Alice Phoebe Lou Mother’s Eyes Lyrics

Sweet talking my way through another funny day

I’m not here in the first place

I’ve been replaced

Haven’t quite met this new self of mine

Tell me it’ll all be fine

Tell me I don’t need to say the lines

I’m fine getting stoned alone

With all of this time

Maybe I’ll finally be mine

Dressing myself for the day

Like I’m on my way to the grand parade

I catch my eye in the mirror

And smile back at myself

Opened up some boxes that are filled

With pieces of me

All of those years trying to squeeze

Into boxes that didn’t fit all of me

I realize what it all means

When I’m looking into mother’s eyes

I’m looking into mother’s eyes

‘Cause I’m sitting in the corner of my mind

I don’t mean to sit here so much of the time

Tears rolling I’m shaking but I’m fine

I’ll be running into you all the time

I want you but I don’t want you to be mine

I want you but I don’t want you to be mine

Feels like the paradox of my life

Feels like I’ll get there one step at a time

We’ve been balancing on the finest line

Loving you’s the cure and the crime

Loving you’s the cure and the crime

The words are there they’re knocking at our teeth

I’m feeling bare and hot head to feet

I’ve got nowhere to go and no one to meet

I see it now I see my heart beat

I see it now I see what I need

To be sitting in the corner of my mind

To be sitting in the corner of my mind

Sitting in the corner of my mind

Sitting in the corner of my mind

Sitting in the corner of my mind

Sitting in the corner of my mind

Sitting in the corner of my mind

Sitting in the corner of my mind
