Lisa Hannigan - Venn Diagram Little Bird
"Venn Diagram" is track #9 on the album Sea Sew. It was written by Lisa Margaret Hannigan.
I have lost you to sleep again
Sleeping as we do on opposite sides of a venn diagram
I read the time in shadows on your wall
The shards of light through the slats on your window
I ease myself from under your languid arm
I fumble on my boots and hear you breathe through your alarm
And I disarm it for you, you rarely heed it anyway
I wouldn't want it to intrude upon your dream
School bell ring, messing up the play
A note, penned clumsily in this century's type-ruined hand
Saying "Gone down the shops for a walk
I'll bring back some sandwiches"
And then I kiss your face, the black and the blue
I tie it into my laces, I don't want the wander blocking up the view
I stumble out into the afternoon
I'm still salty from drink and the late night pool
And I'll be gone an hour at most, you will be more diagonal
And I've a head on me in the post, I know, a castle swallowed in the swell
Lisa Hannigan - Ray LaMontagne - O Sleep
O Sleep, come for me, I will go quietly,
where the roof doesn't leak in my heart.
O Sleep, come for me,
I'm a boat, sprung a leak,
I'll hide and you'll seek a new start
for me. Until dawn, I'll be too gone
to care how grey the day is.
The dreams that it chases away,
they stay asleep.
O Sleep, come for me,
I will come willingly,
like a leaf from a tree in October.
O Sleep, come for me, I wait hopefully.
I was drunk on a dream, now I'm sober.
From now until dawn,
it can't be too long for me,
I count the hours
'til I sleep with your feet by my feet,
your breath on my cheek, asleep.
