  • This song is for Felicity at loveletmesleep. We’ve been chatting about life and love, and I’ve been reading her blog, and I was inspired to write about trying to get over an old love. She never said this is something she desires, but the words we’ve shared made me remember when I was trying to shake someone out of my mind. It wasn’t easy. I lost a lot of sleep. But she finally left, and someone else came to occupy my mind. Tonight, writing this song for Felicity, and remembering her…well, she made me lose sleep again, for old time’s sake. Thanks for reminding me of her and some good memories, Felicity. Enjoy the music, friends. — K.C.

         Love, Let Me Sleep

    Feel it through my words:
    your truths you cannot hide.
    Your lies made good company,
    but such friends are not shy.
    See it through my eyes:
    the glow I put around you.
    And you turned off the light
    to be a shadow of yourself.

    Love, let me sleep. I want to dream
    of better days, without you.

    Listen through my ears
    to the sound of your voice:
    the one sound I trusted
    to never leave.
    Read it across my face
    like the letters I sent across the ocean
    to your hands,
    the same hands that once held me.
    CHORUS
