"Insensible" as written by and Nicola Hitchcock Saul Freeman....
I pulled a loose thread
I gathered you in
Discovered I could
A pivot for your sun

You invited me in
As if it's nothing
We tread on old ground
As if it's nothing now

It's like I hardly see the sky somedays
It's like you hardly said a word
It's like I hardly see the sky somedays
And i'd do better if I turned my head
Knowing you did

I wouldn't be here
If you could have said no
I wouldn't have come here
If ever I had known

It's like I hardly see the sky somedays
It's like you hardly said a word
It's like I hardly see the sky somedays
And I'd do better if I turned my head
Knowing you did

Knowing you called
Knowing you held her
Knowing you kissed
Knowing you did all this

It's like I hardly see the sky some days
It's like you hardly said a word
It's like I hardly see the sky somedays
And I'd do better if I turned my head
Knowing you did.

    General Commentbeautiful and heartbreaking. The silence before the " knowing you called" is perfect.

    General Commentthis song definitely reaches for my heartstrings. i think its about loving someone but that person you love always being unfaithful and trying to gather strength and move on.

    General CommentI picture her sitting alone in her room for days after the breakup ("it's like I hardly see the sky some days")... they shared so much, but yet it feels like a dream, or like it never even happened at all ("It's like you hardly said a word"). My favorite Mandalay song, and one of my favorite songs ever.
