She's like an old episode of The Real World,
the kind you've already seen and don't care about,
but you watch anyway cause it's 2:30 and you've got an hour to
kill.

She'll talk, and he'll sit there,
already knowing what she'd say.
'Cause he's seen this clip on commercials,
so he's got the gist of her.

At the end of the story, he'll look up
he'll say something so vague it's romantic,
and she'll blush and flash a 5th grader smile,
the way she always does at the end of every show.
