10. Braille

She was lying on the floor and counting stretch marks

she hadn't been a virgin and he hadn't been a god

so she names the baby Elvis

to make up for the royalty he lacked

And from then on it was turpentine and patches

from then on it was cold Campbell's from the can

They were just two jerks playing with matches

Cause that's all they knew how to play

And it was raining cats and dogs out side of her window

And she knew they were destined to become sacred road kill on the way

And she was listening to the sound of heavens shaking

thinking about puddles, puddles and mistakes

And from then on it was turpentine and patches

from then on it was cold Campbell's from the can

They were just two jerks playing with matches

Cause that's all they knew how to play

Elvis never could carry a tune

she thought about this irony as she stared back at the moon

she was tracing the years with her fingers on her skin

saying why don't I begin again

with turpentine and patches

with cold Campbell's from the can

after all I'm still a jerk playing with matches

it's just that he's not around to play along

I'm still an ass hole playing with matches

Blowing out my wishes blowing out my dreams

Just sitting here and trying to decypher what's written in Braille upon my skin...

11. I want to sing

11. I want to sing

I want to sing to you my love

My only love and happiness

don't be so blue so blue my love

take off your shoes take off my dress

I want to sing to you my love

My only love and happiness

don't be so blue so blue my love

this too shall pass this too shall pass

but tell me, what have I done to deserve you?

must have done something cause that's how it works

must have been kind to kittens and birds,

in a previous life must have thought happy thoughts...

'cause there, you were there right beside me

then somehow inside me while inside myself

books on the shelf thoughts on the shelf

hands to myself, i should definitely keep my hands to myself

Love is a dangerous pastime

caught between madness and gladness of flight

nothing is wrong and nothing is right

falling asleep in your arms every night

But Love's such a strange situation

full of frustration and anger and fear

Everything's tears

nobody hears

nobody's here, and nobody hears...

I want to sing to you my love

my only love and happiness

don't be so blue so blue my love

take off your shoes take off my dress

I want to sing to you my love

my only love and happiness

don't be so blue so blue my love

This too shall pass, this too shall pass...

Mr. Sunshine in the morning

in the morning light

won't you come down from the ceiling

won't you stay the night

baby won't you stay the night

In the summer I remember days so long and hot

These past weeks it has been raining

and now my song's a flood

baby now my song is a flood

You've been driving down that same road

road rage in your eyes

so won't you come down from the ceiling

won't you hear my cries

won't you hear my cries
