I went to talk to her today,
I had not much to say,
I didn’t need to anyway,
She took the conversation away.
I felt I was sitting in a classroom,
But not all was gloom and doom.
While I sat there in that room,
I started hearing . . . something.
I heard things that I already knew,
I wanted an answer that was new,
She also said some things so true,
I didn’t knew what I should do.
Before it was all said and done,
I knew that I had won,
I told her she’d gone on and on,
She agreed that I’d gained none.
I went and sat there in that room,
I felt that I had to leave too soon,
I went to see her in that room,
I had to go home, much too soon.
