I saw an open door and I looked inside it 
But I'd no idea 
What you were hiding 

So now I'm holding the bag and it's heavy 
And the conversation stopped 
So much for friendly 

And if I told you I was not very good 
At making small talk when I should 
But you have one advantage over me 
At times like this I am lost at sea 

Why can't I see it for what it really is 
And know it like I know my name 
And if it's all the same I don't like this game 
So let's pack it up 
And call it even 

Well I'm not the type to speak 
Just to hear my voice 
And I'm sure you'd hear me out 
If you had the choice 
But your words keep coming out 
Never ending 
And I wonder if I'd have to shout 
The message I'm sending 

And if I told you I was dying of thirst 
And the sky was falling just to make it worse 
Would you just smile and continue on 
As if your mouth had a race to run 


Well I'm glad we had this talk 
I feel better 
And if I've something else to say 
I'll write a letter 

And if I told you you were not very good 
At hearing others when you really should 
Would you just smile and push me away 
You can't be bothered there's still words to say 


Let's just call it even, even, even
