Billions Of Eyes
Lady Lamb Lyrics


when gravity's a palm pushing down on your head
like the devil's got a paw dug in your shoulder
and the other one is rubbing your back
but the kitchen in the new place has a window
yeah you can grow basil on the sill
maybe you can call your neighbors by name now
berries on the dash is the sweetest kind of living
Still this feels like eating the meat of the mountain
It's all grit and gristle i can't chew and swallow,
I'm gnawing my way back home
the clouds look a lot like wool gone through the wash
I check my phone for the time but I still wear my watch
yeah i’m confused about how i’m supposed to connect to anything now
the kind of high I like is when I barely make the train
And the people with a seat smile big at me because they know the feeling
and for a millisecond we share a look like a family does
like we have inside jokes
like we could call each other by little nicknames
and I could tell the story of how
My great grandmothers' sister was deemed a saint
how they exhumed her body after years of being buried
and they found she hadn't even begun to sully
so they moved her again, straight into the Vatican
I think of all the billions of eyes
all looking at something different at the same time
and I feel nauseous
some days i can only see into my suitcase
it's got everything I need
plus some superstitious things I may also need
"music soothes the savage beast"
the pilot says to me and he asks me to sing
but now is not the time
I just want to fall into a pile of warm laundry
i just wanna keep very very quiet yeah
it’s June where you sleep, July where I land
thought I saw you on the platform in Amsterdam
and I nearly missed my train
and I felt so defeated til I jumped on to see all the warm smiles were for me
I made my train and it made me so happy
I made my train and it made me forget everything
it made me forget, made me forget made me forget made me forget everything
it made me forget made me forget made me forget made me forget made me forget everything

This was one of my favorite 13 songs of 2015! I still like it very much and listen a lot to it! Aly her album After was my best album of 2015 together with I Declare nothing of Tess Parks! This songs means a lot to me! It resonates so much with me! I think because of Aly her special voice and her unique personallity! I had a lot of times the last part of this song in my head all the time and I don't know why. The part with: "It makes me forget, it makes me forget, it makes me
forget everything"


I saw Aly one time live on tuesday 22 September 2015 in Merleyn Nijmegen The Netherlands and I still have the concert poster hanging in my flat! It was such a good concert! I have seen 400-500 concerts in the last 10 years, but the concert of Aly is in my top 3 concerts of all time! It was such a special experience to see Aly live! She was so good and the lyrics where also very good! I was totally aware of the lyrics and it made a huge impact on me! I felt so touched by the music of Aly that I even lost the fear of dead, because I was in such a special consciousness because of Aly and her music. It was a very big mystical experience
and I am very gratefull to Aly that she brought me in that consciousness with her music!


It was also very kind of her that I could on the picture with her after the concert! I have printed that photo and it hangs in my flat and it brings me a lot of joy everytime I see the picture! I hope to see Aly again in Nijmegen one day!

When gravity’s a palm pushing down on your head

Like the devil’s got a paw dug in your shoulder

And the other one is rubbing your back

But the kitchen in the new place has a window

Yeah you can grow basil on the sill

Maybe you can call your neighbors by name now


Berries on the dash is the sweetest kind of living

Still this feels like eating the meat of the mountain

It’s all grit and gristle I can’t chew and swallow,

I’m gnawing my way back home

The clouds look a lot like wool gone through the wash

I check my phone for the time but I still wear my watch

Yeah i’m confused about how i’m supposed to connect to anything now


The kind of high I like is when I barely make the train

And the people with a seat smile big at me because they know the feeling

And for a millisecond we share a look like a family does

Like we have inside jokes

Like we could call each other by little nicknames

And I could tell the story of how

My great grandmother’s sister was deemed a saint

How they exhumed her body after years of being buried

And they found she hadn’t even begun to sully

So they moved her again, straight into the Vatican

And I feel nauseous

Some days I can only see into my suitcase

But now is not the time

I just want to fall into a pile of warm laundry

I just wanna keep very very quiet yeah


It’s June where you sleep and July where I land

Thought I saw you on the platform in Amsterdam

And I nearly missed my train

And I felt so defeated ’til I jumped on to see all the warm smiles were for me

I made my train and it made me so happy

I made my train and it made me forget everything

It made me forget, made me forget made me forget made me forget everything

It made me forget made me forget made me forget made me forget made me forget everything

being under the radar doesnt begin to describe the recognition she deserves

Nashid Taylor

Yess loving Lady Lamb !!

Puerto Riconnect

This video makes me sentimental even though these aren't my memories.

S4M H

this song makes my insides want to explode- i get filled with such a desire for what's beyond... thank you Lady Lamb!

Sophia

A friend recommended me this song for the feeling you get when you take the bus and i have since recommended it to other friends of mine--i like thinking about the gentle love of recommending songs to a loved one, and the family tree it creates

Vegan ForLife

Something so special about this track... she seems so comfortably energetic. But it's better than that.

Ezequiel Velasquez

I can't stop listening .-.

Fog smog

I love how the lyrics emphasizes the singing

Meg F

met her and kristain, the tallest man on earth last night. such talented, wonderful sweethearts of human beings! I'll never forget it ♡

Robin Wood

These might be my favourite lyrics of all time. The way she describes these small things and how they make her feel a bit overwhelmed ("I'm confused about how I'm supposed to connect to anything now", "I just wanna fall into a pile of warm laundry") really resonates with me. And the conclusion, that in the end it's all alright and beautiful, I just love it all. And then I haven't even mentioned the music omggjkezojf
