"Are You Ok?" as written by and Amy Millan Evan Cranley....
I just want you to come home
To turn the key, to turn off time
For everything to shine
Are you kind?
Is it you, no really, is it you
Turns on the good time
Nothing good, I'll refuse to
Can you give me a clue?
To where you go, when your eyes don't close
When I lose you to the moon

You don't want my kiss but you want my kids
Is that any way, is that any way to live?
Are you OK?

What you running, what you running away from life?
What you running, what you running away to hide?
'Cause I wish I could tell you there was nothing but time

What you running, what you running away from life?
What you running, what you running away to hide?
'Cause I wish I could tell you there was nothing but time

There's a story that you won't tell
It's a cruel dark hole, it's the color of cold
It hides in the belly of your life
It gets with some light
No stopping an emotional war
I'll give you more, I'll be the soldier at your door
If you want me to, I will call through
I can tear your heart out or help you live
Help this endless power dismiss
Just one kiss

What you running, what you running away from life?
What you running, what you running away to hide?
'Cause I wish I could tell you there was nothing but time

What you running, what you running away from life?
What you running, what you running away to hide?
'Cause I wish I could tell you there was nothing but time

I just want you to come home
I just want you to come home
I just thought that you'd come home
Will you ever be mine?
Can you give me a clue?
Can you give me a clue?
What's this story that you won't talk?
What's this story that you won't talk?
Will you ever be mine?
Can you give me a clue?
Can you give me a clue?
What's this story that you won't talk?
What's this story that you won't talk?
There's a story that you won't talk
Will you ever be mine?
Can you give me a clue?

    General CommentInitially this song didn't stand out on the album at all for me, bit after repeated listens this is now my favourite track. And must be really great to hear live, especially at 2:55.

    What's it about? Living with someone depressed? Depression zaps your sex drive, your energy, your ability to connect. This feels like a cry of desperation from a husband or wife trying to reconnect with a spouse lost to depression.
