Where You Gone?

A Little Laughing Dog, 2019

Mighty River

My heart
My heart beats two steps out of my chest

Too far
Too far from where it should be
To fix this mess

Give me some cure
A pain relief
Some drug would be good
As pain relief

(They say…)
“Pray God,
Maybe he can help to ease your fears”

“I’m not sure,
We’ve barely spoken in years”

Give me some cure
A pain relief
Some drug would be good
As pain relief

Cadillac Blue

I was blind
I was blind to see
The pain you’re causing me, you were
Just a little bit obscene

I won’t slip away too late
I won’t share the bed with you
Even a blind man now can see
Your attitude for killing me

But I paid attention to something
That others don’t do
Saw you coming home
With a Cadillac Blue

Wherever I’m with you
Jesus Christ it seems I disappear
Even when “NEVER” is just a word
It never sounded to your ear so clear

Since I’m not too tired we might go out for a walk
But I’m afraid you might mistake something
And ask me to go on

Where U Gone?

I found your drawings
Your morning cup in place
A bad day is coming
If you left our house today

Migraine is pumping
Sick blood in my veins
All or Nothing
I am still the one who waits

Where have you gone?

I found your drawings
Your keys were still in place
Hard days are coming
If you left without a trace

Migraine is pumping
Sick blood in my veins
All or Nothing
Is it still worth to wait?

Where have you gone?

The Hand That Feeds

It was late May
I sang my Babe a Serenade

Birds on parade
She got everything I crave
for

The spots on her skin
The smell of her wardrobe

Could last forever
In a toxic environment

Got a
Smile on my face
When I hear her laughter

Before she said
“Can we do it rougher?”

“Can we do it now?”

Do you fancy a drink?
A pretext good for us to speak.

For miles I roamed
And here I am
Back to square one

Whoever let you off the leash
free to bite the hand that feeds

He never should’ve bread to eat
or a place to go and sleep
A place to go and…

Pale Skin Bunny

Three in the morning, she naked in my house

Day is coming, twisted bodies sweat and bound

Tell me, did you fake it?

Red hair waving, and her lips on my mouth

Kush is burning, she don’t say much but screams aloud

Has no time for cuddle, she won’t sleep here,
There’s a man on the road that she calls “my dear”

Tell me, are we wasted?

Pale skin bunny, prettiest girl in town

One time lover, goodbye and maybe I’ll see you around

Tell me, did you fake it?
Tell me, are we wasted?
