The Best Of You

be at that meeting on time
what would they think?
points made and confirmed
nodding heads, bobble heads

don't have time for listening
stories of the day
dreams of the future
how you feel

i don't get the best of you
i get the rest of you
but i'll take the rest of you
if it's all you got

convene in doorways
talk about technology fixes
communication processes
and regions of the earth

wanna unwind
wanna be quiet
sick of hearing myself
sick of drivin'

eye contact and follow-up questions
curious and stern
remembering your lessons
and passing them on

ask, then ask again
resort to telling
when telling don't work
drag her out of bed

i don't get the best of you
i get the rest of you
but i'll take the rest of you
if it's all you got
