Track Name: Don't Mind
Strong words, few deeds
Tell me what a friend should be
Go again: roll the dice
Show me where my heart should be

Nevermind if we see the day
When it comes it surely waits
Warm lights on the wall, is it too late?
Lift the cup, lift the plate

If you don’t mind

Big wounds in your short lives
Don’t mind me, I’m just saying goodnight
Bet you can’t tell what comes out of my mouth
Was it wizened pearls, was it turpentine?

But you don’t mind if you don’t mind
