If I seem preoccupied
That’s because I am
Cause there’s been one thing on my mind
Ever since you left Joanne

Practiced this a thousand times
Waiting for this day
But now it’s come and here I find
That I’ve got nothing to say

Can’t you tell that I am drowning in the silence we create
Can’t you tell my heart is pounding ‘neath my nonchalant charade
Can’t you tell that I could be more than a shoulder
If I were bolder

It’s hard to think I miss when you
Were a taken man
Cause then I had a good excuse
I could lay it on Joanne

But now there’s only me to blame
And nothing real to fear
To see you now just gives me pain
Well I’d rather disappear

You’d never know that I have loved you since the moment that we met
You’d never know that I would rather die alone than risk regret
So can’t you tell that I could be more than a shoulder
If I were bolder
