Rewriting mails to get the right tone of voice
Rewording for hours, which only I’ll notice
If I could only find the write words to solve the argument
Which only I’ve noticed

I’m only angry as this band or thing/relationship is so important
I’ve never told you, but every time I do
I feel that it needs one more note too

What’s so small to you is so large to me

Obviously I think it, but I can’t say
In case you get the wrong impression
I’ve been on edge for days, because I told you the truth when drunk
But you don’t seem to have been listening
I meant that us having jobs just isn’t the same, as them being more important than what we do
I’ve wanted this for a long time and I hate it that you don’t too

Excuse my fingers – I don’t know what I’m doing

I’m worried that I’m being blatant when I touch your arm
But I guess that I can’t give out the right signs
You don’t notice, but it’s all of the time
I’m sorry that I can’t love everyone all the time

I can’t come out now to the party, because you’ll be there with him
I guess that I’ve made the right decision…
But I’m lonely now that I’ve stayed in
Now I’m at a pub. I’m feeling more hopeful, meeting two strangers
You just don’t notice, but it’s all of the time
