Lisa Hannigan — Braille lyrics

For you, I leave my light on
To do its best against the storm.
And you came in like the tide and
I knew that we could keep each other warm.

You bring crocosmia and fuschias,
And I, I sing your name into the night.
A king of salt and stones, your compass,
It swings from you to me tonight.

We’ll swim without a word between us,
Our breath held in.
We reel in love in the ocean,
Braille on our skin, on our skin

I fill a glass with what you’ve gathered
They wilt against the window pane
In the morning sees you off with nets to scatter
You will come in with the tide again

We swim without a word between us
Our breath held in
We read enough in the rush of
Braille on our skin, on our skin

We swim without a word between us,
Our breath held in.
We read enough in the rush of
Braille on our skin, on our skin.

    Can’t get this song out of my head since hearing it on Ondine (and I don’t want to either : -)

    This is one of those perfect little songs. Problem: can not find the song anywhere except the movie version which has the talking at the beginning. Also, why isn’t this song a mega-hit? Don’t get it. You maybe get to hear a truly great song maybe once or twice a year. This song should make her a household name but, yet, it hasn’t.

      How is this song’s marketing issue America’s fault? America is waiting for Lisa, where has she been?
      If Braille were put up on the Google App store, iTunes, Amazon, etc. it would be massively popular, and Lisa would get the broader recognition she deserves. I suspect this has more to do with the film’s rights to the song than anything else. Perhaps she could get around it with an alternate version?
