Vireo's Eye Lyrics

Song Meaning
Verse 1
A loose, and hazy time
When you were not my Clementine
And I was not your diamond's eye
Verse 2
Bereft, as daisies lie
For our love was not lost in style
You were strong, I was a child
Verse 3
We, we're not kings here,
We're not kings here
We're just strangers
Verse 4
And Love, has died in song
Carried down by ancient tongues
Ferried around the water's thrum
And winds, along a line
Along a whirl, a lonely girl
Verse 5
To be, to see, to sweat, and bleed
To fall on your sword-on your sword
On your word
Verse 6
We, we're not kings here,
We're not kings here
We're just strangers
Verse 7
Be still, by my side
For you are not my Clementine
And I am not your diamond's eye
To Sleep!
Verse 8
By right of you, I can't endure
In the light of things, I can't ignore
In spite of all the rose's thorns, and hopeless works
Verse 9
We, we're not kings here,
We're not kings here
We're just strangers
Verse 10
We, we're not kings here,
We're not the kings here
We're just strangers
Verse 11
We, we're not kings here,
We're not kings here
We're just strangers
Verse 12
We, we're not kings here,
We're not the kings here
We're just strangers
And angels
