Regina Spektor - Silly Eye Color Generalization Lyrics

There are those boys with earthly eyes
Their eyes are like the ground
You walk and walk, kicking up dirt
But they don't make a sound
And when they kiss you, they sometimes leave them open
Just to make sure you don't drop
Yeah, the sweetest eyes, the truest eyes
Are probably dark brown

There are those boys with golden hazel eyes
The color of weak tea
They spend their nights howling at the moon
To let go of the sea
The scope of their depth is terrifying, thrilling
You think you're finally free
When they capture you, 'cause golden eyes are sticky as
Honey from a bee

I'm drowning

But those with blue, I shouldn't trust
'Cause I myself have blue
You fall for them so easy
You think you see right through
You take a leap, thinking blue water is deep
When suddenly it's just grey rain
Then puddles at your feet, they freeze to dirty ice
But somehow they melt back to clean blue water once again

Blue eyes, they change like the weather
Blue sea, blue sky, blue paint
I wouldn't trust my own blue-eyed reflection
As far as I could throw the mirror

But these are just silly eye color generalizations
You shouldn't believe a word I said
'Cause when you're lying in your bed
Darkness 'round your head
Your eyes might as well be polka-dotted or plaid
Polka-dotted or plaid

Regina Spektor Silly Eye Color Generalization Comments
  1. 5.... ....

    she is so shameless and lovely. If you don't love her you're going to hell

  2. P.... S....

    Whomever had the idea of playing "Wallet" in the background of the lost luggage bit, it's the human of the year.

  3. J.... F....

    Coming back to this video over and over again 💜 Regi is just the best

  4. M.... ....

    I was at this show! It was fucking incredible. Ugh. I miss London.

  5. B.... A....

    Incredible! ♥ WOOOWWWWW

  6. A.... ....

    haha i wonder why does it have swedish subtitles xD

  7. K.... A....

    Why can't I sound like this ugh

  8. M.... W....

    This is the perfect lullaby.

  9. T.... ....

    I can't wait to see her live next week aaaahhh !!!!

  10. c.... ....

    always stuns me again and again how she can memorize this entangled text without a melody (°.)

  11. B.... B....

    with a voice like this, who needs instruments

  12. K.... C....

    If I was at all upset or had anxiety over losing my luggage in London, it would be instantly remedied upon finding out that I had Regina Spektor's or that the goddess herself had held my suitcase...

  13. S.... B....

    haha agreed

  14. S.... B....

    "and im gonna get my shit" :) god i love you regina

  15. C.... N....

    She's very zen about having lost her luggage. I would be weeping.

  16. S.... B....

    But what is 'good looking'? She certainly is sexy, and maybe that is her weird cuteness. Shes certainly more refreshing than some female artists!

  17. N.... P....

    jesus christ, the things i would do for regina spektor

  18. M.... G....

    lol @her last sentence. "and I'm gonna get my shit"

  19. g.... ....

    @dave franc she is beautiful so looks are no problem I think it's her music, they are not just mindless songs that the masses would enjoy they are songs that tell a story that have many different interpitations different meanings to different people

  20. k.... ....

    i love how she says truly

  21. d.... s....

    I have a Theory: She's just not good looking or sexy like most of the popular skanks who sing, also her music is kinda weird, I like it but most of the people around me don't, and some of her songs are just silly.

  22. n.... ....

    classic... can't stop watching these live performances tonight.

    I saw her support kings of Leon years ago, and it's still one of my favourite gigs ever.
    people who say there are no decent musicians these days don't look very hard.

  23. G.... r....

    'Keep it Secret, keep it safe', if everyone knew, you'd never get a concert ticket, be grateful. Regi's THE BEST!

  24. R.... G....

    i have golden hazed eyes regina , Marry Me!!

  25. h.... ....

    I love how she doesn't need any instrumental in the background to perform a song beautifully

  26. K.... ....

    I have golden hazel eyes, and she described me to a T. Pretty accurate generalization... :)

  27. N.... L....

    How can this not be more known? How is Regina not better known?!?!?!?!

  28. A.... ....
