Hey Blue Eyes

Bruce Springsteen
Language: English




They're holding the committee
Of treason and lies
Double speak and sedition
Then somebody dies
From the hills the smell of lilacs
Then the repeat of guns
She closes the window and draws the blinds
Her first touch sucks the air from my lungs

Hey blue eyes
Whatcha doing tonight
Hey blue eyes
Yeah, it's alright

She says in this house we've abandoned history
In this house there are no laws
Just the false taste of paradise
And then the fall
In this house the guilty go unpunished
The blood and silence prevail
Here the dead remain nameless
The nameless remain jailed

Hey blue eyes
Whatcha doing tonight
Hey blue eyes
Yeah, it's alright

In this house there's just the dust of bones
The basement's filled with liars
In this house our sons and daughters
Are spilled like wine
So come close my pretty darling
Let me feel your disease
Tonight I'll have you naked and crawling
At the end of my leash

Hey blue eyes
Whatcha doing tonight
Hey blue eyes
Yeah, it's alright

She says in this house it's so easy
To set a world on fire
All you need is the need and the money
And a soul full of reckless desire
Upstairs the landlord is dining
Here with his criminal friends
Don't worry they'll have the bags packed and be long gone
Before the real fucking begins

Hey blue eyes
Hey, whatcha doing tonight
Hey blue eyes
Yeah, it's alright

Hey blue eyes
Whatcha doing tonight
Hey blue eyes
Yeah, it's alright
