"Tom The Model" as written by Paul David Webb and Beth Gibbons....
How can I forget your tender smile
Moments that I have shared with you
Our hearts may break
But they're on their way
And there's nothing I can do

Oh, so do what you're gotta do
And don't misunderstand me
You know you don't ever have to worry 'bout me
I'd do it again

I can understand that it can't be
Guess it's hard as you were meant for me
But I can't hide my own despair
I guess I never will

Oh, so do what you're gotta do
And don't misunderstand me
You know you don't ever have to worry 'bout me
I'd do it again

So tired of life
No fairy-tale
So hold your fire
'Cause I need you

Oh, just do what you're gotta do
And don't misunderstand me
You know you don't ever have to worry 'bout me
I'd do it again

Do what you're gotta do
And don't misunderstand me
You keep going over every word that we've said
But you don't have to worry 'bout me

    General CommentAlthough both songs end up sounding quite differently, it's just that line that sounds like Nina Simone's "Do What You Gotta Do".

    Anyway, both songs are too sad.

    General CommentThis song is so beautiful.. The way beth gibbons sing is awsome and the way the music is kinda quiet but goes "bam" in the chorus is so cool.. Love this song.. Have no idea what iits about though.
    Maybe its about a relationship and both parts knows its dead end. But still one of them has some feelings left, and the other part is afraid to leave her, cause he will hurt her..

    Just do what you gotta do
    And don't misunderstand me
    You know you don't ever have to worry 'bout me
    I'll do OK

    Just guessing..

    General CommentYes, MISLIE
    I think you are right..
