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.
