Rakei, Jordan - Eye To Eye Lyrics




It's the birth of a star, earlier than sunset
It's the galaxy's water, flowing like a river bed
It's the rain, oh the rain
Drown upon this summer day
Grown into a super nova
Back to where we used to play
It's an infinity, as it feasts on time
'Cause it constantly leaps, perpetual design
'Cause we worship the key
The tide is going out now
As we look out to sea
Legs sprawled and head down

Yes they shine bright like a million, let them bleed twice for a minute
Pleasure to have met you, you're my star tonight
To have felt this oh sublime, like a grain of sand traveling through time
Pleasure to have met you, you're my star tonight
Yes they shine bright like a million, let them bleed twice for a minute
Pleasure to have met you, you're my star tonight
To have felt this oh sublime, like a grain of sand traveling through time
Pleasure to have met you, you're my star tonight

We don't see eye to eye, we don't see eye to eye
We don't see eye to eye, we don't see eye to eye

The time it took to realize
What you say bears sweet on my soul
Compliments with no surprises
Making routes straight to their home

We don't see eye to eye, we don't see eye to eye
We don't see eye to eye, We don't see eye to eye

Rusty nail showing bruises
Not quite holding firmly now
Complications, falling useless
Alone until I work it out

We don't see eye to eye, we don't see eye to eye
We don't see eye to eye, We don't see eye to eye

    It’s the birth of a star, earlier than sunset
    It’s the galaxies water, flowing like a river babe
    It’s the rain, oh the rain
    Drown upon this summer day
    Growing into a super nova
    Back to where we used to play
    It’s an infinity, as it feast on time
    ‘Cause it constantly leams perpetual design
    ‘Cause we worship the ?keeper?
    The tide is going out now
    As we look out to sea
    Legs sprawled and head down




    Yes they shine bright like a million, let them blink twice for a minute
    Pleasure to have met you, you’re my star tonight
    To have felt this oh sublime, Like a grain of sand travelling through time

    Yes they shine bright like a million, let them blink twice for a minute
    Pleasure to have met you, you’re my star tonight
    To have felt this oh sublime, Like a grain of sand travelling through time
    Pleasure to have met you, you’re my star tonight

    Not quite opting fury now

  32. Truong Laivan

    Where are the shooting locations?

    Harry Griffiths

    To me the beach area looks like Port Talbot in South Wales, it looks just like the steel works which are right be the coast, could be wrong tho.

    '...and the rain, Oh the rain.' love that part and your tone just makes my heart melt.

  54. MjklSimpson

    (this is my opinion)
    the first section of the music gets me to a feeling higher than most of "good music" there is today.
    but as soon as it ends and the other section starts it kinda kills the atmosphere that it was building up since the beginning of the song.

    still it's one nice song

  55. bubbyj

    This is phenomenal.

    It’s the birth of a star, earlier than sunset
    It’s the galaxy's water, flowing like a river bed
    It’s the rain, oh the rain
    Drown upon this summer day
    Grown into a super nova
    Back to where we used to play
    It’s an infinite deep, as it feasts on time
    ‘Cause it constantly leaps, perpetual design
    ‘Cause we worship the key
    The tide is going out now
    As we look out to sea
    Legs sprawled and head down

    Yes they shine bright like a million, let them bleed twice for a minute
    Pleasure to have met you, you’re my star tonight
    To have felt this oh sublime, like a grain of sand travelling through time
    Pleasure to have met you, you’re my star tonight
    Yes they shine bright like a million, let them bleed twice for a minute
    Pleasure to have met you, you’re my star tonight
    To have felt this oh sublime, like a grain of sand travelling through time
    Pleasure to have met you, you’re my star tonight

    We don’t see eye to eye, we don’t see eye to eye
    We don’t see eye to eye, we don’t see eye to eye
    The time it took to realise
    What you say bears sweet on my soul
    Compliments with no surprises
    Making routes straight to their home

    We don’t see eye to eye, we don’t see eye to eye
    We don’t see eye to eye, We don’t see eye to eye

    Rusty nail showing bruises
    Not quite holding firmly now
    Complications, falling useless
    Alone until I work it out

    We don’t see eye to eye, we don’t see eye to eye
    We don’t see eye to eye, We don’t see eye to eye
