"All Coming Back" as written by and Blasko/cranny....
Hopeful tonight you've found a disguise
You and I never lasted a goodbye
Light seems to fade, clings to mistakes
We remark on the way things have changed

It's all coming back to me
All clothed in black
Images of you and me

Light up the skies, argue the night
To reveal one thins I did was right
Patterns are laid, fortunes are made
We remark on the way things remain

It's all coming back to me
All clothed in black
Images of you and me

You're losing sleep tonight
How could you want this so badly?
What once was clothed in white
Bears like the bruises of a burden

    General CommentThe end of this song is amazing. Brilliant opener for her album. I think this song is about a relationship I'm not sure what sort bu definitelyt one that never really ended, they just drifted apart as the line 'You and I never lasted a goodbye', suggests. 'All clothed in black' could mean that the relationship was absorbed and so dark and at present doesn't evoke emotions of happiness. The line at the end 'What once was clothed in white', would make one think that the relationship was at a stage of happiness where everything was pure and lovely.

    General CommentHow wonderful are these lines:

    "What once was clothed in white
    Bears the bruise of a burden"

    That means so much.

    General CommentI think this song is about a relationship, and they keep fighting, and all the bad feelings keep coming back. I also think that she doesn't want this as much as her partner, and it all used to be happy but then it turned sour

    "How could you want this so badly?
    What once was clothed in white
    Bears the bruise of a burden"

    I also think that some kind of big incident happened, like someone died, and that is taking it's toll on the relationship

    "We remark on the way the things remain"
    like they're surprised they're lasting.
    i don't know, thats just what i think.

    General CommentThis song is deep and wonderful.

    The lyrics, to me anyway, speak of a couple reuniting after a long time apart. This is not a happy reunion. He wants her back, he says he has changed, but she sees his disguise; she can see right through him.
    The reunion brings back all the bad memories and feelings that she had - all the mistakes that she/him/both of them made.

    'We remark on the way that things have changed': to me, that seems like they are trying to make conversation, stalling - eg 'i see you cut your hair/got a new couch,etc'..

    They talk/fight about their past ('argue the night') .
    They 'remark on the way that things remain' -they remark on how they both haven't really changed; they still see the negatives in each other that broke them up in the first place.
    But he still wants her back. He wants this more than her, and she wonders why: after all their history, all these bad memories and mistakes, she can't see how it could work, how it could go back to the way things were ('what once was clothed in white'). Too much has happened, too many mistakes that cannot be undone ('now bears the bruise of a burden'). The 'burden' maybe being the memories that she now has to live with.
