Jade Eyes

Jade Eyes

I wrote Jade Eyes after attending a Pretty Lights concert at the Showbox Sodo in Seattle on November 19th, 2010.  I wrote most of the lyrics that same night after getting home around 3 A.M.

These jade eyes are straight lies that bind us

These jade eyes are straight lies that bind us

These jade eyes

These jade eyes are straight lies that bind us

These jade eyes

These jade eyes are straight lies that bind us

These jade eyes

These jade eyes are straight lies that bind us

These jade eyes (x2)
