Track Name: Braille
Braille

You’re my braille, you’re my hearing aid
You’re the cheesy film, I’m the cliche
You’re the ketchup to my fries
You’re the stars and I’m the sky

You’re the knob to my door
You’re the hot lemonade for when my voice is sore
You’re the ground, I’m the pot
You’re the sea and I’m the salt

You’re the seeds to my chia pet
You’re the milk to my corn flakes
Where did you go, why, love, why?
For you’re the one I cannot live without

For you’re the one I cannot live without
Track Name: Where are my glasses
Where are my glasses

“Where are my glasses?”, he thought.
Another day passes, another scratch on the door.
“Where is my love?”, he thought.
Another day, like a month, another tear on the floor.

Don’t cry now. Don’t fly now
into a fight with your mind.
‘Cause you know it wasn’t
your fault.

Sitting on the porch, await the hours
while the time passes so slow.
He can’t wait anymore.
“Where is my love? Where’s my love?
Where’s my love?”

And he still makes her bed.
And he still sets her a plate.
And he still pours her wine
though he drinks the both
glasses.
Track Name: Bird on a leash
Bird on a leash

Like a bird on a leash -
no use for the wings.
Like a leaf fell from a tree -
stuck to the ground, nowhere to flee.

So you hope it won’t be long
till you’re gone and back with your love
to relive how it is

to sail to the sun,
and fly over seas,
to know how it feels when your eyes
are watery from the wind.

So spread your wings,
hope for best, pray to see
the end, it is near.
Black or white, you’ll be free.
Track Name: Black eyed dog I
Black eyed dog I

Black eyed dog, he called at my door.
Black eyed dog, he called for more.
Black eyed dog, he knew my name.
Black eyed dog, he knew my name.

I'm growing old and I wanna go home.
I'm growing old and I don't wanna know.
Track Name: Black eyed dog II
Black eyed dog II

There’s one dog, he has black eyes
and he’ll fight to stay in my mind.
This black eyed dog, he bangs at my door,
he swallows my soul, he wants me whole.

This dog with black eyes, he wraps around my mind
and he walks, he talks for me, he doesn’t let my sleep

Leave me alone, leave my mind at home
go away.

Whenever I see light, he closes my eyes
takes me to the dark.

Takes me to the dark, takes me the fight
Takes me to that night, takes me back in time when I
was far away from home,
out in sand and sun
alone with my gun
and what they said
and what i read
and black eyed dog, black eyed dog.
Track Name: Let me sleep
Let me sleep

Once an untamed flame,
now just black ash,
so black, the end is bright,
bright enough to lose the fight.

Oh and the letters, I give in.
Shaky hands, coffee stains.
Oh and the veil, I give in.
Almost deciphering

how to sleep
with my love
once again.

Oh and the ring, I give in.
Meals changed for tears.
Oh and the veil, I give in.
Tears behind the white.

White as the end for me,
black as the unforgivable sin.

Let me sleep
with my love
once again.
