Thanks – Written Tuesday 15th February 1994 and October 1994 (Aged 18/19)


i am sorry that it happened
it made me cry
i am so sorry
but you know why
you changed me forever
all i wanted,
was for us to be together
you you stand clear from the start
but i tried to convince myself otherwise
the cliché tells me i have a broken heart
suddenly from my world
i find that i have to take responsibility
for things that are my fault
when i first met you, i was a child
now i am an adult
at least in the way i feel
i have too remember that the world
sure is hell and that hell is real
i could have housed you
but what is all that crap about
what am i meant to do
in the end, no matter what
there has to be some thanks
