"Green Eyes" as written by and Nathan Daniel Williams....
Green eyes, I'd run away with you
Green eyes, 'cause I'm a fool
I try running away

I'm just not fast enough
I'm just not fast enough

My, my own friends
Hate my guts
So what? Who gives a fuck?

Green eyes, I'd run away with you
Green eyes, 'cause I'm a fool
I try staying away

I'm just not man enough
I'm just not man enough

My, my own friends
Hate me
But I don't give a shit
Sky high
Well I fly high, lately
Soar high, soar right through it

Green eyes, I'd run away with you
Green eyes, 'cause I'm a fool
I try running away

I'm just not fast enough
I'm just not man enough

I would try and understand
I would try and understand
That I'm to blame
'Cause I'm so lame

I'm just not man enough
I'm just not man enough

My, my own friends
Hate me
But I don't give a shit
Fly high
Well I fly, lately
Soar high, soar right through it

    General CommentOkay, here's what I think it is: "Sky High, well I fly high, lately. So I'll, soar right through it." It's about a guy smoking so much weed that friends think he's lame cuz hes always high. And how does he deal with it? Smokes more weed.

    General Comment"My own friends hate me
    but I don't give a shit."

    The perfect line for Wavves. Especially after the whole Barcelona thing. Love it.

    General CommentBoth good theories, I guess its which one relates more back to yourself when listening. To me though its about loosing your mates to girl.. Great Tune

    General Commenti think its about a girl, i hope so anyway. doesn't seem like he really cares to run away from weed and it means more to me a girl is more relatable.
