"The Flicker of a Little Girl" as written by and Stuart Ashton Staples....
Was that the flicker of a little girl?
(Some moments our story is meaningless)
When you just want to feel safe, you just want to be loved
And you know there's no better place than this

Maybe I could prove myself wrong,
Maybe things fall together than pull apart

'Seen you when you were fourteen coming home from school
(It's so easy to be beautiful when you're young)
I still see that light that is shining through those tired eyes
Could those eyes see what was coming then?

And we all want what we can't afford
And we all get what we deserve

Too many deaths and betrayals, too many lies
(Makes it hard to trust the moment you're in)
Too many teardrops that you held inside
(They were always gonna pour over me someday)

Maybe I could prove myself wrong,
Held on to something I thought I never could
'Never carelessly mislaid,
I always knew just where it was

Was that the flicker of a little girl?
(Some moments our story is meaningless)
