Well it happens now and then;
I guess it's time for it again.
How could I forget?

She wants to air out her frustrations
And tell me expectations
Haven't been met.

So I’ve got to form a plan
To show her I'm the man
She needs me to be.
So I'll tell her that she’s wrong
And convince her she belongs
Here with me.

I'm gonna show her how
She's failed to think things through.
And then I'll forgive her and
We'll start out like new.
I'll tell her it's not too late;
I still think she should stay.
(And if that doesn't work)
I'll tell her it's not my fault
but I'm sorry anyway.

Before she spends another night,
I need to face another fight
That I need to win.
So I've got to anticipate
All the arguments that she'll make
Before they begin.

Once she hears my stance
I'm certain there's no chance
That she won't relent.
I'll tell her that I love her,
Make sure every angle's covered,
She'll be content.

I'm gonna point out all the good things that I do.
And then I'll make her realize her claims just aren't true.
I'll tell her it's not too late; I still think she should stay.
(And if that doesn't work)
I'll tell her it's not my fault, but I'm sorry anyway.

She says this isn't like the other times;
She’s not listening to my excuses or lies.
But I know it’s just like before;
I'll persuade her, I am sure.
And if that doesn’t work, I'll apologize.

So I think it's going well;
She has fallen for my spell;
I'm in control.
I don't think that I have heard
Her say a single angry word;
I'm on a roll.

Where she's going?
What did I just do?
Didn't she hear me tell her I love you?
Didn’t she hear me explain everything away?
(Well I guess that didn’t work)
She can't hear it now,
But I'm sorry anyway.
