Hannigan, Lisa - Venn Diagram Lyrics




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,
And you will be more diagonal
And I've a head on me in the post,
I know, a castle swallowed in the swell
