Hostage

Hostage
(Tilbrook)

It’s been a long time since the two of us were joined up as one
We had some good times for a few years we forgot to have fun
Though splitting up was never what either of us intended
Now that’s all past we’re big and brave enough to try and be friends
Dinner at your house

We sit around and have a drink, catch up on people we know
Although it’s awkward I appreciate you having a go
After a while your partner ducks out for a smoke and then he says
I’m tired excuse me if I stretch out on the sofa to rest
Dinner at your house

You have a weary look on your face
As if you’re not in the right place
Happy? You say so
I would guess not though
It gives no pleasure to see
You look just like a hostage to me

He’s fast asleep the TV’s droning on about something boring
You flinch when he shouts to be quiet and then returns to his snoring
You look embarrassed, whisper sorry as we clear away the dishes
A glimpse I wish I hadn’t seen how your relationship is
Dinner at your house

You have a weary look on your face
As if you’ve ended up in the wrong place
Happy? You say so
I would guess not though
It gives no pleasure to see
You look just like a hostage to me

If he loses his temper
That easily
There’s two good reasons
For me to worry
