Regrets - Ben Folds Five

I thought about
sitting on the floor in second grade
I couldn't keep the pace
I thought I was the only one
moving in slow motion
while the other kids knew something I did not
but if I acted like a clown
I thought it'd get me through
it did,
but that don't work no more
you're not a kid no more
I thought I'd do some travelling,
never did

I thought about
the hours wasted watching TV,
drinking beer
I thought about the things I thought about
until immobilized with fear
and all the great ideas I had
and how we just made fun
of those who had the guts to try and fail
and then I ended up in jail

regrets

if for a day,
it seems the police had made
a computer mistake
said there must be thousands like me
with the same name
anyway...

I thought about the things I settled for
or never tried
I never visited my grandma even once
when she was sick
before she died
so I don't blame you if you never come
and see me here again
