Whatever Happened to My Well Planned Life? – Written December 1992 (Aged 17)

Whatever Happened to My Well Planned Life?

whatever happened to the well planned life
when i was young i was told everything would be alright
get to thirty and i would have two children and a smiling wife
whatever happened to the well paid job
the one education promised me as long as i shut up
and listened to the teacher’s gob
where was my stable family when i was young
i thought we were having fun
now one is on the run and they’ve got themselves a new life
whatever happened to my life
when i was young i was told everything would be alright
