Black Widow's Eyes Lyrics - The Who

Review The Song (1)



You jumped out of an alley
With surprise in your Black Widow's eyes
I was prepared to be unprepared
Been preparing for lies

I fell right in love with you
Into a thousand parts I blew
I fell right in love with you

I was caught in a corner
In recoil from a broken romance
Taking breath after one sudden death
I had a firm grip on my pants

I fell right in love with you
Through a hundred hearts you flew
I fell right in love with you

Strange that when infatuation calls
We think we've got real love in our life
It pumps like the pressure in the station hall
As the express-train thunders on by

I fell right in love with you
As the blood came blowing through
I fell right in love with you

Across the room, I saw your eyes
Black-windowed, looking back at me
You held a gun, as children cried
You touched some wires and shattered me

I was blown into the blue
There was nothing I could do
I fell right in love with you

I rose up to the station
Smelt your scent by the door
You'd stood waiting so patient
Just one wave - then no more

I fell right in love with you
There'd been nothing I could do
I fell right in love with you

Across the room, I saw your eyes
Black-windowed, looking back at me
You held a gun, as children cried
You touched some wires and shattered me.

I Fell Right In Love With You | Reviewer: Xander | 5/20/2007

The first song on the album "endless Wire" that I loved and repeated over and over.

It tells a story about the awkwardness of falling in love, and how it can hit you at the most unusual times

The meaning isn't that starightforward, but it's about a man in the middle of a mascre, who's hoplding a child, and sees a suicide bomber. He then notices that she is female and remembers falling in love with her eyes just before she blows him, her and the child up.

Rodger acted as editer for the album, and Pete sent him a selection of songs, so that he'd choose the ones for the final cut. When he heard this one, he knew exactly what it was about, I personally thought it was being more metaphorical than it was, so it hit me at a more personal level

As amazing a song as it is, I cannot concentrate while listening to it, as it was so addictive when I first heard it, that I played it to death
