Prettiest Eyes

Beautiful South

 Line One  is the time

  when you,  you first stayed over at mine.

And we drank our first bottle of wine.

      Then we cried.

Two,  we're away,

 and we both,  we both had nowhere to stay.

Well the bus shelters always okay,

     when you're young.

Now you're older and I look at your face,

Every wrinkle is so easy to place,

And I only write them down just in case

You should die.

Just take a look at these crows feet,  just look

 Sitting on the prettiest eyes,

 Sixty twenty-fifth of Decembers,

 Fifty-nine fourth of Julys.

 Not through the age or the failure children,

 Not through the hate or despise.

 Take a good look at these crows feet,

 Sitting on the prettiest eyes


Line Three, I forget,
But I think, I think it was our first ever bet,
And the horse we backed was short of a leg --
Never mind

Four, in a park,
And the things, the things that people do in the dark.
I could hear the faintest beat of your heart
Then we did.


Just take a look at these crows feet, just look
Sitting on the prettiest eyes
60 25th of Decembers
59 4th of Julys
You can't have too many good times children
You can't have too many lines
Take a good look at these crows feet sitting on the prettiest eyes

Well my eyes look like a map of the town

And my teeth are either yellow or they're brown

But you'll never hear the crack of a frown when you are here

No you'll never hear the crack of a frown.

Of a frown...
