How

I didnít come this far for you to make it hard for me.
And now you want to ask me how.
Itís like, how does your heart beat and why do you breathe?
How does your heart beat and why do you breathe?

Why did you come here?
You werenít invited.
And you were on the outside.
Stay on the outside.
And now you want to ask me why.
Itís like, how does your heart beat and how do you cry?
How does your heart beat?

And there are some things that Iíd like to figure out.
There are some things that I can do without,
Like you and your letters that go on forever
And you and the people that were never friends.
Never friends. Never friends.

With all the things that you could be,
You never could learn how to be me.
And now you want to ask me how.
Itís like, how does your heart beat and why do you breathe?
How does your heart beat, why do you breathe?
How do you breathe?


lisa explains the meaning of this song, from an online interview with dejamuse:

"That song was about a few different things. It was partially about what happens in the movie [Twister] where there's a character who being challenged, just like, you know, a lot of us get challenged in our lives... One of the people chooses their carreer over their relationship and I think I understand that. I understand a carreer being as natural a part of you as a relationship and I think you can have both... So, in the song, it deals with somebody asking you questions about things that are so innate to you, it's hard to even think about them being any other way."
