Another Apology

Another hurricane, another slammed door
Another flask of whisky washed up on the shore
My eyes can’t rest until the phone rings and I hear your sweet goodnight
But at 2 AM, I write a requiem to us
For which I can’t recite
I worry that it may be closing time
I will not accept your last
Call me before my heart self-destructs
From finding out the truth again

Go on, the bar is calling you
Our plans keep falling through
You slept over a friend’s last night
Which friend? No information
Offer no explanation
No accusation, but it don’t seem right
I know you’d never lie to me
You were with your family
Why do I jump to conclusions?
Another apology

Another dial tone, another stomach flu
Another string of words that could not come from you
You tell me you’ll love me forever and how I make you feel inside
I hear the tab open, and it begins again
Good evening, Mrs. Hyde
“Your band sucks”, “Your music’s too mainstream,”
“You won’t amount to anything,”
“You loser,” “I never loved you”
Then ten minutes later you love me again

Go on, the party’s calling you
Our plans keep “falling through”
What happened to our date last night?
You left me waiting at the train station
Offer no explanation
No invitation to your nonstop flight
I know you’d never lie to me
You thought that I would be at the party
Why do I jump to conclusions?
Another apology
The struggle’s terrifying, but it’s worth it
If I come home to you everyday
It’s just a phase, you’ll probably get over it
It never used to be this way…

Why do I jump to conclusions?
I just apologize and tune out all your lies….
