Not Tonight

For Broken Hearts

I'm only doing this to prove to myself

That I'm not pathetic

That I'm neither weak-minded

nor perhaps a bit mad

at the very least that I'm not

some sort of nuisance

Chasing you when maybe 

I'm supposed give up

Clinging to us when it could be 

you'd prefer I loose my grip

and let you drift further from me.

Am I a fool, missing every subtle clue

you send my way?

What's the script for breaking up

when neither of us wanted to?

And what exactly is the etiquette

for remaining friends?
