Bright Eyes - Arienette Lyrics




The fragile keep secrets, gathered in pockets,
And they'll sell them for nothing a cheap watch or locket
That kind of gold washes off.
And the sad act like lepers, they stick to the shadows
And long to ring bells of warning to tell of their coming
So that the pure can shut their doors.
And the angry are animals senseless and savage.
They act without order in logical lapses,
They stain their mouths with blood.
So take my hand, this barren land is alive tonight.
The corn has grown stalks that form a wall too high.
But the wind carries sounds that I can't see from beyond that line.
Then the stalks begin to sway
Oh stay with me Arienette until the wolves are away.
Yeah
Well the wicked are vultures, and they bake in the canyons.
They circle in sunlight and wait for their victims
To collapse and call to them.
And the desperate are water. They will run down forever
As they soak into silence mend up together,
In a dark and distant, dark and distant place.
So don't leave me here with only mirrors watching me.
This house it holds nothing but the memories.
And the moon it leaves silver but never sleep.
And then the silver turns to gray
Oh stay with me Arienette until the wolves are away.

    The fragile keep secrets, gathered in pockets,
    And they'll sell them for nothing a cheap watch or locket
    That kind of gold washes off.
    And the sad act like lepers, they stick to the shadows
    And long to ring bells of warning to tell of their coming
    So that the pure can shut their doors.
    And the angry are animals senseless and savage.
    They act without order in logical lapses,
    They stain their mouths with blood.
    So take my hand, this barren land is alive tonight.
    The corn has grown stalks that form a wall too high.
    But the wind carries sounds that I can't see from beyond that line.
    Then the stalks begin to sway
    Oh stay with me Arienette until the wolves are away.
    Yeah
    Well the wicked are vultures, and they bake in the canyons.
    They circle in sunlight and wait for their victims
    To collapse and call to them.
    And the desperate are water. They will run down forever
    As they soak into silence mend up together,
    In a dark and distant, dark and distant place.
    So don't leave me here with only mirrors watching me.
    This house it holds nothing but the memories.
    And the moon it leaves silver but never sleep.
    And then the silver turns to gray
    Oh stay with me Arienette until the wolves are away.

    You can see yourself in the mirror again on the reflection of the smart phone, just like the jewel case.

  3. kaylie

    the bass is insane

  4. Joshtvas

    I remember as a teenager blasting this in my room with my Dad yelling on the other side of the door, “ARE YOU OKAY?!”

    Cozette Ayers

    coolerjtv wow, me and my dad listen to this (and other sad songs) in the car and he and I sing all the words.

    Merely Mayhem

    you probably weren't

  7. Sean McNamara

    This hack ripped off An Angle soooo bad.

    Lucas Kibler

    Sean McNamara let’s hear your lyrics and music composition, then, since you seem to know so much about the craft.

    k d

    Sarcasm I assume

  8. Ma Azucena Pineda

    I found my goldmine

  9. Ma Azucena Pineda

    my goodness

  10. christina Lee

    this song has always been perfection.

  11. cool marxist lady

    after losing someone really close to me bright eyes makes a whole lot of fucking sense :\

  12. Amanda Mc Carthy

    whom is this lucky bitch Arienette? lol

    Folklore

    Amanda Mccarthy Arienette isn't a real person, no one really knows who she is. He never truly makes it clear in his interviews

    Joji Miller

    Kindra Armagh arienette is a name given to a girl who is absolutely perfect. She is beautiful, smart, funny, generous, loyal, helpful, loving etc etc. It could be anyone that conor thought to be his arienette.

    unfunny løser

    My name is Arienette and i am offended 😂

  13. Jillian Struebing

    My brother saw Bright Eyes a few years ago and he said Conor drank so much tequila he had to be helped off stage.

    genericusername

    i think he's better now than before

    Jillian Struebing

    +genericusername that's what I have heard

    Thais Circelli Ok

    i saw conor live quite a few years ago, probably 10 or so, i had this really sick picture of him drooling all over the mic, it was cool

    screeechbud

    @Thais Circelli Ok i saw him right after the people's key came out. he was super sober at that point from what i remember. mind you, i passed out in the audience cause apparently bass that shakes my chest and weed makes me faint lol. but i was back just as he came on haha

  14. Hekigan

    Greatest ever

  15. Oded Fried-Gaon

    very good.

  16. Maria Rivera

    Ummm best song ever? Arguably

    christina Lee

    Something Better88

  17. kmerr100

    jordan i have been trying to figure out how to describe bright eyes and u said exactly what i was searching for. thank you

  18. anibot

    I think I want to call my child Arienette. (((:

    unfunny løser

    anibot its my name 😂

  19. The Underground Man

    why is there an ad with some guy just shouting at me in spanish? if i wanted to get yelled at in spanish id walk outside

  20. Jay Phoenix

    "The desperate are water
    They'll run down forever
    And soak into silence
    And end up together...."

    ...just wondering.. where is it that Conor meant that they would converge?

  21. Punished Kewpie

    this song helps the cheap wine taste fine

  22. Jordan Zavesky

    Creates such emotion spilling through my veins <3

  23. veritas verit

    If youre a truthseeker (you know if you are) google "truth contest." Click the 1st link and read "The Present." Let's have the conversation that really matters.

  24. Danielle O

    "well the wicked are vultures, and they bake in the canyons. They circle in sunlight and wait for their victims...." I feel

  25. The Usurper

    1 person couldn't wait til the wolves are away. how can you dislike this song? its a classic

  26. ilylac

    @MysticGrant you mean the more complex, mature, and older you get, i think.

  27. Grant F

    It's funny how his early work (like this) actually sounds more complex and mature the older it gets.

  28. obsoletemachinery

    "so don't leave me here, with only mirrors watching me.."

    he actually sounds terrified. it's beautiful.

  29. TubeYouUser123ABC

    "Well the wicked are vultures, and they bake in the canyons.
    They circle in sunlight and wait for their victims
    To collapse and call to them. "
