"Oh My Love" as written by and Brendan Benson....
She wrote to me and said in a letter
That she wanted to see if she could do better
She thought that she could if I only I'd let her
And that's where she stood for worse or for better
And I couldn't argue 'cause deep down I knew
As much as it pained me, well, I felt it too

And, oh, my love, we've got to be more careful in the future
And, oh, how much it helps to talk about it and let it out

Yesterday I found a picture of me
When I was a baby and I was to be
A man with no home
Adrift in the sea
No plan of his own
So careless and free
It makes me sad but then deep down I know
That all is not lost and there's still room to grow

And, oh, my love, we've got to be more careful in the future
And, oh, how much it helps to talk about it and get it out

We could be lovers or we could be friends
Smother each other, but that's how it ends
Could be the wrong words that mean everything
Like two lonely songbirds that don't want to sing
And it's hard to swallow but deep down inside
I know that it's true and can't be denied

And, oh, my love, we've got to be more careful in the future
And, oh, how much it helps to talk about it and let it out

And I'm so proud of the way we face the truth about our future
And, so, my love, what will we do without it
Do without it
