"A Dark Eye" as written by and Rennie Sparks Brett Sparks....
In the parking lot where I waited alone
A white bird sat sleeping on the broken pay phone
And up came a black beetle dragging off a green fly
Underneath a parked car and then out of sight

And I felt a dark eye turn its gaze upon me
As if the earth, the earth could see

A dark eye, a dark eye, a dark eye fell on me

In that parking lot where a prairie once grew
And through the tall grass, the buffalo flew
I heard something crying way down below
Where the sewer lines snake around Indian bones

In that parking lot, cars baked in the sun
And somewhere down the road, the pop of a gun
I watched a red ant crawl up my shin
And I felt so sad until it bit my skin

A dark eye, a dark eye, a dark eye fell on me

    General Commenti created this account because your lyrics are wrong at my favorite part of this song...

    you have, "in that parking lot where a prayer, you once threw"

    it's, "in that parking lot where a prairie once grew"

    this is the song that got me hooked to this 'criminally over looked duo'.

    rennie's lyrics make me shiver through brett's beautiful baritone.
