Bright Eyes I Know You Lyrics

Last updated: 01/14/2011 10:00:00 AM

Walking with you through the courtyard
Where everything is marble and smooth
You said the idea of perfection
Was just fundamentally cruel

and talked about joining the circus
and trading your face for a mask

Oh I know you, want to
I just don't believe that you can

We made quite a pair in the morning
We both tend to traffic in dreams
Seeing it now from the outside
You kept all your dark ones from me

And said you plan to go rambling
As you sat on that big window sill

Oh I know you, want to
I just don't believe that you will

You long to go hide in the bramble
Or fall off the face of the earth
you wish you could live with the beggars
on the steps of some crumbling church

you say you'd like to go hungry
but the truth is you just had your fill

Oh I know you, want to
I just don't believe that you will

On Sundays you stroll through the market
And feel like you traveled through time
Buying back all your possessions
That were stolen from some former life
Return to me tied in a corset
To say "don't you know who I am?"

Oh I know you, want to
I just don't believe that you can
Yes I know you, want to
I just don't believe that you can

And trying to make an invention
Something the worlds never seen
To sweep away all of the trouble
And leave the place shiny and clean

Patent your brave new creation
And hold it right there in your hand

Oh I know you, want to
I just don't believe that you can

I waited for you at the landing
The water was crystal and calm
All these ideas of forever
Are just fundamentally wrong

You say that your love makes you honest
Then you're caught with your hand in the till

Oh I know you, want to
I just don't believe that you will
Yes I know you, want to
I just don't believe that you will
