when he said

What a work of art. This album is definitely a new favorite… Anais Mitchell continues to set benchmarks and raise bars. Killer writing, both musically and lyrically.

When he said, when he said that he liked my cut of hair
I became a barber
When he said, when he said that my scent was eau de fleur
I became a perfumer
When he said, when he said that he liked the clothes I wore
I became a tailor

And I sewed a party dress
In and out and in and out
With a needle and a thread
In and out and in and out
In my head the thought of him
In and out, in and out and in

When he said, when he said he was leaving
I took up the violin
When he said, when he said that my body he’d not miss
I became a sculptress
When he said, when he said that my face he’d soon forget
I became a poet

And the fiddle and the bow
In and out and in and out
And the chiseling stone
In and out and in and out
And the fountain pen
In and out, in and out and in

Now that he’s gone away
There isn’t anyone to say if I’m a diamond or a dime a dozen
