Messed Up

Pass by me
 Her footsteps whisper
Pour coffee
 Black it talks
Stir the spoon
 Heated walks
Sit down stare
 here her cry
Just another man
 A man am I?
Ground the finger on the table
 Peel myself another label
Jerk
 Dick
Just cause I kissed this random stranger
 Now the hospital is full
And she's the doctor with my prescription
 but I wanted try the new flu shot
And now I'm sick, and my insurance stocked
Comes on in
 On red eye junction
Hard to see her 
 Hard to function
Want to talk
 but only listen
Stare on down
 My coffee vision
Swirling black
 Says to stand up
Be army strong
 Be army tough
But in the end that numbers sad
 Loneliest...
I've played that band
 And now I sit behind her back
Wondering how much longer before she acts
 Please forgive me
Let's just pass this one up
 And then she stirs
But then she walks...
 Man
I really messed this up...
