Liner Notes: 

Theresa: Donna brought these lyrics to my attention and I was thrilled to work with her amazing talent again. The dramatic lyrics that tell an emotional story really pulled me in and a melody worked itself out pretty quickly. Thank you for giving me this opportunity, Donna!

Donna sez: And thank you, Theresa, for the lovely demo, and for the fine collaboration. Smile

Lyrics: 

The Curve of Your Words

V1
You made a lot of promises
But you weren’t always honest
‘Cuz your eyes could hardly ever
Quite meet mine

Pre-chorus
Your words were a sabre
You’d wield with intent
When I fell out of favour

Chorus
The curve of your words
Their edge like a razor
The curve of your words
That branded you traitor
The curve, oh the curve of your words

V2
You thought you were some troubadour
Imagined I was stupid
Or I couldn’t see your end game
Down the line

Pre-chorus
Your words were a sabre
You’d wield with intent
When I fell out of favour

Chorus
The curve of your words
Their edge like a razor
The curve of your words
That branded you traitor
The curve, oh the curve of your words

Bridge
Your vowels were honey
With lacings of acid
I had to absorb it
And all of it blasted me
Out of your orbit
…I’m finally free
Drifting in space
With your other debris

Chorus
The curve of your words
Their edge like a razor
The curve of your words
That branded you traitor
The curve, oh the curve of your words

This musical treatment surrounds the lyric perfectly. Exceptional. I love the bridge, it pierces the darkness and takes us to another level of pain. "Drifting in space with your other debris". Brilliant.

Love the drama, emotion and the pacing of this music. The music and vocal delivery brings the well written lyrics to life so perfectly! Great chord progression and wonderful piano. Love the hook! Brilliant collaboration! The vocal lift into the dramatic bridge followed by the final soaring chorus is such a great way of this song. The break down at the end is sublime.
