down the blinds, blocks what's left of the stars
    So I'm tripping over bottles, tracing footsteps in the dark
    Tomorrow would be a good day for broken glass
    There are men in this room, who would pay for this
    Missed calls to say I missed the morning's most.

    You can't talk about it, you can't talk about it
    Keeping (we) secrets (we) playing (can't talk about it) witches
    Our bodies stretched out, our bodies stretched out
    Casting sudden spells is not the answer
    We'll build ourselves on hope and progress
    Wake in water says your eyes wide terrified
    We'll build ourselves on hope and fortune
    I wouldn't say
    Wouldn't say it, to your face, I'm sure

    Your life is a song, your life is a song
    Your life is a song, but not this one
    Your life is a song, your life is a song
    Your life is a song, but not this one (SURE!)
    It talks about confidence, I'll give it a month if I'm lucky
    I'm not that lucky, and these t-shirts don't fold themselves
    But he falls asleep on her shoulder
    Every shift they spend together, which is most nights.

    You can't talk about it, you can't talk about it
    Keeping (we) secrets (we) playing (can't talk about it) witches
    Your bodies stretched out, our bodies stretched out
    Casting sudden spells is not the answer
    We'll build ourselves on hope and progress
    Wake in water says your eyes wide terrified
    We'll build ourselves on hope and something
    I wouldn't say
    Wouldn't say it, to your face, I'm sure

    Your life is a song, your life is a song
    Your life is a song, but not this one (SURE!)
    Your life is a song, your life is a song
    Your life is a song, but not this one
    It talks about confidence, I'll give it a month if I'm lucky
    You're jealous friends have gotta get laid
    The only thing that's stopping you is more of the same
    Yeah you get it, you feel it, emotions, attention

    Your life is a song, your life is a song
    Your life is a song, but not this one
    Your life is a song, your life is a song
    Your life is a song, but not this one
    Your life is a song, your life is a song
    Your life is a song, but not this one
    Your life is a song, your life is a song
    Your life is a song, but not this one

    General CommentI'm gonna look MAJOR geek now but...

    I read in an article that Alexei was briefly 'obsessed' about putting "or something" into the lyrics of this song....
    So I reckon that it's not 'hope and something', it's 'hope OR something'
    very small pedantic not BUT Alexei clearly wanted it that way for a reason :-)

    General CommentI think it's "Awake at water's edge, your eyes wide terrified" the first time, then on the second time it's "Awake at water's edge, my eyes wide terrified"

    I remember seeing a video of them doing karaoke of EWT and I think those were the lyrics up there.
