Question 03:48
Why would you question a meeting of minds A stray conversation, the passing of time? I told you I'm harder than any you've found But you broke me in and you broke me down There's girls who give easy and girls who fold fast And women who'll love you in spite of your past So why are we trying to make this one last? We don't have to be wrong, we don't have to feel bad I said this is the hardest part We forget who we are and forget what we want If feels wrong, but I guess it seems smart It's funny you'd say that; I've heard it before I find it gets harder and hurts so much more I used to be sweeter, you wouldn't believe But these days they're all so much softer than me I said this is the hardest part You forget who we are and forget what you want She seems small, but I guess she seems smart It's a consummate cure It was nothing, I'm sure But it's better by far Not to make this so hard When they want you the way you are Why would you question a meeting of minds A stray conversation, the passing of time? I told you I'm harder than any you've found But you broke me in and you broke me down

Fiercely 04:09
Red sky in the morning You'd better take warning Too young to be alone Too late to fall It's too bad you couldn't hear me Or handle being near me You know I love fiercely Or not at all This was your test run everything you told me Even the times you swore you'd always hold me Easier said than undone This was your rough cut strong enough to show me Shiny and sweet and better just to know me Easier spoken than won So get out Red sky in the evening And the sailing looks easy That's when they start leaving And run away It's too bad you couldn't hear me Or handle being near me Some of us love fiercely And some of us don't stay This was your test run everything you told me Even the times you swore you'd always hold me Easier said than undone This was your rough cut strong enough to show me Shiny and sweet and better just to know me Easier spoken than won So get out And if you want to see me angry I think I've still got it in me We're women who love fiercely Or not at all This was your test run everything you told me Even the times you swore you'd always hold me Easier said than undone This was your rough cut strong enough to show me Shiny and sweet and better just to know me Easier spoken than won So get out

Mid restoration of our Paris flat You stopped the building and you rearranged the map And with the windows boarded up and in It's hard enough for me to know how to begin It's enough to divide us Radio silence When you came And you fell You said it's costing you more than you can afford And so you came and you fell And who's to blame Who can tell? Across the airstream of our western war One missed translation shakes the bedrock to the core So either way now she's a banished friend Spring through the tear ducts and obliterate the sin It's enough to divide us Radio silence When you came And you fell You said it's costing you more than you can afford And so you came and you fell And who's to blame Who can tell? Watch them as the come Whichever side you're on They might even start to recognize the fall Mid restoration of our Paris flat You stopped the building and you rearranged the map And with the windows boarded up and in It's hard enough for me to know how to begin It's enough to divide us Radio silence When you came And you fell You said it's costing you more than you can afford And so you came and you fell And who's to blame Who can tell?

Nightingale 04:06
She was the brightest star in a world of her own Where she'd built herself inside She had a second chance to be happy or not In another person's life She found her way by closing her eyes And had to see it through It was all about her It was not about you Now she's a nightingale Only a muse for another's broken rhyme And when this season's gone she'll have plenty to say But til then she'll bide her time She found her way by closing her eyes And had to see it through It was all about her It was not about you And when she says she's happier now You know it must be true It was all about her It was not about you And now she's better off the one one thing you lost When you broke her life in two And such a brighter star than before When she gave herself to you So when she says she's happier now You know it must be true It was all about her It was never about you

Last Word 04:44
It's be 46 hours since I've seen you At least I stopped counting the days I spent 32 years getting everything clear But I blinked and you took it away If there's one thing I've learned from the seasons There's nothing that moves like the rain It can water the ground, it can melt you back down The one thing you're promised is change And I prayed this would be different Or something I'd have for a time But you craved new complications And the last word's always mine It's been 17 days since you left me At least I stopped wasting my time If could have gone on but you waited too long To say something here wasn't quite right If there's one thing I've learned from the seasons There's nothing that moves like the rain And in seven more days it might wash this away The one thing we're promised is change And I prayed this would be different Or something I'd have for a time But you craved new complications And the last word's always mine And the girl I became she was somebody different More than I dreamed I could love And the way that we changed was at least unexpected When you were the one who gave up And I prayed this would be different Or something I'd have for a time But you craved new complications And the last word's always mine
