Track Name: Raven's Eyes
Raven’s Eyes

I’m cooler than an iceberg
I don’t want to feel your heat
Show your two hands to me
You won’t do me wrong

I’m watching you with raven’s eyes
I can feel the heat from you
yet I know you’re cold as gelato
Show me what you’re made from
but stay away from me

Am I supposed to turn to you
embrace you renew you
You’re thinking you fooled me
I’m staring right through you
and hands on the table
I think that I’m able to resist
your confidence trick

And I’m watching you with raven’s eyes
Confident that your disguise
will not be fooling me

I’m cooler than an iceberg
Still I feel my feathers burn
I don’t want to yearn for you
You’re hotter than heatwave
There’s something in the air
so stay away
