"Couldn't Cause Me Harm" as written by William Blanchard, Sean Read, Beth Orton and Ted Barnes....
Ooh, yeah, you know,
You couldn't cause me any harm.
Although, at times, I may get startled,
I'm not alarmed.
I can see your eyes
I know when they're telling me a truth
I can feel the heart,
Especially when it's on the roof
Of my mouth.
There's no right or wrong.
This isn't a test.
And I won't lose my experience.
I won't try
To put it aside.
But it's alright.
You know that it's alright.
's alright.
It's gonna be alright.

It's gonna be alright.

And if I told you,
Would you never know to guess?
Sure, what's the point
When little often means so much less.
I can see for miles.
I know when you're telling me a truth
I can feel my heart,
Especially now.
It's on the roof
Of my mouth
There's no right or wrong.
This isn't a gesture
And I don't use my experience.
I don't try
To let it go by
But it's alright.
You know that it's alright.
It's alright.
It's gonna be alright.

    General CommentNo comments? One of my favourites by her. I think it's about a guy scared he's hurting her - maybe they are involved in a casual relationship - and her telling him, it's fine, she can handle it, he couldn't cause her any harm.
