lyrics

Today the sky fronts pale blue which last night yielded stars;
I look sidelong at your face and see nothing.
Today the sky fronts pale blue which last night yielded stars;
I stare sidelong at your face and get nothing.

And I think of all the things I would do
If I didn't have to do everything perfectly:
Like make myself a fool just to catch your eye
Throw out the feed for bait but you're too wise.

You throw off a stare like a harsh winter glare
Til nobody wants to look at you, let alone talk.

Today the sky fronts pale blue which last night yielded stars;
I stare sidelong at your face and get nothing.
That is what you give at the expense of straddling a fence
Between the doing and the going of excuse and defense.
And I've seen too much evidence in your purse to ignore
That you'd take it or leave it behind on the floor.

You throw off a stare like a harsh winter glare
Til nobody wants to look at you, let alone talk.

Today the sky fronts pale blue which last night yielded stars;
I look sidelong at your face and see nothing.
Today the sky fronts pale blue which last night yielded stars;
I stare sidelong at your face and get nothing.
