​Bad Connection

This song is by Cheryl Wheeler and appears on the album Driving Home (1993).

She sits and stares into space
He's wearing the same old face
She hates him half the time
And swears he doesn't mind
No kind word, no fond embrace

She says they don't talk enough
He feels like she talks too much
She sites her years of patience
In all their conversations
He sits down, turns TV up

She's talkin' but he's not listenin'
He's heard it a thousand times
He tells her but she don't hear him
She listens between the lines

She points out things they drive by
He speaks but not in reply
Then conversation ranges
From nil to terse exchanges
And she says it's useless to try

She's talkin' but he's not listenin'
'Cause he's heard it a thousand times
He tells her but she don't hear him
She listens between the lines

If there was love in this house, it's missin' by now
Their walkin' in two directions
And nothin' can clear, the static in here
Oh, talk about bad connections

She's talkin' but he's not listenin'
'Cause he's heard it a thousand times
And he swears, he tells her but she don't hear him
Damn, she listens between the lines
