I will cure your loneliness someday With my hands, my lips, or how my hips sway When I see you, there's a smile on your face And I hope it stays there always So don't lock the door when you're leaving Don't lock the door when you go Don't lock the door behind you, babe And come back home when you need your mama some more You lift me up when I have fallen You seem to know everything I am wanting You've seen me grow, you're the sunlight for that I know May that light always shine in your soul And don't lock the door when you're leaving Don't lock the door when you go Don't lock the door behind you, babe And come back home when you need your mama some more If I come to you, will you hold me If I follow you down, would you scold me? If I give too much, would you control me? If I lose my faith, will you console me? Don't lock the door when you're leaving Don't lock the door when you go Don't lock the door behind you babe And come back home when you need your mama some more

Jewelry 03:42
I came dressed down Wearing my birthday gown You laid at my feet Have mercy on me You wrapped me in your finest furs Drew me into your little world You gave me a crown before you tore me down Bone by bone, you rid me of my skin When you were done, you strung necklaces Now my gift to you, my king Hangs from your mistresses collarbone And here I am, dressed in her finery Black sheets, cold heart what do you want from me? I gave you everything and you gave me costume jewelry Those diamonds in your eyes, they are mine They are mine - magister, you've crossed the line But when we're along you tell me they are still mine And here I am dressed in her finery, Black cheeks, cold love what do you want from me? I gave you everything and you gave me her jewelry Bone by bone, you rid me of my skin When you were done, you strung necklaces Out of bones, out of diamonds And here I am, dressed in your finery Black sheets, cold love, what do you want from me? I gave you everything and you gave me all these bones all these diamonds I came dressed down wearing my birthday gown

Child's Eyes 05:31
Pressed against the ocean, swelling like the tide A woman shrugs her shoulder, turns it off to the side A thousand words between the echoes inside Her belly, where he buried his goodbyes There’s a million ways to go on, she knows, Not one realistic Those moments I’ve seen, superimposed and idealistic “But I’ve got them with me still, And if they do not kill me they will find a way. Yes they must find a way to stay.” Every color, every smile is magical The dreams of a newborn child, so malleable We could learn a thing or two by looking at you Vivid like the falling leaves, the first time, in a child’s eyes We open an old log to squeal like the bugs They’re just a family torn up like us “I’ll bring you to the water when you’re older, my daughter I will tell you all about him when you’ve grown. Though a thousand times an hour, I use words that came from him And there is nowhere I would rather be than lost within his chin But you’ll find every treasure he gave you locked deep within Your gentle heart, graceful smile, quiet eyes and soft skin” Every motion, every night, is magical The dreams of a newborn child, intangible “I can still find you, oh I’m looking at you: You are everywhere I see, most particularly in this child’s eyes” Sleep softly, like a baby Sleep softly and when I come home You will know who I am
