The Shower Song

Recommended Posts

This goes out to anyone who was at the second Queen Elizabeth Hall gig in London last month. Whilst Regina's guitar was being tuned off-stage by her roadie, she said she would treat us to a tune that isn't normally heard outside of her shower.

She then sang a song about the colour of boys' eyes, but gave no title.

If you've ever shared a shower with Regina, and can enlighten us further, can you please do so?

Thanks

Mike

Was the song called "silly eye color generalizations"?

.

Here are the lyrics from www.reginaspektor.net

.

(I heard her sing this song at Tonic in NYC, but it was a shout out request, so clearly it has been sung a few times before.)

.

there are those boys with earthly eyes

their eyes are like the ground

you walk and walk, kicking up dirt

but they don't make a sound

and when they kiss you they sometimes leave them open

just to make sure you don't drop

yeah, the sweetest eyes, the truest eyes

are probably dark brown

there are those boys with golden hazel eyes

the color of weak tea

they spend the nights howling at the moon

to let go of the sea

the scope of their depth is terrifying, thrilling

you think you're finally free

when they capture you, cause golden eyes are as sticky as

honey from a bee

I'm drowning

but those with blue I shouldn't trust

cause I myself have blue

you fall for them so easy

you think you see right through

you take a leap thinking blue water is deep

when suddenly it's just gray rain

then puddles at your feet

will freeze to dirty ice

but summon them back up to clean salty blue water once again

confusing

blue eyes they change like the weather

blue sea, blue sky, blue paint

I wouldn't trust my own blue-eyed reflection

as far as I can throw that mirror

but these are just silly eye color generalizations

you shouldn't believe a word I've said

cause when you're lying in your bed

darkness round your head

your eyes might as well be polka-dotted or plaid

polka-dotted or plaid
