Sorry to interrupt your phone call but,
The baby’s crying,
I know your phone call is important
And I know you’re going to be irritated to have to hang up,
So I’m sorry to interrupt your phone call.

Sorry to interrupt your TV show but,
my sister fell down and is hurt,
I know your show is so important
And I know you’re going to be upset to stop watching TV,
So I’m sorry to interrupt your television show.

Sorry to interrupt your conversation but,
I need help with my math homework,
I know how important your conversation
I know you’re going to be furious to stop talking,
So sorry to interrupt your conversation.

Sorry to interrupt your meal but,
I thought maybe once we could just talk,
And I know you’re going to be furious to stop eating,
So I’m sorry to interrupt your meal.

Sorry to interrupt your life but,
I sometimes forget you don’t have time for me
Even though I’m really important too,
And I know I’m really hurt that I always have to interrupt you,
So maybe I’m not sorry to interrupt you life.

This is so real---trying to connect with a person who never seems to have time for you.
