The Conversation

Yeah I been drinking
So we probably shouldn’t be talking
Cause you and I both know how I get
My mind stops functioning
And my mouth don’t stop moving
Pronouncing words my heart needs to say
While my mind places barriers to prevent escape
Which makes for unclear conversation
With words I should never say and inaudible pauses as they escape
Neither one of us really know what we should say
So to save us both the trouble let’s just hang up the phone
And save words like “I love you” for some distant and dying day
When we can accept we did too little, too late….
