It started in high school,
Things got bad
And I was in pain.
You didn’t want to admit it
So you stopped listening.
You became absorbed in yourself
To distract from my pain
And now you don’t know how to listen
And I don’t know how to talk to you.
Now all you do is talk
About the only topic you have: you.
And no-one else is listening
Because we’ve heard it all before.
You are scared of the silence
It tells you the horrible truth.
You don’t know us anymore,
And things aren’t right between us.
Because you weren’t listening when I needed you to.
