The Fame track listing

"Brown Eyes" is a song written by Lou Reed for David Bowie, but he rejected the song, and in 2009 recorded a demo; so Lady Gaga and Rob Fusari (Team Love Child) in 2006 bought the copyright of this song. It is known as her most autobiographical track on The Fame. The concept behind the song is something most people can relate to, a love lost. The title of the song can be heard in "Again Again". Vocals for the song were recorded after "a lot of red wine and crying", in one single take, and first preformed live at The Mirage Club on August 18, 2008.

I wrote that song a long time ago and I had never had my heart broken like I had when I wrote that record. That was one of those 3 AM, crying in my apartment at the piano… one foot on the bed and one foot on the floor.

—Lady Gaga

Lyrics

What time is it?

In your Brown Eyes, I walked away
In your Brown Eyes, I couldn’t stay
In your Brown Eyes, you’ll watch her go
Then turn the record on
And wonder what went wrong, what went wrong?

If everything was everything but everything is over
Everything could be everything if only we were older
I guess it's just a silly song about you
and how I lost you and your Brown Eyes

In your Brown Eyes, I was feeling low
'Cause they’re Brown Eyes and you never know
Got some Brown Eyes but I saw her face
I knew that it was wrong
So baby, turn the record on
Play that song

Where everything was everything but everything is over
Everything could be everything if only we were older
I guess it's just a silly song about you
and how I lost you and your Brown Eyes,
Brown Eyes

Everything was everything but baby, it's the last show
Everything could be everything but it's time to say goodbye, so
Get your last fix and your last hit
Grab your old girl with her new tricks
Honey yah, it's no surprise that I got lost
in your Brown Eyes, in your Brown Eyes

Brow-eh-ow-eh-own, Brow-eh-ow-eh-own Eyes
Your Brown Eyes
Brow-eh-ow-eh-own, Brow-eh-ow-eh-own Eyes
Got some Brown Eyes
Brow-eh-ow-eh-own, Brow-eh-ow-eh-own Eyes
Your Brown Eyes
