Jennifer Knapp – In Two (The Lament) lyrics

Finish up your coffee, love
It's getting cold
Let's finish up this fight tonight
Before the sun draws neigh and I'm old

Have mercy on me I'm a girl
Though I'm cruel and you cry
I won't shiver cause I know how to break a man
I know how to break a man in two

Still you're suffering, my love
O, who's to blame?
You might be tired, but I'm not through fanning the flame

O, by the tiding of my tounge
I lie and sing what can't be unsung
My soul torn in two by the things I say to you
By the things that I say

I know how to break us man, in two
