Lyrics of Lisa Hannigan - Venn Diagram Live

Venn Diagram
(Lisa 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 the
wall - the shards
of light through the slats on your window

ah ha ha ha!

I ease myself from under your languid arm, fumble on
my boots and
hear you breathe through your alarm 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

ah ha ha ha!

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 tie it
into my laces, I
don't want the wander blocking up the view

ah ha ha ha!

I stumble out into the afternoon. still salty from
drink and the late
night pool I'll be gone an hour at most, you will be
more diagonal I've
a head on me in the post, I know, a castle swallowed
in the swell.

ah ha ha ha!
