Love Song

Mike and Lisa are in the car. Sara Bareilles’ “Love Song” comes on.

I’m not gonna write you a love song
’cause you ask for it
’cause you need one you see
I’m not gonna write you to stay
All you have is leaving
I’m gon’ need a better reason
To write you a love song today today

***

Lisa: “I love this song!”

Mike: “I know you do. I don’t get why. It’s mean.”

Lisa: “It’s not mean. It’s honest.”

Mike: “He asked for a love song, and she won’t write him one. That’s a little mean.”

Lisa: “Uh uh. She’s saying that him being all needy and manipulative makes her not want to write him a love song.”

Mike: “If you needed a love song I’d write you one.”

Lisa: “That’s very lovely. I don’t need a love song, but if you want to write me one that’d be great. I’d write you a love song, too.”

Mike: “But only because I don’t need it.”

Lisa: “Well, if you needed it, I’d probably still write you one. But the fact you don’t need it makes me want to write you one much more.”

Mike: “That’s messed up.”
