it was a song for someone else, but this poem is for you

He said I never take the blame.

I said it’s neither yours nor mine.

He said I make excuses.

I said I’m trying to explain my side.

 

He said some more, and more after that,

but I had buts in opposition.

And when he said that it was over,

I thought, of course, he couldn’t mean it.

 

But when you’re the cause and offer no solution,

can you really play surprised?

I broke his heart and he broke mine,

and apart we’re picking up the pieces.

 

But I have tape and I have glue

and some sweet somethings to say

I hope I haven’t learned too late to listen –

are you sure we can’t find a way to fix it?
