Complicated

I like people watching and I guess I’ve always been reasonably good at thinking a few steps ahead when it comes to peoples reactions. I suppose that’s why for a lot of my formative years I wouldn’t act through fear of causing a negative reactions. We of course know that this then leads on to bad feelings because you should have acted in the first place…but that is what growing up is about.

 

Complicated

I knew that if you kissed him,
He’d still walk away.
Because I knew he’d already
Chosen.
I knew that when he arrived
That she’d not be there.
Because I knew she’d not gone for him.
I knew, because he’d told her,
That he wanted her to be there.
I knew that when she ordered a drink,
She’d wait.
I knew that she’d contemplate that drink
And I knew that she’d never finish it.
Because I knew he’d never turn up.
I knew because he had already found
Someone that I knew he really wanted.
But I knew she didn’t want him
And so I knew he’d chase in vain
I knew she’d forsake him.
And I knew it would be agony.
Although you doubt I know,
I knew what would happen,
Because I know that in the end,
He’d never not kiss you back
And go to her,
Who’d not see him to meet another.
Who I knew wouldn’t arrive
Because she was in a different place.
Where I knew he wouldn’t be
Because he wanted to go elsewhere.
But I knew she’d not be there,
And so I knew he’d never go.
I knew, I’ve always known,
People aren’t that complicated.
