"A Stone Would Cry Out" as written by and Sam Lewis Roberts....
The cinematic after effects of alcohol
Have led me to believe
That there's nothing more beautiful
Than a face as it starts to fade
From your memory, what had once been clear as the day
Obscured by the shade

And I was always the thorn to your rose

A long string of disappointing days
Led me to concede that I'd been losing sleep
And I'm tired and frayed at the seams
And things are changing in me
It's been two hard months since I could call you my own
It cuts to the bone
Is there anything that I can do when I've been turned into stone

But I was always the thorn to your rose
Some doors are better left closed

You move like a rolling wave
One that don't fade when it's gone
Beyond a doubt it gets so hard that a stone would cry out

I know there's a lesson in here
But it's so hard to find
I've been searching my mind
A little pearl of wisdom for the later years
When the thread of this life starts to unwind
I never had to fight for my love
But that's over I know
It's just how it goes
I never had to fight for my love
But that's over I know
It's just how it goes

And you move like a rolling wave
One that don't fade when it's gone
Beyond a doubt it gets so hard, it gets so hard
That a stone would cry out
Some doors are better left closed

Some say this place makes it hard to hold your head up
Some days this face makes me feel like I've been set up

    General CommentIt is a beautiful song. I can relate. I once lost someone I loved dearly because I was young and immature and did not know how to treat her properly.

    I never thought of how beautiful the memory is as a face begins to fade, but it is true when you think about it.

    I suppose when someone has to deal with someone else who has some emotional issues, it is difficult. It seems to be the case in this song. The girl has had enough and has left.

    This is lovely also:

    I know there's a lesson in here
    But it's so hard to find
    I've been searching my mind
    A little pearl of wisdom for the later years

    General CommentThis song is heartbreaking in every sense. A young man who never had to fight for his love, and the first time he is compelled to do so he must concede that some doors are better left closed. The sorrow has hardened him; he is unable to move on as the rolling wave of her memory keeps him down.
    There is a light at the end of the tunnel however, if we treat Sam's body of work as a whole. By listening to the albums in order the next song we hear tells us that that there's still love at the end of the world :)
