Liner Notes: 

I haven't often written duets but this idea came this morning. I'd love to have this picked up.


The Silent Treatment
© 2020 Cindy Prince

Here's you a pillow
Here's a blanket too
Go sleep somewhere else
I'm sure mad at you

You make me crazy
I think you do it for fun
Go sleep on the couch
Before I count to one

You're blowing this up
Just as you usually do
Give me that damn pillow
I'm tired of your chew

Her: Get outta my sight
Him: Have a good night
Her: I don't want to see you
Him: There ain't no way to please you
Her: This happens way too frequent
Him: Now comes the silent treatment
(Stomping away from each other)

Her: Don't tell me I'm cute when I'm mad
Him: Why do you think that's so bad

Maybe I'll calm down
But I wouldn't count on it
I hate that smug look
And you're a hypocrite

I'm not holding my breath
And I'll sleep real good
Cause you are impossible
And I'm so tired of your mood

Repeat chorus

Please keep your comments respectful, honest, and constructive. Please focus on the song and not the demo.

I'm sure this happens frequently in households. Clever and again relatable.

Very well written and relatable. You stir up some clear imagery here.
