song_sad eyes

in the movie vanilla sky, sofia serrano (penelope cruz) says this about julie gianni (cameron diaz): “I think she’s the saddest girl to ever to hold a martini.” and it hit me, fast and hard. so this entry is my toast to a great song i heard again after a million years and to a great movie that muddled up my brain and gave me a cozy hangover.

sad eyes
by josh rouse

Sudden start
Things are slow
You’re watching all these speeding cars
Moving like you wish you could
But oh, it’s too bad
Cos they drove away your happiness and good times

But I’m gonna get you into the light
And I’m gonna find a way that is right
And I’m gonna get you into the light
And make it okay

Sad eyes
You are the only one whose blue skies are grey
So don’t cry
You’ll be the only one to make them go
away

You’re so young
And so bored
You are staying now till late cos he was what your husband hated
But oh, it’s too bad
Cos he has stolen now all your happiness and good times

But I’m gonna get you into the light
And I’m gonna find a way that is right
And I’m gonna get you into the light
And make it okay

Sad eyes
You are the only one whose blue skies are grey
So don’t cry
You’ll be the only one to make them go away
Yeah you could make them go away

It took a lot of tears
But oh, you had to find those
Sympathetic years
The ones you left behind him (x2)

But I’m gonna get you into the light
And I’m gonna find a way that is right
And I’m gonna get you into the light
And make it okay

Sad eyes
You are the only one whose blue skies are grey
So don’t cry
You’ll be the only one to make them go away (x2)

Things are gonna go away
Yeah they’re gonna go your way
All about to go your way
