Sometimes you encounter a song that blows your mind away. Relationships Look Closer In Rear View Mirrors (inspired by the epic movie Eternal Sunshine Of The Spotless Mind) is such a song. The guy who wrote it, Trevor Perfect, has a project called Red Eye that showcases his songwriting and this song is without a doubt the crown jewel. RLCIRVM has some production and arrangement issues, but the lyrics are top notch, the melody is genius in its simplicity and the featured singer (Heidi Vogel) is absolutely phenomenal. Check it out:

Relationships Look Closer In Rear View Mirrors

Play

Lyrics

Out in the half light,
Under yellow hue,
Nothing now seems as before,
For the same reason, a battered wife returns,
I convince myself,
That things have changed.

My mind plays tricks on me,
Shuffles memory cards,
Deletes the pain and
Goes into spin.
Rose tinted glasses,
Shield my mind’s eye,
My memories fade from black to gray.

Relationships look closer in rear view mirrors.

Chorus:
Bleed out of me,
Leave and set me free,
Place the leeches on my forehead,
Bleed out of me.

Let me cherry pick
In the warm sun,
And touch the ripe fruit,
Of the past,
Bring me a sip of,
Those claret lips again,
Smell your bouquet,
Drink you in.

From semi precious,
To cutting diamond,
From false pearl,
To this fool’s gold.
I throw myself in,
Deep seas of memories,
But crystal blue sheen,
Distorts my eyes.

Relationships look closer in rear view mirrors.

Chorus

Let me reverse time,
Start with this misery,
Now dark and distant,
These final days,
Our final memory,
Is love at first sight,
Our final moment,
That sweet first kiss.

Relationships look closer in rear view mirrors.

Chorus:
Bleed out of me,
Let the blood run free,
Place the leeches on my black heart,
Bleed out of me.
