Though she was unaware the signs were there quite clearly
Always contemplating, she kept hating herself
Sadly, he neglected her perspective too much
As she walked away his busy day began
Don't you see what's at stake, answers don't come easily
I'd like to know what it takes to be a priority
Things are so out of line, why won't you listen to me?
It's just a matter of time until she finally leaves
You're blind to her again
He never found a moment for atonement with her
The excuses killed her and he filled her with them
Her self-esteem was shattered, but it didn't matter to him
Promising improvement, he knew he went too far.
