"Before We Begin" as written by James Cargill and Patricia Ann Keenan....
Here again at the end
Before the beginning
So the salt will spill again
Throw it over your shoulder

Oh it's in tomorrow, fortune or sorrow
Wait, you may win
I don't mean to show that I know how this goes
Before we begin
Again

You may hide on one side
And me on the other
You may speak, but wait for me
Should my sentence faulter

Oh it's in tomorrow, fortune or sorrow
Wait, you may win
But now it feels empty, there's no need in guessing
Before we begin
Again

Oh it's in tomorrow, fortune or sorrow
Wait, you may win
But now it feels empty, there's no need in guessing
Before we begin
Again

So here we are
Again
Back to the beginning
So the salt will spill again
Throw it over your shoulder

Oh it's in tomorrow, fortune or sorrow
Wait, you may win
I don't mean to show that I know how this goes
Before we begin
Again

    My InterpretationReminds me a lot of someone I know who has had a lot of one night stands, and is starting to become weary of them.

    She's hopeful that this next encounter may lead to a relationship, but is resigned to nothing coming of it.
