The new ones had been uncomfortable when she first tried them on, but, as always, mother knew best and had insisted they would soften, wear in, mould to her feet. But they never did! The leather was tough, and despite the grease Lucy had rubbed into them, the right shoe still squeaked and the stitching pinched her toes.
Though she loved her mother, Lucy wished she would listen to reason and realize she was no longer fifteen years of age. She hated the new shoes. And what made matters even worse, now Mrs Gresham hated them too. You have a lot to be thankful for, girl. Now get downstairs and fetch some hot water.
Nurse is waiting.
When the housekeeper reached the main staircase the sound stopped, her footsteps muffled by the Axminster. She makes me mad complaining all the time about my shoes creaking. Walk on any of the corridors in this house and the floorboards creak. The stairs creak. The doors creak. In fact the whole damned house creaks. I bet if Mrs Gresham leaned over she would creak too!

Mrs High and Mighty, she is! Unfastening her right shoe, Lucy kicked it under the table. Cook wagged her head and pointed to the kettle. Trouble is, the little lass being ill is getting to all of us. Even down here in the kitchen. And Mrs Gresham spends more time in there than anyone. Lucy trickled the boiling water into a china bowl, added a jug full of cold and tested it on her wrist. As Lucy climbed the steps, she was conscious of the odd sounds her feet made with only one shoe on.
From the kitchen she heard a bell ring. It had a distinctive sound, different from the others — brighter, clearer, and louder.
The Glass Eye
The nursery was at the far end of the long corridor. Lucy knocked on the door and took a deep breath before entering. How the room had changed since when she had first arrived at Heaton Hall. How bright it had been in those days with its broad south-facing window - the vibrant velvet curtains and matching strawberry drapes adorning the four-poster bed tied with cords whose silk tassels were formed into tiny balls which hung like bunches of ripe cherries.
We need you!
Everything had glowed with the same succulent shade — cushions, chairs, even the bell pull. That was how she had known it, its door always open, light and sound spilling out into the corridor. But in the last few weeks, since Miss Beatrice had become ill, everything had changed.
I feel this love turn to gold? You know, I hear an extra syllable before "cold" Like "I feel this love turn the cold". And, actually with "the" in there, I'm now hearing: "I feel there's love to the cold". The wording here does sound a bit British, slightly archaic; It probably would more commonly be worded something like "I feel the cold has love. And, it's interpretation can be the time in a relationship where you realize you aren't in love anymore, but you still love each other.
It's that simple, mutual love for one's partner that often keeps couples together though they probably shouldn't be. And, maybe that's what the protagonist in the song is having trouble with.
Through Glass Eyes
He still sees and values the love coming from his partner though their passion has grown cold. To me it sounds like he's saying "Hello sweetie" instead of "hey it's me". Their are many interpretations of the last lyrics in this song on the internet. But I think its "I feel theres no pill to cure" And Im very certain, it makes more sense.

I love a short bridging centrepiece. A temporary ocular conformer is inserted at the completion of the pro- cedure and is worn until the patient receives a prosthesis 4 to 8 weeks after surgery. An elective secondary procedure is required to place the coupling peg or post in those patients who desire improved prosthetic motility. That procedure is usually delayed for at least 6 months after enucleation to allow time for implant vascularization. Technetium bone or gadolinium-enhanced magnetic resonance imaging scans are not now universally used, but they have been used to confirm vascularization before peg insertion.
Under local anesthesia, a conjunctival incision is created at the peg insertion site. A hole is created into the porous implant to allow insertion of the peg or post. The prosthesis is then modified to receive the peg or post. Some surgeons have preplaced coupling posts in porous polyethylene implants at the time of enucleation. The post may spontaneously expose or is externalized in a later procedure via a conjunctival incision. Regardless of the procedure, a type of ocular prosthesis is always needed afterwards. The surgeon will insert a temporary prosthesis at the end of the surgery, known as a stock eye,  and refer the patient to an ocularist , who is not a medical doctor, but board certified ocularist by the American Society of Ocularists.
In most cases, the patient will be fitted during the first visit, return for the hand-painting of the prosthesis, and finally come back for the final fitting. The methods used to fit, shape, and paint the prosthesis often vary between ocularist and patient needs. Living with an ocular prosthesis requires care, but oftentimes patients who have suffered from incurable eye disorders, such as micropthalmia , anophtalmia or retinoblastoma , achieve a better quality of life with their prostheses.
The care required for an ocular prosthesis, outside of regular polishes and check-ups with ocularists, typically revolves around maintaining moisture of the prosthesis and cleanliness.
