"Fear and Convenience" as written by and Thao Nguyen....
I have seen fear and convenience
I have never glimpsed a romance
All my riches in the company van
I drove much faster than they ran

Did he hurt you
In a new way
In a new way
In a new way
Did he hurt you
In a new way
In a new way
In a new way

All our senses dry as cotton
Petrified hearts
Let 'em go if you got 'em
And all I can give
Hot water from my shower
My legs on your bed
So I do not think about her

But tell me did he hurt you
In a new way
In a new way
In a new way
Tell me did he hurt you
In a new way
In a new way
In a new way

Did he hurt you
In a new way
In a new way
In a new way

    General Comment"Did he hurt you? in a new way... "

    ahhhhhhhhhhhhhhh gosh I love that. it's not the hurt part, it's the fact that he found a new way to do it that no one else could. relates well again to the end of a relationship, especially when one or both persons are vindictive and seem to forget that they ever cared about the other person they are now hurting. It seems with every relationship there is a hurt that is new and different and therefore impossible to get used to. How can anyone get used to it [hurt] or just brush it off when every time it changes?

    ....Petrified hearts, let 'em go if you got 'em.

    General CommentThis song is so fantastic, it makes me sad only one person commented.

    Her word choice is simple and poignant and says everything a broken girl has ever wanted to when they lose that first love.
