"The Maker" as written by Martha Wainwright and Jon Carin....
My brother, my sister, my lover, my maker
Did someone here fake it, someone here fate it,
Did someone here take it, someone here make it,
Someone here steal it, someone here lease it

It's under the table where we used to take it
The briar, the bracken, the ebb flow
The cold shoulder

I've been seen crossing somebody else's mind

The story is a new one, it's based on a re-run,
You wouldn't have known it if I hadn't brought it up
Oh, maybe we should just let it go
Oh no

I've been seen crossing somebody else's mind

Nothing is sacred and I cannot shake it,
This feeling of loss when the daytime is crossed
By the sight of the night, the sharp moonlight
It dyes the sky

And I'm wondering now if you got my last call
Or was the music too loud, when you let out the hounds
Oh, maybe you should come and see my show
Oh no

I've been seen crossing somebody else's mind

I love you so
(boiling some water to kill myself)
Let it be known
(boiling some water to kill myself)

    General CommentBefore the Lyrics: "The story is a new one..." it should read:

    So I'm dreaming, let's start at the endings
    Of love and sex, it's a strange one, often a staged one
    Maybe we can get it on the ground
