Lyrics

Grey eyes
And her name was all she wrote
Caught in her sleep on the morning greyhound

Where'd she go?
No one knows
And the wind moans like an old piano

She wanted you to know
That the angels beat the demons in the end
And she'll see you
Time and again

And she told me
While your brain is growing
To feed you with milk and honey

Maybe then
You'll ward off her grey eyes
And take on golden ones instead

And together
We will hold on to that fire
I recall
She had a little light left inside her
And I swear
You look just like her

She wanted you to know
That the angels beat the demons in the end
And she'll see you
Time and again

She wanted you to know
That the angels beat the demons in the end
And she'll see you
Time and again
