Bright Eyes- The Calendar Hung Itself

Does he kiss your eyelids in the morning when you start to raise your head?
And does he sing to you incessantly from the space between your bed and wall?
Does he walk around all day at school with his feet inside your shoes?
Looking down every few steps to pretend he walks with you.
Oh, does he know that place below your neck that is your favorite to be touched
And does he cry through broken sentences like I love you far too much?

It’s a “Fevers & Mirrors” kind of afternoon.

the great moments when 'Bright Eyes' is referenced in Bright Eyes songs
  • June On the West Coast:With eyes that burn so bright they make me pure
  • The Calendar Hung Itself:She had eyes bright enough to burn me they reminded me of yours
  • Jetsabel Removes the Undesirables:For the moon never shines and the stars never rise without bringing me dreams haunted by the ghost of those bright eyes
  • Patient Hope in New Snow:Your bright eyes burn through my exploding heart

Does he kiss your eyelids in the morning when you start to raise your head?
And does he sing to you incessantly from the space between your bed and wall?
Does he walk around all day at school with his feet inside your shoes,
Looking down every few steps to pretend he walks with you?
Oh, does he know that place below your neck that is your favorite to be touched,
and does he cry through broken sentences that I love you far too much?

Does he kiss your eyelids in the morning when you start to raise your head?
And does he sing to you incessantly from the space between your bed and wall? 
Does he walk around all day at school with his feet inside your shoes,
Looking down every few steps to pretend he walks with you?
Oh, does he know that place below your neck that is your favorite to be touched,
and does he cry through broken sentences that I love you far too much? 

This is my favorite out of all of Alex Pardee’s personal artwork. Not only because of the (obvious) Bright Eyes’ quote, but I just enjoy the little character as a whole. If I could (and didn’t want to spend the next four years of my life on it), I’d re-paint this large-scale, just because I can never seem to find a t-shirt or a print of this. Not that there would be, but I just think there should be.
