I Wrote You A Love Song

I wrote you a love song
for good times sake,
Hoping to sing it
when from my bed you awake.

The bad story is
that you aren’t laying next to me,
Because you went out last night
as it’s him you wanted to see.

Came home from working all day
and you were out,
You left me a message
telling me things I know nothing about.

Told me you would be late from work
and for me not to call,
Read a number and I phoned you
since it was written on the wall.

An unknown man answered
as I could hear a background voice,
He told you to shut up
and not to make any love making noise.

I know it was you
as he called you by name to silence the mood,
He didn’t need to tell me his name
as the conversation I understood.

I wrote you a love song
for good times sake,
Hoping to sing it
when from my bed you awake.

I saw the wedding ring in the jewelry box
that I had placed on your finger 10 years past,
You always had it on every night in my bed
and you pretended to fall asleep very fast.

It seemed like your working hours often changed
and I noticed you never brought money home,
Your mouth often smelled like you had been drinking
as your lips tasted like alcohol and the sour foam.

You are never here when I need your love
and too often you are always wearing mini skirts,
Keep telling me that the job requires it
but somehow your lipstick is on your blouses and shirts.

Last time I checked you had no job
because you lost it for always showing up late,
Your previous boss left a message
telling you that he had to break the date.

I guess I will have to sing you the words
that are written expressively in the song,
If you think that you can just get up and go
you will surely know that there is something wrong.

I wrote you a love song
for good times sake,
Hoping to sing it
when from my bed you awake.
