He Can

What's your life been like

Since you started tossing pebbles

At her window?


What's her life been like

Since she's not the first one

To see your show?


She looks mad

And the world's just

Out to get her.


You're always mad

And there's nothing

Left for you anymore.


And what's my life been like

Since that complicated

Summer of seventeen?

What's my life been like

Since you suddenly

Turned so mean?


What I thought you showed me,

You didn't.

What I though love was,

Well, it isn't.


And what you tried to give me but simply couldn't--

He can.
