Sixteenth song from my January Songs project. I am writing and recording a song every day for January 2011.

A new EP by Jack Hayter can be bought from jackhayter.bandcamp.com


I can't film the lights
The raindrops, the lens flare, the contrast ain't right
I can't capture the birds
The wind, the clatter and the ambient noise
I can't grasp the reasons
I can't gain a purchase or grip
I can't fed the pin prick
or the wetness of your lips

My heart cannot tell all the good words from the bad
Let me sleep
My eyes cannot see what lies in front of me
Let me sleep

Rain like arrows and spears
No presence of mind to pull you near
Shelter you under my duffel coat
Hook your head under my chin

The foxes that screech, serenade me
Let me sleep
My eyelids must give in to the sweet gravity
Let me sleep
