You Don’t Ring – Written Monday 16th August 1999 (Aged 24)

You Don't Ring 

you don't call,
you don't ring 
just to say,
you are sorry
you don't come round 
sit down and say,
'let's talk about this'
that is not your way 
you think you are (always) right

you don't call
you don't have the time 
it is, 'my fault', once again 
funny, isn't it,
how it is always my fault 
but to admit that you are wrong 
well... that is your fault
you don't call
so we can work out this problem 
you just sit and home and fume
you cannot grow up a little 
you don't ring
