"Silver Buttons" as written by and Heidi Ann Berry....
You were a little bleary the first time we met
So the night's proceedings you would not recall
But I would never forget
A little clumsy, but with tenderness
Undoing all the silver buttons on my dress
And both untouched by sleep
Me, with eyes wide open
You, in oblivion
Never really making it to the same place at the same time
But I never would've believed that it would end this way

If you can't hold on tight then let go
And that's all that I know
Maybe today the rain will fall
And the patterns there will show you
Whether to stay or to go

I held you while you cried for the loves you'd lost
And listened while you re-invented your own past
And when I'd had enough and was on my way
You called me back again
You never really wanted me, you just wanted the company
Well, here's another name to add to your mythology

If you can't hold on tight then let go
And that's all that I know
Maybe today the rain will fall
And the patterns there will show you
Whether to stay or to go
