Daniel L Remler This is a mesmerizing and darkly beautiful song. It asks:

"What is this" new feeling of coldness in our relationship? "What exists" now, if anything in our relationship?

I generally don't spend much time on lyrics, but these reach out and shake you as they ask the most difficult of questions from a lover: are you not in love with me anymore?

But it is the many well-produced and polished elements which weave together to make this song's music shine.

"Between Us" is a real tour de force.

The last time
You touched me
You were sweet
But barely familiar
You kissed me
Then averted your eyes
The quiet was ripe with everything
You couldn’t bring yourself to say
Wouldn’t let yourself feel
The last time you touched me
I thought:

“What is this between us?”
Between us

The last time
We spoke
You were cold
I was less than a stranger
You told me
It would never be me
Maybe it never was
Who knows?
Maybe everything’s a dream
Maybe we’re all waking up
From the last time
Last time
We were
I don’t know

But what is this between us?
What is this between us?

What exists between us?

Between us
Between us

The last time
You wrote me
You were laconic
And I was putting on a brave face
Days away from a surgeon’s knife
Groping for the perfect final words
For how to say this will outlive us both
We were ripe with everything
We'd never brought ourselves to say
We were too wounded still to feel

What is this between us?
What is this between us?
What is this?

What exists between us?
