Hang Ups


Words on the phone — 
you talk about wrapping your legs around me
and there’s no way I’m not going to hurt
when you hang up.

Sitting here alone — 
you tell me maybe you can make it out here.
It’s easy to say yes and mean maybe
when you can hang up.

Using that tone — 
you speak and pull me apart in pieces,
easier when you don’t have to see me,
then you just hang up.

Words on the phone — 
you say the sweetest things to me and I believe,
but we’ve got different ideas of what it means
when we hang up.
