Regrets

Original Artist: Ben Folds

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 traveling,
Never did.

Regrets,
Regrets.

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,
Regrets,
Regrets,
Regrets.

But just for a day,
It seems the police had made a computer mistake,
I said "There must be thousands like me with the same name."
Anyway,
I thought about the things I settled for,
I never tried,
I never visited my grandma even once when she was sick before she died,
So I don't blame if you never come and see me here again.

Regrets,
Regrets,
Regrets.
