I let you slip through my fingers
Don't even know if I can remember
How I got here in the first place
My mind wanders off it's somewhere
Out in space
Laziness it consumes you
There's nothing you can say
There's nothing you can do.
Simply put I'm letting go
I've got my money on the wrong hand this time
Coast to coast been avoiding all your phone calls
Trying to figure out how I fucked it up this time
Without a penny in my pocket
There's nothing I can say
There's nothing I can do.

Bright eyes
I'm holding you close but you seem so far
Why should I try?
I know I'll never get that far.

    General CommentThe line is...

    My mother told me me "Boy, don't be so obscene. Button up your shirt, it looks nice like that." That's just not me. That's me in gasoline, 'cause I'm not going out like that tonight.

    General CommentHey bright eyes, holding you close but you seem so far.
    That could go either way. They either are physically seperated. Or, together in an embrace or what have you, but he can sense the distance. I take the latter of the two. Everything he wants is right in front of him, but he doesn't take advantage of it while he has the chance.
    Laziness, it consumes you. There's nothing I can say, there's nothing I can do.
    He's probably accustomed to failure.
    But I like the 'hey bright eyes..' lyrics, it's such a blatant statement that "yeah, I know I'm going to fail". Which is a though that occurs all to often to me.
    Sweet song though, I dig it.

    General Commentthis song reminds me of my boyfreind, because he said it reminded him of me, he calls me bright eyes even before he herd the song, and we were real close freinds b4 we went out, and he felt like we were so close bc we knew everything about each other, but so far, bc we werent together...so maybe thats what Hot Rod ment, when they wrote the song.
