Bright Eyes - Simon & Garfunkel

 

Strophe) 

Is it a kind of dream 

Floating out on the tide 

Following the river of death downstream 

Oh is it a dream 

 

There´s a fog along the horizon 

A strange glow in the sky 

And nobody seems to know where you go 

And what does it mean

Oh oh is it a dream 

 

Refrain) 

Bright eyes 

Burning like fire 

Bright eyes 

How can you close and fail 

How can the light that burned so brightly 

Suddenly burn so pale

Bright eyes

 

 

 

 Strophe) 

Is it a kind of shadow 

Reaching onto the night 

Wandering over the hills unseen 

Or is it a dream 

 

There´s a high wind in the trees 

A cold sound in the air 

And nobody ever knows when you go 

And where do you start 

Oh oh into the dark 

 

Refrain) 

Bright eyes 

Burning like fire 

Bright eyes 

How can you close and fail 

How can the light that burned so brightly 

Suddenly burn so pale

Bright eyes

 

Refrain) 

Bright eyes 

Burning like fire 

Bright eyes 

How can you close and fail 

How can the light that burned so brightly 

Suddenly burn so pale

Bright eyes
