maybe the idea of having another girl
is beautiful in your wondering mind
and leaving me behind seems
easy at the moment

but do you think
that you will be able to go
a whole car ride with her
without comparing the way that

she sits in the passenger side
hands in her lap with a faint smile on her face

to the way that

I sat in the middle next to you
switching the radio stations
until you got so aggravated
you could not help but yell at me?

do you honestly believe that

your ears won’t ring
due to the silence from the
absence of my voice screaming out
every song I know that comes on?

because if you do
by all means,
move on

but if you don’t, baby
maybe it’s best that you stay.
