“You’re nodding
But you’re not approving
Your eyes are telling me
That you’re not listening

The way you’re leaning on the other end of the table
The way you’re biting your lips
The sighs built up at the end of my words
They’re shouting at me
That your heart isn’t here right now

Why can I hear it all?”
