Disappointment

I just realised. This song isn’t about someone else. It’s me.

“Dead as dead can be
The doctor tells me
But I just can’t believe him
Ever the optimistic one
I’m sure of your ability to become
My perfect enemy

Wake up (why can’t you?)
And face me (come on now)
Don’t play dead (don’t play dead)
‘Cause maybe (because maybe)
Someday I’ll walk away and say
You disappoint me
Maybe you’re better off this way

Leaning over you here
Cold and catatonic
I catch a brief reflection
What you could and might have been
It’s your right and your ability
To become my perfect enemy

Wake up (why can’t you?)
And face me (come on now)
Don’t play dead (don’t play dead)
‘Cause maybe (because maybe)
Someday I’ll walk away and say
You disappoint me
Maybe you’re better off this way

Maybe you’re better off this way
Maybe you’re better off this way
Maybe you’re…”
