about

Seasonal Affective Disorder

lyrics

Winter brings a violet sky
And with that sky a violent mind
That thinks the kind of thoughts you'd never think a girl like me has got

Fantasies they fly away
My rosy cheeks they seem to gray
And though the world is beautiful
I look at it as cracked and dull

Lend me your eyes
Til this dead feeling dies
Til this tangle unties
Til my fallen hopes can rise
Oh please lend me your eyes
Oh please lend me your eyes
How long before this dead feeling dies

Snowflakes tumble to cement
I empathize with their lament
Spend your whole life falling down
Disintegrate or hit the ground
Open up my wounds with ice
Stitch them up with bad advice
Make me feel afraid inside and
Give me somewhere safe to hide

Lend me your eyes
Til this dead feeling dies
Til this tangle unties
Til my fallen hopes can rise
Oh please lend me your eyes
Oh please lend me your eyes
How long before this dead feeling dies

When I wake up in the morning
I hope I see a rainbow
When I wake up in the morning
I hope I see the sun

Poltergeist in my TV
Confirms my lack of sanity
Sends a message loud and clear
I'm driven by my sense of fear
Have another drink today
Think up clever words to play
Try your best not to display
Your naked soul in disarray

Lend me your eyes
Til this dead feeling dies
Til this tangle unties
Til my fallen hopes can rise
Oh please lend me your eyes
Oh please lend me your eyes
How long before this dead feeling dies

about

Sarah Burton Toronto, Ontario

Burton’s career started in 2006 with a broken heart, a broken down van, and a haphazard tour across Canada in a van named Lucky. This set the tone for an artist life driven by adventure, spontaneity, and a desire to connect with people from all walks of life. ... more
