LEAD ASHTRAY (from The Coup de Grâce, 2016)
lyrics by Violet Payne

Once there was a girl.
Once there was a cure.
Once there was a dream,
if only she could sleep.
Once there was a man.
Once there was a plan.
Once there was a way,
if only for a day.
If only I was someone else.
If only time was left unfelt.
If everything was shades of gray,
maybe I could fade away.
If only I would not look back.
If only sight would turn to black.
If everything would fade away,
once upon a time led astray.
Once there was a girl
who hoped to find a cure.
She wished upon a dream.
If only she could sleep.
