"At Constant Speed" as written by and Gemma Claire Hayes....
A lonely burden rests gently
This is harder than I thought
Your face is distant and paler now
It's funny how things work out

But if I keep a constant speed
And watch everything rush past me
It's the quickest way to leave it all behind
Only it never leaves

I'm beginning to forget, I'm beginning to forget you
I just see an outline
I'm beginning to forget, I'm beginning to forget you
I hope that's alright

I miss your kitchen window view
The effect I had on you
Your voice is lost in static waves
Erased by every day

If I keep a constant speed

And let everything rush past me
This bloody mess I can leave behind
Only it never leaves

I'm beginning to forget
I'm beginning to forget you
I just see an outline of you
I'm beginning to forget
I'm beginning to forget you
I hope that's alright

I'm beginning to forget
I'm beginning to forget you
I just see an outline
I'm beginning to forget
I'm beginning to forget you
I hope that's alright

I just see an outline
I just see an outline of you
(Just see an outline)
I just see an outline of you

    My InterpretationI love this song. This a song of learning to finally leave the lost relationship. You still go back to revisit some of the sweet times, (you did after all, once love this person). But in doing so, you realize you can now move on- & it's okay. Bittersweet. I love Gemma Hayes- gorgeous woman & singer...
