Braille Lyrics

She was lying on the floor and counting stretch marks
She hadn't been a virgin and he hadn't been a god
So she named the baby Elvis
To make up for the royalty he lacked, and

From then on it was turpentine and patches
From then on it was cold Campbell's from the can
And they were just two jerks playing with matches
'Cause that's all they knew how to play, hey

And it was raining cats and dogs outside of her window, and
She knew they were destined to become sacred roadkill on the way
And she was listening to the sound of heavens shaking
Thinking about poodles and puddles and mistakes

'Cause it's been turpentine and patches
It's been cold, cold Campbell's from the can
And they were just two jerks playing with matches
'Cause that's all they knew how to play, hey

Ah-da-da-da-da
Nuh-nuh-ah, nuh-ah
Oh, and they knew how to play
Mmm, hey

Elvis never could carry a tune
And she thought about this irony as she stared back at the moon
She was tracing her years with her fingers on her skin
Saying, "Well, why don't I begin again"

With turpentine and patches
With cold, cold Campbell's from the can
After all, I'm still a jerk playing with matches
It's just that he's not around to play along, yeah

I'm still an asshole playing with candles
Blowing out wishes, blowing out dreams
Just sitting here and trying to decipher
Wha, What's written in braille upon my skin

Haaa-ahhh-ahh-ha
Ah-da-da-da-da
Nuuh-aw
Aw
Awwww
Aww, this skin
Mmmm-mmm-mmmm-mmm-oooh-ooooh-ooh-ooh-oooh
Hooo, ohhhh
Hoh

She was lying on the floor and counting stretch
She was lying on the floor and counting stretch
She was lying on the floor
La-la-lying
La-la-la-la-laaa-la-la-la-la, la-lying, and
Counting stretch
