Pssst… Sweetie…

Don’t let it bother you so much.

Here’s the name of that game:
“Make ’em think about me”

First goes up
Then goes down
Dodges to the left
Weaves to the right
Says’ll be pleased
Then doesn’t be
Not feeling good
Upset
Needs comforting
Pushes comfort away
Snaps
At you
Gotta understand
Under stress
(You’re not)
Superior sensitivity
(Yours isn’t)
Fine mind
(Ditto)
Got responsibilities
(You don’t)
Didn’t really mean it
‘Cause didn’t really say it
Specially anything good
Just let you imagine it
Hope for
Wish for
Work for it

Specially the
Work for it part

And now the
Figure me
Figure me
Figure me out
If you can
But you can’t
Part

So

Here’s what you do
To win this game:

Go find something
Happier to think about
