lyrics

HELICOPTER EYES

If I asked her for the method to her madness
she would smile and then fade away
I guess she thinks she must sacrifice her happiness
to play her politician games
She whispers wrath while we make our love
but I never let it get me down
‘Cause the truth comes out in the morning hours
when I call her by her secret name

Still she feels paranoid that I might
take her by surprise
So she runs the risk of having
helicopter eyes
There she falls again
There she falls . . .

What I’d like the most
walking along the windswept coast
is to take her by her little hand
To show her all the wonders of the ground beneath her feet
but her eyes are skyward
Feeling this way it’s not
revolutionary
but seeing her standing there
could just change everything about me

Still she feels paranoid that I might
take her by surprise
So she runs the risk of having
helicopter eyes
There she falls again
There she falls down to the ground
This time I’ll be there to catch her

She runs away
into the blue night
Stakes a claim
in the moonlight
Shakes the shadows
creeping up behind her
She disappears
Now no one can find her

Still she feels paranoid that I might
take her by surprise
So she runs the risk of having
helicopter eyes
There she falls again
There she falls down to the ground
This time I’ll be there . . .
. . . to catch her
