The Fading

A spring remembered, the taste of gin
An eyelet light upon our skins
Your form it lingers, I trace just where you've been
The songs we sang I'll sing again
 
When it breaks down
Oh, babe, let's try
To see the beauty in all the fading
 
I saw the river thick with mud
Break through the banks and run
And I confess I liked it, I cheered the flood
When the waters hit the walls and won
 
When it breaks down
Oh, babe, let's try
To see the beauty in all the fading
 
The roads are endless, they seem to grow
Vines that wind around the world
And though I hate it to leave my home
I love that car when I need to go
 
When it breaks down
Oh, babe, let's try
To see the beauty in all the fading
 
And old Kentucky stays in my mind
It's sweet to be five years behind
That's where I'll be when the seas rise
Holding my dear friends and drinking wine
 
When it breaks down
Oh, babe, let's try
To see the beauty in all the fading
When it breaks down
When the stakes get high
To see the beauty in all the fading
 
Bedankt!

I hear something different for the second line, I think it should be "An island light upon our skin."

I'm not sure what "eyelet light" would mean, and the word skin is only plural if the skins have been removed from a body (like the pelt of an animal).
