There is a couple arguing on the street-corner
In plain daylight
In front of everyone
About neglect, about not fulfilling expectations

As a second couple walks past them holding hands
She looking up into his eyes
He pulling her into a close embrace
And making it clear to all that they are one

While the third couple spills out onto boulevard
From the small coffee shop
Laughing aloud for all to hear
While she gestures, he looks to the sky
