about

An early collaboration between Jenny and Amanda. Amanda handed Jenny a poem and asked her if she could do anything with it. Jenny had been tinkering with a chord progression and melody that serendipitously ended up being the perfect fit. The line "Hardy Candy Shells" practically leapt off the page to her and she decided to rework the poem to center around that one lyric.

lyrics

You may never know our name
We were never asked to play the game
But how can we know
What we don't show

Projecting perfection holding back what's real
Perfecting protection never shed a tear

Time to let it go now
Be brave and feel the blow

Hard candy shells just break away
A fever swells why don't we stay
Hard candy shells cover what's real
When did we become afraid to feel

We keep changing colors trying to blend
Masters of disguise with false friends

Time to strip it down
In loss we will be found

Hard candy shells just break away
A fever swells why don't we stay
Hard candy shells cover what's real
When did we become afraid to feel

Ahh ~~~

One door closes, one door cracks a light
One door opens, wide as we give up this fight

Hard candy shells just break away
A fever swells why don't we stay
Hard candy shells cover what's real
When did we become afraid to feel

(chorus 2x w/ counter and tag)
