Easy Life – Written Saturday 5th November 1994 (Aged 19)

Easy Life

it all seemed so easy, yesterday
before they took my innocence away
before they stopped letting me play
days when i believed in the tooth fairy
father christmas and postman pat
it seems so stupid now
but i did believe in all that
it seemed to matter somehow
my childhood seems so far away
the days when i was small,
looking back
i wonder if it existed at all
when i believed in everything
when i still had my dreams
and i made beanbag toys with mum
and many other things,
when i was young
when it seemed so easy
yesterday now seems to far away
from the life that i lead today
life seemed so easy, or did it?
i do remember so much pain
and i do not think i could live it again
