A Scale, A Mirror And Those Indifferent Clocks

Bright Eyes

Here is a scale, weigh it out and you will find easily
More than sufficient doubt that these colors you see
Were picked in advance by some careful hand 
       F                   G
With an absolute concept of beauty 
They are smeared and these blurs come in random order
To color the eyes of your former lovers
Hers were green like July except when she cried
         F             G
They were red

C Now I know a disease that these doctors can't treat Em You contract it the day you accept all you see Am Is a mirror and a mirror is all it can be
F G A reflection of something we're missing C And language just happened, it was never planned Em And it's inadequate to describe where I am Am In the room of my house where the light has never been F G Waiting for this day to end
F G And these clocks keep unwinding and completely ignore Em Am Everything that we hate or adore F G Once the page of a calendar is turned it's no more Em Am So tell me then, what was it for? F G C Oh tell me, what was it for?
