"Slow Surprise" as written by and Chris Smither....
There is a way that subtle changes to stay
Barely noticed, hardly known
One day you´ll say my situation´s locked away
But by tomorrow you´re all alone

It seems so sudden, but it´s not, it´s only grown
From a scene that long ago was left
Forgotten in the snow
And has a way with slow surprises all its own

It´s hard to show, but like a boulder rollin´ slow
Or a rumble, deep in the ground
Things whisper low, and by the time I really know
What´s been movin´, they´ve settled down

Too late to see the way they´re shiftin´ round
Too late to say there´s bound to be another way
It´s all been said and done without a sound
This comes to me, and now that I begin to see

It´s not dramatic, it´s nothing grand
I used to be half of thje whole of you and me
Now I´m the limit of all I am
It seems so simple, nothin´ much to understand

You walked out and closed the door
Said I don´t live here anymore
And now nothin´s hangin´ heavy in my hands
Now nothin´s hangin´ heavy in my hands
