    This song was inspired by Sharon Olds award-winning poetry collection Stag's Leap. Do check it out if you can - her words are much more compelling than mine, but mine are as follows:

    When you told me I didn't cry.
    I was wondering if those steaks I bought
    Would last another night.
    When you told me I didn't scream or make a fuss.
    I was wondering how you rip in two
    A lifetime's worth of us.
    When you told me.
    I had nothing to say.

    When you told me I couldn't look you in the eye
    I couldn't bear to see the pity
    The absence of love's light.
    I was sinking, I was drowning
    I couldn't take a breath
    I watched the bubbles slowing fading
    Like it was someone else's death
    Oh when you told me.
    I had nothing to say.

    But you had plenty, boy's on fire
    But everything you say's so tired
    'We don't talk we don't make time,
    I must have known that we're not fine.'
    You don't feel needed, I'm too strong
    We're worth more than drifting along.
    We're not working you say it's clear

    We Don't Speak Of Her

    Do you really think it will be okay
    Our lives, the lies will melt away.
    Can you really think I'll pull us through
    Take care of all the details
    Like I always do.

    I'm not calm, this is numb, this is misery
    I can't focus on the future
    Blinded by our history
    Don't you care that I'm broken, I'm lost
    That if I ever started crying
    I would never stop.

    So when you told me
    I looked the other way
    Cos when you told me
    I had nothing to say.

    When you told me.
    There was
    nothing
    left
    to
    say.
