(don schlitz/billy livsey)

Down the middle of the page I drew a line
At the top I wrote my name, the date, the time
And sitting like a schoolgirl at my desk
I decided it was time to take the test

On the left I wrote the reasons I should leave
The differences that we had forseen
By the time I got it all off my chest
It looked like we were sure to fail the test

I wrote down every fault, I wrote down every fight
Every hurtful word we ever said in spite
To tear our world apart, I did my best
It almost broke my heart to take the test

I wrote down every fault, I wrote down every fight
Every hurtful word we ever said in spite

Then on the right I wrote the reasons why
I should stay with you until I die
I only wrote one word, no more, no less
I knew I was finished with the test

The word I wrote was love, and I confess
That's the only way to pass the test
