"The Message You Send"
Again you're staying up and reviewing your numbers
And you're winning some new friends with your smile
I thought that maybe you could work just a little bit less
And think of stopping home for a while.
For the third time this week you called me up on the phone
And you told me you'd be late once again
You said you'll be out, without any doubt,
I know you'll just be out with your friends.
I remember when we first fell in love with each other
We really didn't have anything
The only thing that would seem to matter
Was simply what the new day would bring.
With the offer you got, I found us drifting apart
We starting going separate ways
Although you're still living here, you rarely appear
What message do you think that I hear?
I remember what I first found attractive to me.
Was seeing you go out of your way
For anyone that would have a need.
But now there's something I can't explain.
You know the first thing I found so attractive to me
Is now something that is causing me pain.
It seems everyday, you're always away,
Is there something that you're trying to say?
I see us drifting apart, so far......
I think that I understand.
I think I know what you are trying to be.
But what you don't understand.
Is what it's doing to me.
Should I have to pretend
That I'm happy with just everything?
You know the message you send
Just isn't helping a thing.
