Uncle Bonsai “Doug's Divorce: Part Two”

Do you like to pull the band-aid quick or slow?
Do you like to be the first or last to know?
Is there someone you could phone
So you won't be here alone
As you learn about the future blow by blow

Did you ever have the feeling something's died?
Did you ever notice nothing left inside?
If I told you I was spent
Would you wonder what it meant
As we wandered through the silence side by side

I could never tell what you were thinking
Maybe if we talked a little less and listened more
Every day that past I felt us sinking
Deeper than I ever sank before

I'll be coming in the morning for my life
And I hope that you'll forgive the twisted knife
But when it comes right down to it
We just never really fit
And I wish you better luck with your next wife

You're a lovely boy, Doug
Such a lovely boy
There's a lovely girl out there still waiting
You deserve some joy, Doug
You deserve some joy
You're lovely boy, Doug
You're a lovely boy

Have you ever simply lost your appetite
Or thought of never coming home one night
That would really end it well
It's a story you could sell
And you could finally tell your mother she was right

You're a lovely boy, Doug
Such a lovely boy
There's a lovely girl on the horizon
There's a world to join, Doug
There's a world to join
You're lovely boy, Doug
You're a lovely boy

There is nothing I can say to ease the burden
I was never one for crocodile tears
I will leave you everything to store your hurt in
And I'll give you alimony for at least a couple years

You're a lovely boy, Doug
Such a lovely boy
I was not as lovely as you needed
And I filled the void, Doug
I just filled the void
You're lovely boy, Doug
You're a lovely boy

Do you like to pull the band-aid quick or slow?
Do you like to be the first or last to know?
You were such a gentle touch
And you gave away so much
I never thought about the undertow
But I always knew I'd be the first to go

Did Doug end up marrying Suzy?

Hmmmm, things aren't going well, I take it. :-(

Hugs.
