On The Stand – Ilana Charnelle

From the show Play Nice (2017).
 
It’s late on a Sunday, you call from the bar
So I drive for an hour just to be where you are
And when we kiss on the corner
Just like I was waiting for
I whisper, ‘I can’t love you
So don’t ask me for more’
 

I thought you knew
I thought that when I told you
You saw the words roll off my hands
Didn’t we have fun
Didn’t we have something
So why do I feel like I’m on the stand
Don’t judge me, don’t judge me
You’ll always know exactly where I stand
 

Been months since I’ve seen you, I’m hitting my stride
Spots me on the dance floor, she takes me aside
‘You broke his heart, you know you broke his heart’ she calls
And I want to insist, ‘No, the night that we kissed
I told him I couldn’t fall’

 
I thought he knew
I thought that when I told you
You saw the words roll off my hands
Didn’t we have fun
Didn’t we have something
So why do I feel like I’m on the stand
Don’t judge me, don’t judge me
You’ll always know exactly where I stand

 
Don’t judge me, don’t judge me
Don’t judge me, don’t judge me
You’ll always know exactly where I stand

 
Near on years of silence, and some fumbled repairs
I see you some evening, and god, it’s all there
The way you tell stories and I can’t look away
I’ll always love you but I just couldn’t stay
 

I thought you knew
I thought that when I told you
You saw the words roll off my hands
Didn’t we have fun
Didn’t we have something
But then I ruined all your plans
Think of me, think of me
You’ll always know exactly where I stand
