The Proximity of Death (Blue Eyed Boy)

by Jordan Reyne

on How The Dead Live (2009)

There's only 6 miles of bad road between you and I.
Only 6 miles of Bad Road and blue sky
If he gets there fast, you won't feel his breath
You won't catch my eye
But I count the time and I watch the days
Till he helps you fly.

There's only 3 feet of shallow water between you and I.
So it isn't deep â€" but its just enough to make sure that I.
O if you swam to the edge of things,
Where the earth meets the sky.
He will meet you there in the setting sun
With his empty eyes.

It's a short, sharp drop, past 3 flights of stairs between you and I.
So it isn't far, but you'd get there fast 'cause you're so fragile
Will he see me smile, as you taste his tongue?
As you vanish by
You will feel his hands, and they're cold like bone
But they're gone with time

How do you like your blue eyed boy?
How do you like your blue eyed boy?
