master's degree

My partner decided to go back to school
She's doing a Masters Degree
Have you ever been involved with a person
Who studies psychotherapy?

At first I thought, hey this could work really well
I'll get counseling free every day
But little did little old me ever picture
The price I was going to pay

It's not just "Good morning", it's "How are you feeling?"
I wish you could verbalize more
You're such a performer, except when we're sharing
And that's when your feet are halfway out the door

You're mad at your parents, you don't show your anger
You take geographical cures
You tell me you love me, but not very often
So how can I ever be sure?"

That's what it's like when analysis strikes
But you know that there's more to the story
For every complaint or frustration I have
At least two other moments of glory

She shows me that I can have love in my life
That is real, and steady, and trusting
And occasionally allows me the patience I need
While my skeptical heart is adjusting

So whenever my dread and my terror come up
And relationship fills me with such fright
She's there to remind me that fear is just simply
Forgetting that everything's alright

Forgetting that everything's really all right
Without all the pushing and shoving
As time passes that's just the price that you pay
It's an increase in the "Cost of Loving"

My partner decided to go back to school
It's giving us lots to discuss

If Purple Hearts are ever given to couples

I hope that they give one to us
