Roles Reversed

Coffee or Something

Jude blankly stared at him, he sang that song. The song she wrote during one of the bad times. It brought up so many emotions about when he left. "Come ON Jude." she berated herself, "It's been years. He left for a reason."

“Something wrong?” Tom asked, concerned because she looked as if she was going to burst into tears at any moment.

“No, I'm fine; go ahead.”

He started in, not so sure she really wanted to hear it.

I feel my heart doesn't fit
'Cause it beats too many times
And it skips
Running races in my head and then

I feel my hands don't work
Touching your skin in the dark
I was put here to watch
Not meant to get caught up in it
Close to your skin

Up and down
On this merry-go-round
Take Me Up
Put me back in one piece
But let me feel you

Well, here I am
Landing myself again
Ready to fake on a win
But let me break him in
Let me break him in

I made a choice
Try and make myself invisible
Make sure I can fit it
Cause I’m sick of feeling miserable
Hidden by some lies
Sacrifice my friendly ties
Started from scratch
Won't attack if he walks my way
Hear what he has to say

I feel my heart doesn't fit
'Cause it beats too many times
And it skips
Running races in my head and then

I feel my hands don't work
Touching your skin in the dark
I was put here to watch
Not meant to get caught up in it
Close to your skin

I made a choice
Try and make myself invisible
Make sure I can fit it
Cause I’m sick of feeling miserable
Hidden by some lies
Sacrifice my friendly ties
Started from scratch
Won't attack if he walks my way
Hear what he has to say

I feel my heart doesn't fit
'Cause it beats too many times
And it skips
Running races in my head and then

He sang it so well, Jude thought, if only they knew what that song means to me, the memories that it brings, but whatever, he did a good job and he doesn’t need to hear my sob story.

“That was great Quincy, you did awesome” Jude said with a smile.

“Thanks.” He replied.

“Now let’s do it again and record.” Jude told Tom.

They recorded and mixed and put the disc on Darius’s desk and left for the night.

Outside G-Major…

Jude said goodbye to Tom and walked silently out to her car, but then he called after her.

"Yeah?" she looked over the roof of her car at him.

"If you aren’t busy, wanna grab a cup of coffee or something?" He asked, knowing by the look on her face, she needed to talk to someone.

Jude thought it over for a minute before replying, "Sure, why not."
