Roddy Williams – The Atheist Poet

no i did not get your e-mail (2006)

no i did not get your e-mail
yes i know it’s in your sent box
as you told me when i saw you
and i said that i would check.

no i haven’t checked my voicemail
but i’m speaking to you now so
i will look into my e-mail
while i have you on the phone.

no i do not have your e-mail
yes i know it’s in your sent box
we’ve been through all this already!
i just did! i did! i checked

and i still don’t have your e-mail
and i know you don’t believe me.
you don’t say it, but i feel it
there’s no need to doublecheck

but i do. i check the junkmail
though i know that i don’t have to
but you make me doubt my senses
so i have to check what’s real

and i still don’t have your e-mail
though i stare i cannot see it
and i feel your disappointment
through the dead tone down the line.
