At my own suggestion,
I will ask no questions
While I do my thing in the background
But all the time, all the time
I’ll know, I’ll know

It’s no secret: I love sad music. There’s just something about another person being able to express — in a much more artful manner — that thing that you’re feeling/have felt. I’ve always got a song at the ready if I know anyone in need of lyrical catharsis.

Danny getting me tickets to see Fiona reminded me of this song; one of my favorites and one of her saddest (though, aside from a handful, they’re all about heartbreak). What’s so utterly gut-wrenching about this one in particular is that she paints a picture of a woman being taken for granted, each verse ending with the “I’ll know, I’ll know” of how she believes he feels about her, until the final stanza where she says: "And if it gets too late, for me to wait/For you to find you love me, and tell me so/It’s ok, dont need to say it" but doesn’t complete the verse; the song trails off. Heartbreaking.
