Sometimes
Sometimes I get so sad
Sometimes I feel almost heavenly but
Baby I mostly feel mad
Yeah, baby, you just make me mad
Linger on, your pale blue eyes
Linger on, your pale blue eyes

It was good what we did yesterday
And I'd do it again
The fact that you're insane
Only proves that you're my best friend
Well, I will never fuck anyone else again
Linger on, your pale blue eyes
Linger on, your pale blue eyes

Thought of you as my mountain top
I thought of you as my peak
Thought of you as everything that I couldn't keep
Yeah, that I had but I couldn't keep
Linger on, your pale blue eyes
Linger on, your pale blue eyes

You explode inside of me
Yeah you explode my heart
I never had nothing anywhere so the end is where I start
Because I'm real
Linger on, your pale blue eyes
Linger on, your pale blue eyes

    General Comment:This song means a lot to me. It reminds me of someone who i used to love, and who used to love me. He had blue eyes...and everything Courtney sings about seems relevant. I have a relationship with someone else now and some of the lines still apply to me. I love it when you can relate to songs. I didn't know this was a cover but i love the words.

    General Comment:I didn't appreciate this cover and the distorted vocals until I sorta broke up with a guy I adore who has pale blue eyes. The way she screamed out "pale blue eyes" just was the perfect accompanient to my pain. and now I love this cover.
