squeezed out

i need you... oh, wait.
maybe not—here's another.
forget what i said . . . oh, wait.
maybe i do need you after all.

oh, who knows.
let's just see.
hang out there in silence.
i'll come get you when i need you.

everything's fine now.
i got what i need.
hang out there in silence.
i'll come get you when i need you.

•  •  •

you know what?
forget it.
i got it.
don't bother.

don't waste your
couple
lovely
words.
save them.
you'll need them.
there's so many more to use them on.
