celebrating and creating our own LGBTQ+ history in honour of Sheila McWattie

day five

The accidental girlfriend


It took being hit by a car, love,

to show me you couldn’t care.

Reading a book in a Jacuzzi, babes,

was more important than you being here.

It was dramatic proof I grant you, sweet

– and one I’m in no hurry to repeat –

but while I lay there bruised and alone for hours,

it was more important for you to sew your trousers.

So I get it, honey, you need your space,

your time to chill and rest.

But it showed me that while I loved you, baby,

you always loved you best.
