Casual Conversations

  • It doesn't matter what I say
    You never listen anyway
    Just don't know what you're looking for

    Imagination's all I have
    But ever then you say it's bad
    Just can't see why we disagree

    Casual conversations how they bore me
    They go on and on endlessly
    But no matter what I say
    You ignore me anyway
    I might as well talk in my sleep (I could weep)

    You try to make me feel so small
    Until there's nothing left at all
    Why go on? just hoping that we'll get along

    There's no communication left between us
    But is it me or you who's to blame?
    There's nothing I can do, yes you're fading out of view
    Don't know if I feel joy or pain in searching

    And now it's all been said
    If you must leave then go ahead
    Should feel sad
    But I really believe that I'm glad
    I really believe that I'm glad
    I really believe that I'm glad Writer/s: RICHARD DAVIES, ROGER HODGSON
