"Perfectly Clear" as written by and Jewel Kilcher....
The doorway frames you
A picture perfect silhouette,
Blue sky of regret
Enough to hang you
Your legs seem to tremble
At least I imagine that they do
Then again, it's probably easy for you

[Chorus]
But please, don't open your mouth, my dear
I can read all the signs
I can take it from here
There's no need to explain,
It's perfectly clear

Yellow wallpaper peels makes
A strange halo around your head
It's funny how I notice
These stupid things instead
You say something awkward
But I wish that you wouldn't
A whole life of You wish you coulds
But just couldn't

[Chorus]

So I try not to think to much
It only just makes me mad,
Spent half my life loving you
Think of all the love that I could've had

Five years worth of kisses
Are packed in your bags
This tiny moment fits
All the big things we ever had
And I can't quite pinpoint
When it left or what for
Love always steps lightly
Away from the door

Please, don't open your mouth, my dear
I can read all the signs,
I can take it from here
There's no need to explain,
No, there's no need to explain,
It's perfectly clear

    General CommentBeautiful song. I'm pretty sure it's about a girl who is watching her long-time lover leave and it's difficult so she doesn't want him to say anything because she knows what went wrong and him saying it out loud would only make things worse.
