about

The things you create when you are married to a therapist.

lyrics

The words you said didn't make it into my head.
What I thought I heard was something different instead.
So I snapped at you and stomped my way down the stairs.
The remote is in pieces, and here I sulk in my chair.

Sometimes I dance, sometimes I step on your feet
Sometimes we laugh, sometimes our eyes don't meet
It's hard to dance when our feet get out of sync
How will we work it out?

I'm picking out the words for the next time that I see your face
They are angry and defensive and really all over the place
It wasn't my fault that you said something shitty to me
And I know I can't just let the situation be

Sometimes I dance, sometimes I step on your feet
Sometimes we laugh, sometimes our eyes don't meet
It's hard to dance when our feet get out of sync
How will we work it out?

I take some deep, deep breaths
It all starts to make more sense
You would never say anything like that
I reacted just like a brat

Now we're sitting on the porch trying to work it all out
Miscommunication sucks, we've learned without a doubt
I am thankful you are patient when I make a stupid mistake
For the sake of everything, I'm glad that we stayed awake
