This time, she really tried:
Came home and the place was decorated.
Put his pictures in frames,
Even ones of his friends that she hated.
She smiled from the couch
And waited for him to come over.
He put down his suitcase and gave her a kiss on her shoulder.

"I couldn't wait to see you,
My baby boy.
I'm tired of keeping score.
Every time you get home,
It feels to me
You've got one foot out the door."

She taught him how to dance
In the evening light of a little kitchen.
She whispered with her soft hands,
And told me things she always wished for.
Then I get so dizzy
For these conversations that go in circles.
I'm sick of walking into rooms
And seeing shifty eyes make nervous faces.

She's sleeping on her own
For the last three weeks.
She couldn't stand the bed,
The pillows, or the sheets.
Every time you get home,
You promise me
Things are gonna change.
I just wait and see.
