​In Two (The Lament)

This song is by Jennifer Knapp and appears on the album The Way I Am (2001).

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 tongue
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
