​Hell And High Water

This song is by Rainer Maria and appears on the EP Hell And High Water (EP) (2000) and on the album A Better Version of Me (2001).

I've seen the girl who'll pick up where I leave off
She's already smoothing her hands for the pictures
I've seen her sorting through my memories
What's sweet? what's bitter? she wants what I can't give her.

I've seen the girl who'll chew up what I bite off
She's devising a better mouth just to kiss you
Any minute I'll have to surrender to her wishes
What to take and what to set free? I wonder if she'll miss me.

I've seen the girl who'll be brave when I run off
She's been picking her fights like she knows how to win them
And I've seen her sorting through my memories
What's sweet? what's bitter? she wants what I can't give her.

Every time I try to get out of her way, the day's full of kids
Giving you the finger, and speeders gonna kill you on your tiny street
She wants to beat through all the hell and high water
Threatening what she believes
That's when I know I should just drop everything and let her sing
She's a better version of me

I've seen the girl who'll remember what I lost
She has never forgotten a name or a punchline
She is the one that I have chosen
I'm lost but she's found
A better way to get 'round

I tell myself you're not a fool
