My Relationships Are Fine – Written Monday 15th May 2006 (Aged 31)

My Relationships Are Fine

my relationships are fine
as you tell and as you ask
you tell strangers,
you tell me about your problems
but no one agrees
your two years of head in the sand
means nothing to long term friends
who do actually understand
and if you do not like it
well, i could not care less
my relationships are fine
i asked on saturday night
after the girls had finished the wine
they drew me near,
so we moved onto the beer
i think the problems arise
only because you cannot cope
and the only way you can
is to blame other people
after all you have no self responsibility
my relationships are fine
shall we talk about yours?
