Dawn Golden

There's some stars in my eyes
Your sister's high, peaking on pills in the alleyway
There's a mad death in your eyes
Warm light shudders in the glow of my heart
And the kids with black eyes shine bright in the morning light

Warm day in the sun
It keeps me balling up my fists for someone.
Why do you always plead
Keep me on my knees
Keep running for the train
But I guess I always worked better alone
With my black eyes shining in the sunset
Never give up.

There's some stars in your eyes.
The kids who shot Mikey are down low and telling their lies
Well he died here with me
But we're digging through his pockets
Singing "no one's ever going to be free"

We're singing hallelujah.

I'm sorry.

Are there stars
That the gods don't know about?
If there are
We'll be digging through their pockets til dawn

Are there lights
Lights that shine for pretty fools like you and me?

We're singing hallelujah.
