"Pearl" as written by and Cole....
Humility on Bleecker Street
Exposed my faults until I'm left defeated
It's been three years into this relationship
This is longer than I ever could commit

But I feel I'm near
But I feel my fear

I'm standing at the edge of another precipice in life
Gotta face my steppenwolf
Gotta drag you through the mud
When I get there I will see myself
I will look for strength within
I will be a better woman
Hang in there baby, I'm the grain of sand
Becoming the pearl

There are no roll models in rock 'n' roll
No women who could have it all
The long career,the man, the happy family
And here I stand and god I do demand it

And I feel I'm near
But I feel my fear

I'm standing at the edge of another precipice in life
Gotta face my steppenwolf
Gotta drag you through the mud
When I get there I will see myself
I will look for strength within
I will be a better woman
Hang in there baby, I'm the grain of sand
Becoming the pearl

It's dark in here-Don't know who I am
Memories come-I'm wading through the moon
Evil side-Wants to drag me down
Will power-God,please give me some
(I'm hanging onto hope now)

I'm standing at the edge of another precipice in life
Baggage from my family
Going back to therapy
I will kneel, be humble,tow the weight
I will look for strength within
I will be a better woman
Hang in ther baby, I'm the grain of sand
Becoming the pearl

    General CommentI think this is about a bad break up and the feeling of complete hopelessness that comes with it. She's gonna go into herslef, sort of shy away, take some time alone to think and once she feels like she's ready, she'll be a better women, a pearl.

    It's dark in here- could be a reference to her mind, like that emptiness one has inside and in mind after a break up.

    I love this song

    General Commenti think this song is about her wanting to have it all and feelin like it's impossibly without going insane, so she's praying for god to give her the will power to keep everything together and not give anything up.

    General CommentI think this song is about being in a relationship for awhile, but something is changing, maybe she is changing, and she's asking the guy to wait until she becomes a better person (pearl)
