Kicking Herself

She’s kicking herself
Because she couldn’t be nice
Most of the time
I asked more than twice
Where did I go wrong
Maybe it wasn’t me
It’s so easy to say
It takes two to tango
The truth is obvious

Perhaps not this time

I bought you a shirt
I brought you a coat
I held you in winter
Supplied you with hope

I wish she could let me in

Her insides
Didn’t agree with me
Arguments ensued

Maybe just incompatible
I’ll love you forever
And you’ll live to tell
The stories of us
By our wishing well

Dreams of a child
Dreams of a home
These are all different now
Though not totally gone

Different dreams
And she’s kicking herself
For resenting my love
And she’s kicking herself
For resenting my talents
And she’s kicking herself
For not being able
To love me for me
For not being able
To rejoice in the stable

I still love you
Just the same as before
The courts all decided
Our friendship was more
They call it a marriage
I call it a score

One up me each time
Gloves on or off
Always contrary
Believe me
I don’t want to fight
All I want is a sanctuary

Better off friends
A friendship not lost
Better off friends
And she’s kicking herself
For the one I would try
To create a small family with
Has now passed her by

But I am still here
To hold you my dear
Forever a soul companion

Just not a husband
