Then Sally called back and asked how I felt,
And she said: "I know how to help -
Get over Alice".
She said: "Now Alice is gone,
But I'm still here,
You know I've been waiting
For twenty-four years..."
That's a bit presumptuous, isn't it? Yo, Sally (whoever the hell you are): he doesn't want you. He wants Alice. What makes you think you can be a drop-in replacement? Who are you? Mrs. Lovett?
Look, if he wanted you, he would have said something. Well, okay... he wouldn't have... But the point is, you're not the one he was pining over for 24 fucking years. And anyway, just being as much of a wimp as him does not mean the two of you are the perfect couple.
