Track Name: Question
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
Track Name: Fiercely
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
Track Name: Radio Silence
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?
Track Name: Nightingale
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
Track Name: Last Word
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
