I didn’t notice, I didn’t see
That our stocks were slowly falling.
We should have thought of liability
And the pain that we were causing.

I didn’t notice, I didn’t see.

They say that time is money
And I guess I didn’t have the budget for you.
There’s no need to be angry
Because I really think you knew.

I didn’t notice, I didn’t see.

We couldn’t afford the loans
Or the favors bought on credit.
My heart is the Dow Jones –
It’s dropped six points; and you just stood back and let it.

I didn’t notice, I didn’t see.

What we had was no more than a transaction
And I think that you declined me.
It’s gonna take more than numbers and fractions
To be what we’re supposed to be.

Now I notice, now I see.

A creative way to describe this. It gets the point across and is something most hasn't seen before. Nice and sad. But understood
