Babybird /

Shellfish

Open your eyes. Open your eyes, I see the world in them.
Let me dab away the sleep with cotton wool balls.
Open your eyes, I see the world in them. Open your eyes.
Though I can't drive will you lend me your car
So I can drive through the tunnel of your long, long, long, long, long, long, long, long, long eyelashes.
Open, open, open your beautiful eyes.
Let me dab away the sleep with baby birds.
Let me dab away, dab away, dab away, dab away, dab a boo baa boo baa.
Open your eyes. Open your eyes. Open your eyes. Open your eyes.
I love you. I love you. I love you. You. Nobody else.
I see the world in your eyes.
Not like a mirror.
Not like a reflection.
You're nothing like me.
Oh you're nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing, nothing like me.
I am an empty shell. You are my mollusk.
And you say, 'Oh you shellfish fool, I'm not a mollusk, I'm a woman.'
