    We need to talk. Not a good thing to hear.

    Reminds me of a country song, “She Said, He Heard.”
    It goes something like, “She said we need to talk, He heard it’s over…”

    Found it:
    They sat at the table, polite conversation
    Avoiding the issue at hand
    Then he made the coffee and she did the dishes
    And sat down at the table again
    She waited a moment hoping he would speak first
    Though it never had happened before
    He sat there in silence expecting the worst
    Til she couldn’t wait anymore

    She said “I’m mad”
    He heard “I’m leaving”
    She said “I need your attention”
    He heard “I want you to crawl”
    She said “I’m sad”
    He heard “It’s all your fault”
    There is no translation
    Emotions don’t fit into words
    There’s so much between what she
    And what he heard

    She said “I love you” that’s not the problem
    And I know how much you care
    But for too long now we’ve been walking on eggshells
    I just had to clear the air
    He looked at her like she was speaking chinese
    With some of the letters left out
    Try as he may he just didn’t know
    What she was talking about

    She said “I’m mad”
    He heard “I’m leaving”
    She said “I need your attention”
    He heard “I want you to crawl”
    She said “I’m sad”
    He heard “It’s all your fault”
    There is no translation
    Emotions don’t fit into words
    There’s so much between what she
    And what he heard

    Then he started smiling
    And she started laughing
    They both reached out their hands
    She said “I think we’re from two different planet
    No wonder we misunderstand”

    She said “I’m mad”
    He heard “I’m leaving”
    She said “I need your attention”
    He heard “I want you to crawl”
    She said “I’m sad”
    He heard “It’s all your fault”
    There is no translation
    Emotions don’t fit into words
    There’s so much between what she
    And what he heard

    My son was explaining a character in a video game to me yesterday: “She’s a siren. She can control everyone around her with just her mind.”

    I said: “Oh – so she’s normal then..”

    Talking is okay, but that listening part has to go.
