Verse 1:
Hello -- Within quotes would be appropriate
But no -- The weight of this just keeps my lips
Laid low -- Am I staring at my stomach or my shoe lace
I think, as long as I don't look at you

I'm fine -- What you throw at me is easy
Through phone wires -- But your face reads like an autopsy
Those lines -- That crumple outward from the sides
Of your eyes -- Are not from smiling all the time

Chorus:
Maggie it's been a while but I'm sad to say
That nothing's changed
I thought I'd Ieft behind all that kept me frail

Verse 2:
So -- You're dancing more these days
And it shows -- Adding a 12-step to that 2-step that
I know -- The one we used to do together
Where the tempo -- Was far too fast in beat

And I'll speak -- As if age were backing me
But what I see -- Are the same two kids and one's in tears
Who's tightly -- holding on to one who's weak
But trying -- As the make-up bleeds into his sleeve

Chorus:
Maggie it's been a while but I'm sad to say
That nothing's changed
I thought I'd Ieft behind all that kept me frail
And there's been improvement
But it's still useless
I can't be your friend

Bridge:
'Cause I can't be the mourner that I was before
I can't recall when you weren't sinking
And when I'm in your corner I only feel walls
I feel them fall and it keeps me thinking that
In this place
The only way
Your problems changed
Is how they grew up with you

Chorus:
Maggie it's been a while but I'm sad to say
That nothing's changed
I thought I'd Ieft behind all that kept me frail

Maggie it's been a while but I'm sad to say
That nothing's changed
I thought I'd Ieft behind all that kept me frail
And there's been improvement
But it's still useless
I can't be your friend

Not after what happened
