04q: Tom Brady / Beck

Beck performs “Girl”

…..Tom Brady
…..Beck

Tom Brady: Once again – Beck.

Beck:
“I saw her, yeah I saw her
With a black tongue tied round the roses
A fist pounding on a vending machine
Toy diamond ring stuck on her finger
With a noose, she could hang from the sun
And point it out with the dark sunglasses
Walking crooked down the beach
She spits on the sand where their bones are bleaching.

And now I’m gonna steal her eye
She doesn’t even know what’s wrong
And now I’m gonna make her die
Take her where her soul belongs
And now I’m gonna steal her eye
Nothing that I wouldn’t try

My sun-eyed girl, my sun-eyed girl
My sun-eyed girl, my sun-eyed girl

I saw her, yea I saw her
With her hands tied back, her rags are burnin’
Calling out from a landfilled life
Scrawlin’ her name on the ceiling
Throw a coin in the fountain of dust
White noise, her ears are ringing
Got a ticket for my midnight hanging
Throw a bullet from a freight train leaving.

Now I’m gonna steal her eye
She doesn’t even know what’s wrong
Now I’m gonna make her die
Take her where her soul belongs
Know I’m gonna steal her eye
Nothing that I wouldn’t try.

My sun-eyed girl, my sun-eyed girl
My sun-eyed girl, my sun-eyed girl

[ break ]

My sun-eyed girl, my sun-eyed girl
My sun-eyed girl, my sun-eyed girl
My sun-eyed girl, my sun-eyed girl
My sun-eyed girl, my sun-eyed girl
My sun-eyed girl, my sun-eyed girl.”
