"If I could turn back time"

  People are mean when there upset
     Sometimes expect people to say something they don't mean
     It happens
     Couples fight
     She tells her man of ten years she can't stand him no more and he tells her to die
     He knows that wasn't right
     A few mornings later the husband wants to do something nice for his wife
     An ongoing conflict every night repeats for a couple of weeks so he sleeps on the loveseat
     In sync
     With her melancholy of madness that has made her stay in thier bedroom for so long
     He sits at the bottom of the stairs wondering what's wrong
     Thinking maybe then, If he begins making some flapjacks and bacon
     It will start creating a reason for sure
     To present her with breakfast in bed
     Softly knocking on thier door
     It creeks ajar, she seems to be snoozing real hard
     Next to the dresser he finds a glass of wine and an empty bottle of Xanax bars
     He creeps closer to give her a shake, she won't wake
     As a matter of fact she won't breath
     The husband spills a trace of pancake on her face cause she won't eat
     "Respond! Come on!"
     Becoming more afraid as she just lays
     Maby she's still mad and wants him to just go away
     Pleading for his spouse to stop acting this way
     Repeated apologizes for the way he behaved
     Who's to blame? And why is his wife eternally ignoring him for the rest of his life?
     Didn't expect her to do what he said
     Regretting, he's replaying the reckless over reaction in his head
     Going head to head, playing head games with himself  he can't even win.....
     That's when he decides to jump out the second story window head first, so he can join her again.
