I was one of the good kids

I was one of the good kids

Didn’t think it really mattered

Just playing their silly games

By calling out those names

 

I didn’t know her dad was dead

I didn’t know he was rarely fed

I didn’t know what was in their heads

Or how they felt about the things I said

 

I was one of the good kids

I didn’t think lives could be shattered

over playing silly games

Now I know I was to blame

 

That silly little teenage me

Who didn’t know enough to see

The damage I had done

That these games cannot be won

 

I hope you never stayed awake at night

Never ever even thought twice

About those teenage idiots

Who don’t know just how it is

 

Now I know enough to know it hurt

I’m sure it made you feel like dirt

that at times it got so tough

That you thought of turning life to dust

 

I was one of the good kids

I didn’t think it really mattered

We were playing silly games

Now I know who was to blame

 

I wish I could say it wasn’t me

I wish I could say that I’m sorry

I hope you’ve long moved on

And I am long forgotten
