you asked if i was hungry, and i said, "yes, yes i am."
and you said okay, and then you didn't do anything.
ten minutes later, i asked why you had asked me,
and you said, "i was gonna make you something,
but you told me you weren't hungry."
i only sighed and folded my hands,
since this has happened only too many times before.
WHY CAN'T YOU HEAR ME?
CAN YOU HEAR ME NOW, NOW THAT I'M SCREAMING,
I'M SHOUTING AND EVEN THE DOG JUMPED,
THE CAT RAN DOWN THE HALL AND MY NEIGHBORS WENT OUTSIDE
AND YOU STILL CAN'T HEAR ME,
YOU CAN'T HEAR ME WHEN I TELL YOU I STILL NEED YOU
AND YOU CAN'T HEAR ME WHEN I TELL YOU YOU'RE HURTING ME
AND YOU SURE CAN'T HEAR ME WHEN I ASK YOU TO PLEASE BE GENTLE,
AND I JUST DON'T UNDERSTAND HOW YOU CAN'T HEAR ME
WHEN I'M SCREAMING RIGHT AT YOU.
WHY DON'T YOU EVER LISTEN?
